Bristol Pride 2022

Two weeks of events taking place in June & July and a return to The Bristol Downs in 2022!

We’re thrilled to confirm that the annual event will return again this year in its original format after 2021 saw it, like many others, have to adapt to restrictions in place at the time.

Our return will span two weeks in Bristol from Saturday 25th June – Sunday 10th July 2022.

During this time, the festival’s exciting programme of events will take place in venues across Bristol bringing the city alive with Pride as we also help to support one of the hardest-hit sectors, especially venues that are serving the LGBT+ community. 


Pride Day will take place on Saturday 9th July and after a two-year absence, will return to The Downs. The event will feature multiple stages and will attract some of the biggest names in live music and entertainment, plus showcase new and emerging talent including performances from local artists and community groups. The line-up will be released over the coming months. Pride Day will also see a welcome return of the Pride Big Top, Youth Area, Family Zone and Community Area.


The LGBT+ community and its allies have spent so much time apart, organisers are thrilled to be able to put on events that will showcase the community and allow people to come together, to be proud, to protest and celebrate.


Eve Russell, Festival Director, said:
“We are so excited to be working on delivering this year’s festival in person again and to be able to bring everyone back together to celebrate. The Pride Parade March will also make a physical return this year, louder and prouder than ever as we mark the 50th anniversary of the first pride march in the UK.  The march is an integral part of what pride is and after two years of quiet streets, we’re excited to be filling the city with colour. It is a chance to be visible and, importantly, it serves as a reminder that the LGBT+ community continues to fight for equality.”


We’re encouraging attendees to purchase a Supporter Wristband. Priced from £7, they enable future events like Pride Day to remain accessible to those, who for socio-economic reasons, may not be able to afford to attend an exclusively ticketed event. Wristbands are on sale now and include various offers including free bus travel on Pride Day, within the Bristol Zone, with First Bus and discounts at onsite bars.  

Advance purchase of wristbands will speed up entry to the festival site,  and the provision of contact details will allow us to advise of any changes to the entry policy due to covid restrictions.
