Fun Things to Do for London Pride

Pride month is almost upon us, so we’ve put together some of the best activities across the capital to celebrate this June.

Pride month is almost upon us, and celebrations are hotting up in the UK’s capital. As you might expect, there’s plenty to get involved with to celebrate and support the LGBTIQA+ community. But where to start? Don’t worry – we’ve combed through the highlights and have some fantastic activities to suggest for your London Pride 2024!


Swingers is celebrating Pride month in style this June! Guests can enjoy specialty cocktails crafted by bartenders from the LGBTIQA+ community. Why not try a Ginger Spice (Ciroc Limonata Vodka, creme d’abricot, orange bitters, elderflower cordial, ginger beer, tabasco) or a Beyond the Rainbow (Ciroc Red Berry Vodka, Chambord, red wine, coconut syrup, cranberry juice, natural egg white substitute)?

For every cocktail purchased, we’ll donate to Not a Phase, a trans-led grassroots charity dedicated to uplifting the lives of trans+ adults through awareness campaigns, social projects, and funding trans+-led initiatives.

Enjoy two Pride Cocktails for £18 during our Happy Hour, available every Tuesday to Friday before 7pm throughout June.

Prepare for your cheeks to hurt from laughter at the London LGBTQ+ New Comedian of the Year Competition. Presented by queer comedy club Comedy Bloomers, this showcase spans various dates between March and June, culminating in the final on the 11th June at the Clapham Grand. Enjoy exclusive shows and cutting-edge works in progress from a brilliant lineup of LGBTIQA+ comedians. With a diverse range of comedic styles on the roster, there’s something to tickle everyone’s funny bone! Look out for up-and-coming comedians with real star power, including Kuan Wen, Charlie George, James Barr, Sue Gives a F*Ck, and Matthew Ali.

When: March – June
Where: Various venues across London
More info: Pride’s Got Talent

Move over, ITV. This Pride, Londoners can celebrate the next generation of incredible LGBTIQA+ performers at Pride’s Got Talent. For weeks leading up to Pride Month, heats have been held to evaluate a diverse range of music, cabaret, drag and comedy acts. After multiple rounds of competition, the grand final will take place on 27th June at Adelphi Theatre! The talent levels are as high as the stakes, with the winner securing a headline slot on the Trafalgar Square stage during London’s Pride March, as well as a £1000 cash prize. It’s going to be a nailbiter – we can’t wait to see who wins!


When: 21st June 2024
Where: London Art Bar
More info: Screening of Pride

Join in for a special screening of this iconic 2014 film at the London Art Bar in Holborn. Pride is inspired by the moving story of the 1984 British miners’ strike and the unexpected support they received from gay and lesbian advocates. Not only can you sit back and enjoy the film, you’ll be making a charitable contribution at the same time – this event will raise funds for the Albert Kennedy Trust, which supports homeless LGBTIQA+ youth. The London Art Bar is conveniently located just a four-minute walk from Holborn Station, so this amazing event is super easy to get to. Don’t forget to bring the popcorn!


London Annual Pride March

When: 29 June 2024
Where: Starts in Hyde Park Corner
More info: Pride in London

This Pride March is where it all began back in 1972. It’s now one of the UK’s biggest and most diverse LGBTIQA+ celebrations, and is set to be one heck of a party. This year, there will be over 500 groups and 30,000+ participants – enough to fill The Oval stadium! While applications to join the parade are now closed, there’s still space for enthusiastic spectators to cheer the marchers on. For a front-row experience, Grandstand tickets are available, ensuring a close-up view of the parade (and actual seats, useful for accessibility purposes). There are also multiple stages set up along the route for entertainment and commentary, so don’t miss these if you’re following along! Families can also find dedicated areas to stand, and those seeking a quieter pride experience can retreat to quiet zones. In the inclusive spirit of Pride, there really is something for everyone!


When: 29th June 2024
Where: Greenwich Pier (Cutty Sark)
More info: Pride LGBTIQA+ Summer Boat Party

Calling all party people – get ready to embrace summer and let loose at this summer boat party at Greenwich Pier! This daytime extravaganza has it all, including live drag acts, music, and (hopefully) plenty of sunshine. Dress code: dress to impress! Dance moves: anything goes! For two glorious hours, boogie on down the Thames to Westminster Pier to the very best 80s anthems, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Pride Boat Party. This 18+ event is the perfect way to bid farewell to Pride 2024. See you on the dance floor!
