Entry to Pride Day is by donation and everyone will be asked for £3 on entry to fundraise for the event and our year round activity and work. We do not get funding to make Pride happen. We could not continue without your support.
We have introduced optional Supporter Wristbands. Wristbands offer a visible identifier of a donation towards Pride (so you don’t keep being asked) and also offer fantastic rewards and discounts at Pride! This includes:
– Money off or free items from Pride Day food stalls
– Free bus travel on Pride Day with First Bus (Bristol Inner Zone)
– Discounted £1 journeys with Bristol Ferry Boats
– Those without a wristband will be charged an additional 50p for drinks at the bars.
– Allowed to bring own alcohol onsite, subject to restrictions.
Pride are also working with local businesses in Bristol to provide those with the supporter wristband even more discounts across Bristol. Day+Night wristband includes day discounts offers and free entry to 3 Pride afterparties: The official afterparty at the O2 Academy, The Queenshilling and Hush @ Basement45.
Pride costs a lot of money, before we even think about artists payments we have to raise the money to pay for the fees and licence to use the site and then for the stages, marquees, security, fencing, toilets, first aid and even tables and chairs!
Please note Pride Day+Night and Super Supporter tickets afterparties are for those over 18 years of age, to comply with the venue licence laws, and ID will be checked. We are hoping to work with some partners to create an event for under 18s.
All tickets are subject to a booking fee of which we are not responsible for nor do we get this money. However we do get a small % back from the Bristol Ticket Shop.
We have an alcohol policy which will be strictly enforced to comply with our licence. You will need a supporter wristband to be able to bring alcohol onsite – no wristband, no carry on.
Please note all profit from the bars goes directly to Pride and helps keep Pride Day free.
Bristol Pride is a registered charity run by volunteers. We do not get the funding that other Pride festivals of similar size and it makes our job very hard but we passionately believe in keeping Pride an open access event so that no one is excluded from Pride. Pride is our chance to engage each other and wider communities and is your chance to celebrate who you are. You shouldn’t be forced to pay just for being gay but we do need your support.
Please support Pride and buy in advance!
As well as fundraising for us you will also be supporting our chosen charity, this year that is the Russian LGBT Network. Pride also works throughout the year with visits to schools, businesses (and who ever will have us) to combat and challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, plus our work to combat hate crime and your donations help fundraising.
