Meadowhall is one of the most iconic buildings in Sheffield but it's going to look very different for the next couple of weeks.

The huge shopping centre will be lit up with the LGBT rainbow colours to celebrate the countdown to Pride.

Meadowhall's famous glazed roofs will be lit with the colours of the Pride flag every evening until Pride Sheffield which takes place on July 28.

The shopping centre has been lit up in these colours for the past two evenings and it's already gained plenty of admirers.

Sheffield Pride will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this month; held again at Endlcliffe Park from 1-7pm.

As in previous years, Pride will feature a full parade with both floats and walking entries.

The march will depart from Pear Street, next to Champs, at 12pm, travelling along Ecclesall Road and reaching Endcliffe Park for the start of the festival at 1pm.

The festival is free to attend, open to all and features live artists, a fully licensed bar, community area and a market place.

Pride organisers were forced to issue an apology in May after guidance was sent out describing the event as a 'celebration, not a protest'.
