Isle of Wight Pride

Three days of entertainment: 18-20 August 2023 Ryde, Isle of Wight

As a sponsor since 2017, Hovertravel promotes Isle of Wight Pride and is always looking to see how it can help attract an audience from beyond the Island.

Loretta Lale, head of commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “Part of Pride is spreading awareness and making events attractive to all, so by operating additional flights we are giving people the opportunity to enjoy more time at Isle of Wight Pride and still enjoy the fastest way home at the end of their evening.”

“Hovertravel is a champion for diversity and inclusivity so we are delighted to see the return of Isle of Wight Pride this year and alongside our commercial sponsorship, we are demonstrating that we can support the local community with extra, later hovercraft flights for high profile events on either side of the Solent.”

Island ferry company, Red Funnel, is sponsoring the main stage and arena at this year’s event. If you are travelling to the island via Southampton check out their summer offers –
