Bristol Pride 2022

Pride Day: Sat 9 July

Stages & Festival Areas

We have so many festival stages and areas on Pride Day, showcasing the great diversity of our scene, events and performances. You’ll also find great ways to chill out or get involved in some really fun activities. Check out all the info below and work out how you can fit it all in!

Main Stage

We're thrilled that exciting local and international artists come to Pride to show their support, whilst we showcase incredible talent from LGBT+ artists and allies.

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.

New Stage

We're excited about the return of our newest stage. Introduced in 2019, we'll be showcasing some incredible fresh talent.

Dance Performance stage

Our exciting Dance Performance Stage brings you everything from Street Dance, Theatre Dance to Zumba – we’ve got something for everyone young and old. There’ll be performances and workshops throughout the day to get you in the festival spirit.

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.

Youth Area

The Pride Day Youth area is a chance for young people (under 25) to come together and celebrate pride. This alcohol-free, relaxed space will give you the opportunity to be who you want to be or to express who you might want to be in a safe and supportive environment.

Silent Disco

Sing like no one is listening! Get your headsets on and lose yourself in a specially programmed Silent Disco. With music ranging from pop bangers to headbangers, there will be something for everyone.
