Practical Information

There is a First Aid tent in the arena, staffed with medical professionals, including doctors, nurses and paramedics, who can provide confidential consultations at any time throughout the duration of the festival.

Located next to the First Aid Tent, TTK Welfare will be on hand for wellbeing advice and support. Whether you’re feeling in distress, have over indulged or simply want a place to chill out, away from the crowds, our Welfare Tent is a safe haven for festival attendees. They can also advise on issues including drug and alcohol abuse, safe sex, addiction, exhaustion & domestic issues.

Sensory Calm Space
Diverse UK are joining us this year with their Sensory Calm Space. They aim to provide a safe, low-level stimulation and recalibration zone for those on the Autistic Spectrum or for those who need a place to have a moment of calm, rather than having to leave the festival. The tent will be located next to medics & welfare.

Water points are located at each toilet block for you to fill your reusable bottles or cups and free drinking water is available across all the festival bars. Bristol water will also be located near the main stage screen for free cold filtered water.

Lost Property
Please hand any lost property into the Info Tent next to the main gate, If you lose anything report it here too it, we get lots handed in! After Pride Day you can email info@bristolpride.co.uk to see if we have your lost property. Lost property will be kept for 2 months before being donated to charity.

Lost Kids
Should you lose them, or they lose you, our lost kids’ team are on hand and based at the welfare tent. Report your lost child to any steward or official immediately and follow their advice.
