If Pride season means more to you than a token gesture then we want to work with you.
We love designing and building the coolest floats and that’s why our floats are the ones that people love and the ones that get the love on social media.
We’ve created a specific division just for floats and parade vehicles. We feel your float should reflect your brand values and really engage the people on board and the public lining the streets.
A well-designed float can do wonders for a company and really show that you care. With a little bit of imagination and a relatively small budget you can do something that will be loved by all. And we want to be part of that too.
Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you. A common side-effect is having a hard time to get your employees and colleagues to shut up after. They are NEVER going to stop talking about your next parade experience.
Integrated LED walls for content, an onboard generator to power events, space for DJ decks and speakers… and a lot more.
Pride in London 2022 was bigger and better than ever before. After two years with no Pride this year came back with a massive bang! For The Clear Idea it was huge too as we pushed the envelope on many fronts from the sheer quantity of floats we designed in the parade to the technical elements. 2022 also saw a huge drive on the sustainability front with a focus on using the most environmentally friendly materials and vehicles.
On the following pages you will see a selection of the floats we have available & a description of how we can help. If you haven’t seen what you need, then get in touch anyway & we can create something unique just for you.
This low-level 13 metre float is perfect for groups wanting to house a large number of participants that are really looking to engage with the crowds lining the streets.
The extra-large truck bed means there’s loads of space for people, DJs, performers and all the paraphernalia needed for a big build. The perimeter can also be branded for a fully branded experience.
Compact features all the same elements as the regular Power Float but on a smaller vehicle to help keep costs down.

For clients that are looking for a float they can drive themselves this trailer float is a good solution. The float body is 6m in length so provides a great space for any float concept. It can be towed by a van or an electric vehicle / hybrid vehicle.
For some clients, Pride is such a special event they are looking for a fully bespoke float design service which goes above and beyond. Our specialist production department is able to take care of even the most demanding briefs. Our production team can custom design elements of your float so that we create a truly unique product for you.
For many clients, the technical element of the float is a step into the unknown and can me a cause of worry. Typical questions we receive include, what sound system do we need and is it going to be loud enough to drown out the floats around us (this is basically the #1 request we get every year!)? What is the right generator to power the sound system and other electric elements?
Our in-house technical department can take care of all of these things including the installation and deinstallation of the AV equipment at the end of the show. Because we work closely with the organisers of the event, we also make sure your equipment meets the parade guidelines and you have all the required safety certification for your application.
During our involvement with Pride and other parades across the country we have strived each year to make sure our floats are the most environmentally friendly possible.
Our balloon supplier is a member of NABAS (The National Association of Balloon Artists and Suppliers) and our balloon garlands are 100% biodegradable and made from sustainable natural rubber (no plastic content).
We have floats that can be pulled by electric hybrid vehicles and all our vehicles are modern and meet all ULEZ regulations across the country.
Nobody likes a Big Head but if we don’t tell you every year our floats consistently win the award for ‘best float in parade’ then who will?!
We love to push the boundaries the result of which creates a huge bang online as well as on the street.
