Bury Pride will be returning this year as organisers promise the event will be “bigger and better than ever.”

The streets of Bury will come alive with colour, music, and celebration as the annual event returns on Saturday, June 1.

Organisers say that this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Bury Pride is the borough’s main celebration of the LGBTQ+ community and the event will bring diversity and inclusivity that defines our community.

With a wide array of activities, performances and entertainment planned, the community is guaranteed a day filled with fun, inspiration, and a sense of belonging.

The Pride event this year will be held entirely on Knowsley Street located outside of the Town Hall where stall holders, food and drink vendors and our main stage of entertainment acts will perform all day from 10.30am onwards.

The Walking Rainbow Parade will wind through the heart of Bury from 1pm with support from local community organisations and local businesses coming together joining in to show their support.

Following the parade, the main stage will host a variety of live performances for everyone to enjoy.

David Murphy, the Bury Pride event organiser said: “We are thrilled to be hosting Bury Pride again this year, we have taken the feedback from many of those who came along last year and have decided that this year, due to the continued growth and support we would host the entire event outside, and we’re excited to welcome everyone to join us for a day of celebration, reflection and entertainment”

Bury Pride is easily accessible by public transport, with Bury Interchange just a short walk from the event site. For those driving, there are several car parks available in the town centre.
