Taunton Live & Pride
Vivary Park, Taunton on Saturday 16th July 2022
GoCreate Taunton were delighted to facilitate Taunton’s first Pride as part of Taunton Live Arts Festival in 2021.
Since then, Taunton Pride has formed its own working committee and has been set up as a Community Interest Company (CIC). For 2022, Taunton Pride CIC plan to collaborate with GoCreate CIC to produce Taunton Live & Pride, a one day celebration of Arts, Culture, Diversity & Inclusion in Vivary Park on Saturday 16th July and a Pride Parade through Town leading to the Event. The Festival will have multiple Stages, a Well-being Area coordinated by The Sangha House, a Literary Area coordinated by The Jemima Layzell Trust, Dance and outdoor arts Pop-Ups, Children’s Area, Artists Quarter offering free creative workshops, Awareness & Support Stalls, Artisan Food Market, Bars and Cultural Pop Up’s!
This will be a Free Event Thanks to our wonderful Sponsors, Volunteers and the support of local LGTBQ+ Groups.

Taunton Pride is crucial for members of the queer community to see that they genuinely do have a community
Pride Festivals allow people to express themselves and that's humanity at its best.

Pride is a call to the community "we are here, we are proud, you are welcome".
Pride is important to Taunton to bring people together from all communities and all celebrate the love and respect we have for each other and to promote diversity and equality.
