Swindon & Wiltshire Pride have worked hard to make the event even more accessible this year a Mobiloo (pop-up Changing Places Facility) will be available with a hoist, adult-sized changing bench and all else you’d expect to find in a fully accessible toilet.

There will also be sign language interpreters for the main stage sponsored by Arval helping make Pride accessible.
