Join in this most colourful of parades at Bristol Pride


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, where past acts have included Sophie Ellis Bextor, Blue and Little Boots. Those feeling brave should head down to the Cabaret Stage for the usually risqué (and sometimes unpredictable) acts, or watch a drag retelling of Shakespeare’s Richard III. Warning: expect plenty of sequins and swear words.

If you want to explore Bristol’s gay culture, it’s worth signing up for one of the historical tours with author, Andrew Foyle. Starting from the Old Market Tavern, you’ll find yourself in hysterics as he recounts the antics of the outrageous and downright deviant individuals behind the town’s LGBT history.
