It will be the centrepiece of a week-long programme of activities and attractions which included art exhibitions, screenings, theatre and parties.

The celebrations continue this evening with a Cockles and Muscles after-party at Dreamland with DJs, drag queens and cabaret acts.

Tomorrow revellers can enjoy a barbecue and outdoor entertainment at the Harbour Arm’s Lighthouse Bar from noon to 5pm.
