Perform: Pride aLive Stage

Back for it’s now 5th year is our Pride aLive stage. Featuring fantastic local artists and bands who are either friends, allies and supporters of, or who themselves identify as LGBT+. Throughout the day they will be performing a mix of their own original songs and popular tunes. We have a strong and vibrant music scene here in Reading with many bands and acts on the cusp of breaking into the professional industry. This stage showcases that talent and the generous support there is locally for LGBT+ and across all diversity.

We are once again partnering with Readipop, a local charity which uses music and arts to enrich lives, communities and the cultural landscape of Reading and the Thames Valley, working with everyone from vulnerable young people and older folk, to aspiring artists and musicians.
