PRIDE celebrations will return to Darlington town centre in August.

The Darlington Pride Weekend was forced to celebrate virtually last year due to the coronavirus pandemic - but this year, plans have been revealed for three days of celebrations across the town.

Gay Pride in Darlington has historically been celebrated on the second Monday in August at town centre bars and pubs.

Organisers have now extended to create a three days filled with events, including outdoor live music on Blackwellgate.

The Market Square saw its first ever Day Time Pride event in 2019 involving live entertainment, information stalls and activities.
