Rain fails to dampen Pride’s spirits - picture gallery

HEAVY rain forced an early end to Doncaster Pride despite a vibrant and colourful parade and some of the event’s most positive feedback ever.

More than 300 people took part in the town centre Walk of Unity to the Keepmoat Stadium where thousands descended to enjoy the cabaret stages, music tents and family stalls.

And despite the heavens opening in the evening and The Only Way Is Essex star Jessica Wright having also cancelling her headline performance, the downpours failed to dampen the spirits of the Pride-goers as they headed straight to the Market Place for the aftershow at Crystals pub.
