Isle of Wight Festival 2017
The Isle of Wight Festival has announced that they are supporting the Island's first ever Pride event. Members of TeamPride will be running a stand at the Festival in Seaclose Park on the weekend of June 9th until the 11th and invite you to come and join them in a range of activities to raise awareness of Pride and of the LGBT community on the Island. Passports will be handed out to revellers, encouraging people to revisit the Island on July 15th and to make a weekend of it!

David Thornton from Visit Isle of Wight said
With the Island being placed in the top ten places to honeymoon for LGBT couples, we want to encourage everyone to revisit our Island, spend a weekend exploring and to ensure that everybody feels welcomed here.

Isle of Wight Pride takes place in Ryde on July 15th, starting with a parade through the town at 11am and leading to a large free event on Harbour Beach. Ticket registration is essential and over 1000 tickets have already been snapped up, so make sure you register and don’t miss out. Visit for further details and to register for tickets.

The Isle of Wight Festival 2017 will take place at Seaclose Park from June 8th-11th with headline performances from Rod Stewart, Run DMC, David Guetta and Arcade Fire.
