This weekend saw the largest street gathering in Britain in the form of Pride London.
Our world renowned design team, in particular Andy Aitken, designed the Home Office float for the event as well as being offical creative partners for Pride London.
Saturday saw over a million people flock to the streets of London on the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in America. Gay pride has become one of the biggest and most colourful dates in the public calender and, by all accounts, 2009 was the best year yet.The Home Office float was done in the theme of Shakespeare bedecked with ivy, a fountain and some rather loudly dressed individuals. The float was adorned with a banner saying
‘This above all: to thine own self be true’
a very apt saying for the occasion.
The festival started at Baker Street and concluded in Soho having passed through Trafalgar Square and Oxford Street. The route was also lined with stalls, bars and live music with a main stage in Trafalgar Square.
Anyway a great weekend was had by all Big Cats and pride goers, take a look at some of our pictures from the event. Pride London
