📆 25-28 August 2017
Manchester’s annual LGBT celebration has announced more details about its music festival and parade.
Headliners include Clean Bandit, Faithless (DJ set), former Spice Girl Melanie C, Pixie Lott and Example.
The theme for the weekend is ‘Class of 2017’ bringing a graduation feel to the parade. The theme centres on the crucial role education can play in the fight to end the inequalities and injustices still faced by LGBT people around the world.
The culmination of The Manchester Pride Festival is The Vigil in which Sackville Gardens is turned into a sea of flickering candles as Manchester takes a minute to remember those we’ve lost to the HIV virus and join together to combat the epidemic worldwide.
