It’s all systems go for Eastbourne’s Pride event.
A date has been set for 22 July 2017 for the parade, which is being likened to a Mardi Gras celebration.
The parade will go from Pirates Cove to Princes Park, where there will be a stage with an Abba tribute, along with East Sussex band, Hot Detroit. Other acts are expected to be named nearer the time.
A launch event’s planned for 17 November at the Queen’s Suite on Eastbourne Pier from 7.30-9pm.
