A family-themed event will be held this weekend to celebrate the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in Hertfordshire.

HertsPride 2014 will host the We Are Family event at Cassiobury Park, Watford from 11am on Saturday.

The event aims to end discrimination towards the LGBT community in Hertfordshire, and will be the second event of its kind held in the county.

Food and entertainment will be on offer throughout the day, with a number of stages around the park giving visitors the opportunity to view a variety of local bands, dance troupes and solo performances.

Information and services to support the LGBT community, including advice on helping to reduce health inequalities, will also be available.

The main event will be free, but wristbands must be purchased for the cabaret marquee, VIP and licensed bar areas.
