Britain's most easterly Pride event will take centre stage in a prominent park later this year.

Lowestoft Town Council will be hosting Lowestoft Pride in Sparrows Nest Gardens on Saturday, August 5.

A town council spokesman said: "Our aim is to make this Pride event enjoyable for everyone with a family-friendly feel to the day.

"To make the event as open and inclusive as possible, we are asking performers to get in touch.
