Chester Pride lives up to its name as organisers hail 'fantastic' day
The heavens may have opened but there was no shortage of rainbows as Chester Pride returned for its fourth year on Saturday (October 1).
Around 6,000 people braved the elements and descended on the city for the annual celebration of the LGBT community, which was hailed by organisers as ‘fantastic’ and ‘heartwarming’.
The traditional parade, which comprised local businesses, charities and public sector organisations, kicked things off with a riot of colour as revellers dressed to impress, as per the golden rule of taking part in the march – the more colourful, the better.
