On Saturday 22 July, town centre roads were closed to allow for a full day of family fun including live entertainment from two outdoor stages and a variety of stalls and activities throughout the day. Including Congleton’s first ever Pride Parade. Then for adults only, After Hours in the town hall all the way to midnight. This festival has grown since 2019, and is now one of the highlights of the Congleton summer calendar.
Highlights from the performers on the main stage include; Andy Hofton, Frantic Fridays, Bored Adventures, and headliner Britney Tribute act ‘Absolute Britney’ by Lucy Rose. All hosted by Congleton’s infamous Drag Queen Fonda D. The event celebrated diversity and inclusion for LGBTQIA+ people.
The second ‘Community’ stage presented family shows such as Nick Barnes’ magic show, plus local talent, poems and speeches from members of the LGBTQIA+ community, along with cultural performances. There was also a food village, outdoor bars and shopping, plus much much more…
The After Hours evening event (ticketed, 18+) in Congleton Town Hall, featured headliner Madonna tribute Laura King and drag queens Marie La Rae and Stella Black.
We thank the people of Congleton for coming to join in to share this celebration.
