Pride 2019: 1-14 July | Pride Day: Sat 13 July

Festival Alcohol & Drugs Policy


NO GLASS IS ALLOWED ON SITE | NO WRISTBAND NO CARRY ON – You need a wristband to bring alcohol onsite


You will only be able to bring alcohol onsite with a Pride Supporter Wristband (£5 for Day or £15 Day+Night or £35 Super Supporter) this is to adhere to licence restrictions and age checks. Alcohol Restrictions still apply.

Please support Pride by buying your alcohol from the bars onsite! There are 3 bars onsite this year and pints are cheaper than most local bars and we are a lot cheaper than commercial festivals and discounted for those with the Pride Supporter Wristband

All the money goes back into the festival and supports our charity work so please support Pride, a community interest company, by getting your drinks from us rather than a retailer that is not supporting the event to happen.

Please adhere to our policies for your own benefit or we risk having to stop all alcohol being brought onsite altogether.

Due to the large volume of glass brought onsite and rogue traders we will be strictly enforcing our alcohol policy this year with bag searches. Sale of any alcoholic items, except from licensed bars is prohibited.

ALL Glass will be confiscated at bag checkpoint or by security sweeps onsite – please just don’t bring it

Bristol Pride 2017 Alcohol Policy
To comply with licence restrictions and approval our alcohol policy is
1l (Tetra Pack) of Wine or
4x Cans or
6x Cans of spirit and mixer
NO WRISTBAND NO CARRY ON – You need a Pride supporter wristband to bring alcohol onsite.

There is no restriction on soft drinks but these must be sealed and will be checked.

We do not want to ban alcohol being brought onto the site but please work with us and adhere to the policy or we may have no choice but to ban you bringing your own alcohol completely to comply with police and council regulations.

We will operate ID25 system, if you are lucky enough to look younger than you are please ensure you have I.D with you.

Please drink responsibly, in hot weather please drink plenty of water and help us by bringing it with you or bring your own reusable bottle to top up at our ‘green’ filling station.


We have a zero tolerance to dealing in or use of drugs and normal enforcement laws are applicable, will be followed and the police will be called. ‘Legal’ highs are also not permitted onsite, anyone found to be using ‘legal’ highs will be asked to move on. Supplying legal highs such a NOS gas IS ILLEGAL. Anyone with NOS on them it will be assumed you intend to supply.

This policy may be updated and could be subject to change on licence restrictions.
