Find out how business and organisations can get involved and support Bristol Pride 2021.
Bristol Pride is a not for profit charity and it’s always great to hear from organisations that want to support Pride to happen.
We don’t get any core funding to put Pride on so we have to raise all the money for the festival ourselves and we couldn’t do it without your support.
If you are interested in ways to support Pride have a look at one of the options below or get in touch to discuss your idea.
Our 2021 Marketing Pack is now available, from Sponsorship, Brand Activation or Outreach you can reach thousands of people at Pride.
Pride 2019 saw over 40,000 people visiting Pride Day, 18,000 people on the parade and a packed 2 week-long festival of events across Bristol including sell-out theatre and comedy nights and our Film Festival at Watershed.
Our website had an incredible 538,000 page views last year, with over 135,000 unique users. Our Programme had 32,000 online reads with 15,000 copies printed across the South West, London, Brighton, Cardiff and further.
As well as Lead Partnership including our VIP area we also offer Festival Partnership, Supporter Tier and bespoke options. In fact, we have many ways to market your brand and understand that organisations have different needs. Opportunities exist for sponsoring Pride Week events, recruitment packages, marketing consultancy & year-round partnerships with Pride.
