We're back and after 2 years away we're pulling out all the stops.

We're thrilled to bring you incredible local and international artists to celebrate with us at Pride as well as our change to showcase incredible talent from LGBT+ artists and allies.

This year we're bringing our biggest ever line-up across the festival and we are so excited to have global icon Carly Rae Jepsen headline Main Stage 2022.

Cabaret Stage

The Bristol Pride Cabaret Stage is hailed as one of the best in the country and we’re very lucky to attract some of the best performers, including stars from Rupaul's Drag Race UK and US.

Expect sequins, heels and singing (sorry!). Flamboyant, at times risqué (you’ve been warned) and always unpredictable.

Get Qweird Stage

We are excited to team up with party makers The House Of Savalon to curate our new Get Qweird stage at Bristol Pride this year.

You can expect a splash of diversity as queer artists take to the stage showcasing musicians, high energy musical numbers, storytelling, poetry, dance, circus, puppetry, and drag; a true variety show celebrating Bristol live art in all its Qweirdly wonderful glory!

Pride Circus Tent

We team up with the incredible Bassline Circus for a programme of diverse performances from outstanding artists within and around the LGBTQ+ Community.

The Circus Bigtop has always been a symbol to represent a place of acceptance for all people. A place to promote self-affirmation, dignity, equal rights, increase visibility and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Come and experience real stories being told through Circus, Dance, Spoken Word and Music.

Family Area

Celebrate Pride with the whole family. A great space to relax and celebrate while enjoying the festival atmosphere.

Socialise with other LGBT+ parents, and parents of LGBT+ children, or simply to show the younger generation how wonderfully diverse life is and ensure they are the ones that may bring around the changes for true equality.
