PARADE ROUTE

This year’s PrideFest parade will begin from outside Marks & Spencer on North End, Croydon Town Centre at 11:30am. The parade will last approximately 45 minutes, following the route via Church Street on the map below:

Croydon Pride is fully committed to making Croydon PrideFest as inclusive as possible for all, including considering the needs of people with limited mobility. The meeting point for the parade outside Marks & Spencer on North End is a fully accessible area with public benches available as needed while waiting for the start of the parade. The parade will go along North End to the George Street junction before turning right onto Church Street. This is part of the Tramlink route so paraders will need to be aware of the tram lines, especially if wearing narrow or high hells or using a chair with narrow tyres. Please take extra care along this part of the route to avoid being trapped in or tripping on the tracks.

The route we have had to adopt means that entry to Wandle Park will be via the footbridge on Waddon New Road. We will pause at Church Street tram stop to give a chance for anyone who may have trouble completing the parade to board a tram to Wandle Park tram stop before re-joining at the main stage in Wandle Park. For information on tram fares, please visit the Transport for London website.

If you would like to take part in the parade, please email the name of your group/organisation and number of paraders to info@croydonpride.org.uk.
