Clacton Town Hall will glow in rainbow-coloured lights throughout next week to coincide with the town’s first ever Pride festival.

The offices of Tendring District Council in Station Road, Clacton, will be lit up from Monday to Sunday to mark the LGBTQ celebration.

The first Clacton Pride festival was due to be a street party-style event, but will instead be held virtually due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
