About Bristol Pride Festival
Bristol Pride is an annual free festival held in the heart of Bristol to celebrate the LGBT communities. We believe Pride should remain a free and accessible event for all to attend, not just those that can afford it, to ensure we reach all of the community and promote social cohesion. We do this (and can only do this) by working with our sponsors and partners to help fund the festival, by asking for your kind donations and working long hours as unpaid volunteers. We don’t get funding so without your support we will have to make Pride a charging event so please get a supporter wristband if you can.
As Pride is free and we are a not-for-profit organisation we don’t make money (that’s not what Pride is about) and rely on a lot of goodwill from artists, performers and you. Your donations and support enable Pride to happen, support our year round work challenging homophobia in schools, prisons and whoever else will have us, and every year we support a charity or community group who have similar goals in the area, by giving them what we can.
