Take in some drag queen cabaret or chill out to some pumping tunes; whatever you decide to do at Bristol Pride, it won’t be boring.
It’s not really surprising that Bristol Pride has been dubbed the South West’s most colourful parade; during this annual festival, the town erupts with characters as flamboyant as their costumes. The hub of it all is the Main Stage, which will feature Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Mel C and Sonique this year. Those feeling brave should head down to the Cabaret Stage for the usually risqué (and sometimes unpredictable) acts, or watch a performance as part of the Bristol Pride Theatre Night.
The centrepiece of the whole festival is the Pride Parade March, held on 13 July (designated as Bristol’s Pride Day 2019). Colourful flags, outfits and people meet in the streets of Bristol and march through the city centre; a bright spectacle that is always a highlight of Bristol’s summer calendar.
Bristol’s Pride Festival takes place between 1-14 July; a full list of events can be found on the website.
