Manchester Pride – when and where is it?

For years Manchester Pride has been held in the gay village, but this can no longer continue as Pride has outgrown this area with new property developments reducing the space available.

One of the organisers also explained that new terms and conditions for the spaces used for the main stage mean nothing could be confirmed until 3 months before the event – this being a huge risk has meant that to avoid disappointment, Manchester Pride took on a new form!

The main stage this is held in a venue a short walk from the gay village. This venue has been used in the past for the Warehouse Project and Manchester International Festival so you expect good things! 

Previously called the Big Weekend, the main stage part of Manchester Pride will now be called Manchester Pride Live.

There will still be focus around the Gay Village, namely Canal Street and the surrounding streets, where you will find all the bars, clubs and parks to enjoy.
