Our friends at Marsh are also once again opening up their carpark to provide parking for Pride go-ers on Norwich Pride Day – Saturday 27th July. They suggest a minimum donation of £4 for all-day parking but every penny raised goes to keeping Norwich Pride free and accessible for all, so please give what you can. Marsh is just off the St Stephen’s Roundabout and a short distance from Chapelfield Gardens.
