Medway Pride 2020 will be the first pride parade from Chatham High Street through Rochester High Street, with a free festival in Rochester Castle Gardens. We estimate there could be 3500+ attend Medway Pride 2020, which could develop over following years, like Canterbury Pride which saw over 15,000 attending in 2018 & 2019. 


Wakefield Pride is an example of how Medway Pride could have a positive impact on the local economy. Wakefield’s population is similar to Medway and over 3,100 people attended the 2018 Wakefield LGBT Pride main event with many more filling out LGBT Pride Partner venues, an estimated £354,440.29 was generated back to the Wakefield economy by the Wakefield LGBT Pride 2018 event.
