Pride Day and Parade March will not be able to go ahead in July due to Covid-19 and will be postponed to later this year, it will again focus on bringing people back together when it is safe to do so.
Eve Russell, Festival Director said;
“We’re so sad to announce that we have taken the decision to postpone the Parade March and our planned Pride Day Gathering on 10th July, at such short notice.
“Following the government announcement to delay the roadmap, we have met with Public Health, Bristol City Council and Avon & Somerset Police to discuss the feasibility of all parts of these events. We had robustly planned all our events to ensure they could go ahead had the rules not been relaxed, but sadly COVID-19 cases are rising significantly in Bristol, particularly among young people, and it just won’t be possible to deliver the day in a way that is safe at this time.
“While the majority of our programmed events are able to go ahead, the Pride Dog Show on 3rd July will also be postponed and as nightclubs will not be permitted to reopen, the Official After-Party on 10th July will, unfortunately, be cancelled.
