The LGBTQ+ Festival will be returning to Swindon on Saturday 10 August.

The event, sponsored by Nationwide Building Society is now in its 11th year. Kicking off proceedings will be a vibrant parade just after 11am, that will weave its way through Old Town. And there will be a variety of performances taking place on the main stage throughout the day including performances from headline acts N-trance. Electronic dance group N-trance has sold over five million records worldwide and some of their hit singles include “Set You Free” and “Forever”.

Faye Whitmarsh, Head of Culture & Inclusion at Nationwide Building Society said: “We are passionate about valuing human difference and inclusion. 

“These events are a great opportunity to celebrate in a fun and fully inclusive way, and bring our members, employees and the local community together.”

Chairman Kristian Wheeler added, “Having Nationwide back onboard as our Main Sponsor for 2019, is an incredible achievement and shows how businesses are supporting their LGBTQ+ staff and the whole community of Swindon & Wiltshire.”

The Old Town Gardens will be filled with a burst of colour and Festival atmosphere, centered around the Nationwide Stage and Stephen G Sloan Stage (sponsored by Thames Water). The Festival will also have a Family Zone, Arts Zone, Shopping Zone, Community Zone, and Craft zone which is new for 2019.
