Pride_BristolTaking place on Saturday 9th July, Pride Day will feature a bustling local food and market zone, onsite bars, community area for services and groups, a performance hub, cabaret stage and an expanded family area with bouncy castle, lawn games and kite making workshops, all for a £3 suggested donation.

Over 40 acts will be performing in Castle Park across 3 stages with main stage acts including Little Boots, Rozalla, Lucy Spraggan and loads more.

Pride is donation entry, but organisers are calling on everyone who can to get a £5 supporter wristband to help support the event. Wristbands offer discounts onsite including food and the bars, priority re-entry when at capacity and free travel on Pride Day with First Bus. Joint evening tickets are available for £15, all sales help to keep the event running each year which doesn’t receive any other funding.

Pride Night will see a takeover at the O2 Academy for the official Pride after party. Entry is £11 on the door but if you have the combined day and night ticket you can get into all the different supporting clubs in the evening for free.

Pride ‘Week’ runs from the 3 – 12 July and uses venues across Bristol to showcase the LGBT community and use the arts to champion equality, tackle community issues and develop a platform to support local talent.
