Stroud Pride returned to Bank Gardens on Saturday, celebrating inclusion and equality.

Performers including Stroud Red Band, Robynne Calvert and Up The Bug were joined by groups like Stroud Against Racism, Creative Sustainability and the LGBT+ Partnerships team.

Photographer Paul Nicholls was at the scene snapping these fantastic shots of the day.

In a statement on their Facebook page, Stroud Pride said: “Big thank you to everybody who came out to Stroud Pride today and enjoyed themselves despite the rather trying weather.

“You made this year's picnic an absolute roaring success. We love you all, and we'll see you soon.”
