The annual event, which seeks to raise awareness of the pagan faith and celebrate diversity in society, also saw animated Morris dancers entertain the masses with their rhythmic stepping and energetic choreography.

While the free pride event usually takes place in Nottingham, in a bid to encourage more to understand their faith the society, which was founded in 2009, brought their celebrations to the capital.

Hoping to change the public's perception of pagans, those taking part in the parade donned bright masquerade masks and showed paganism was simply about living 'green' and being in touch with the environment.

A statement on the society's website reads: 'As an organisation, Pagan Pride feels it's time to break the final taboo and be the public face of Paganism presenting a modern and realistic image of today's UK Pagan community with our vibrant open celebrations.'
