Barry Pride will take place, from 12pm to 6pm on Saturday, 21.

Spectrum Collections, who are originally from Barry and known for their colourful make-up brushes, are sponsoring the event, which will host community stalls, performers, music, speakers, entertainment, food and drink.

Barry Pride has also received support from the Vale council’s new event grant which is vital to help bring a variety of first time events to the town.

There will be a window display competition for businesses across Barry with all invited to host an event throughout the day which will be included on a central map.

Sponsors Spectrum Collections said: "We are so happy to sponsor Barry Pride as local business women but most importantly as part of the local community.

"We've lived in Barry our whole lives and we love the town because of the general warmth of the people who live here too, it's a wonderful place to live and start a business.

"We want to share the feeling of support we had as a start-up and give back to the community through a celebration of love and mutual respect for all Barry residents.

"Barry's first Pride festival feels like an amazing opportunity to do so and we are very excited to celebrate with everyone."
