They said: “We are delighted to meet again on Saturday for a parade through the city center.

“It’s going to be quite similar and low-key, like our 2019 event, due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we’re happy to meet again.

“The plan is to meet at St John’s Cemetery at 1pm before leaving at 1.15pm for a walk through the town center before returning to St John’s Cemetery for a small gathering.

“Our route includes Vicarage Walk and Middle Street.”

JK Doran added: “A key theme this year is to come together and stand up for and celebrate the rights of the LGBT + community.

“That’s why we’re also having a sign making workshop at Yeovil Art Space on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.”

Anyone wishing to attend the event is kindly requested to register on Eventbrite here –

An online Crowdfunder has also been set up to help cover the costs of the event.
