WE NEED YOU!

We are proud to be different and keep Pride Day a donation entry event so that no LGBT+ person is excluded from attending Pride just because they can’t afford it.
However Pride costs so much money to put on so we need your help. Everyone will be asked for a £3 donation on Pride Day, this is the minimum we need from everyone who attends to keep Pride going, on average we get about 50p per person.
BUT you can get a Pride Supporter Wristband for fantastic discounts such as money of at the bars and free bus travel. Just £5 for the day or £15 for a fabric day+night wristband that includes entry to 3 afterparties.
This year we’re using TIKK, a local secure and ethical company. They’re also sponsoring our Cabaret Stage this year so are investing back into the Festival as well as supporting the scanning of tickets on Pride Day. Scanning will help speed up your entry on Pride Day but if you can please exchange your eTickets in advance. We’ll publish details of our 2018 hub shortly.
