We have a big month ahead here in Bristol with some huge events and big celebrations! Take a look at what’s on offer this month ahead to help plan your visit to the big Bristol.
This year, Pride returns to Bristol and will be celebrated across a two-week span from Saturday 25 June – Monday 11 July. During the two weeks, their exciting programme of events will take place in venues across Bristol bringing the city alive with Pride. On Saturday 9th July, celebrate Pride Day, headlined by Carly Rae Jepsen on The Downs.
This year will also see the return of the Pride Parade March, louder and prouder than ever to mark the 50th anniversary of the first pride march in the UK. It is a chance to be visible and, importantly, it serves as a reminder that the LGBT+ community continues to fight for equality.
