Stevenage Day is set to return on Sunday, June 9 with an event that is "bigger and better than ever", according to the borough council.

Hertfordshire's largest free event will be held at King George V playing fields as usual, with an expected attendance of more than 30,000.

This year's theme will be celebrating Pride and Stevenage's LGBTQ+ community.

There will be a dedicated Pride area, complete with a music stage showcasing talented Pride performers.
