Tens of thousands of party revellers are set to descend on Birmingham Pride over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, with organisers announcing record-breaking advance tickets sales to date for the UK’s biggest two-day LGBTQ festival.

Birmingham Pride kicks off on Saturday 26 May with a Carnival Parade through the city centre. The parade, which sets off from Victoria Square at 12 noon, is this year taking the theme of ‘Be You’ with over 100 organisations taking part.

The Pride Festival, which takes place in Birmingham’s vibrant gay village, will feature headline artists on the HSBC UK Main Stage, including Rudimental, Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters, Beth Ditto, Stefflon Don, Gorgon City, plus retro acts like Howard Jones and Louise.

Pride Festival Director Lawrence Barton commented: “The entire Birmingham Pride team are absolutely buzzing about this year’s festival. It’s incredible to have achieved record ticket sales for an event that’s set to attract tens of thousands of people. We’ve got a fantastic diverse line-up this year so we’re certain it’s going to be an amazing weekend!”

The festival, which takes place on both Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May, last year attracted over 50,000 party-loving revellers, also features a dance arena, cabaret marquee, funfair and women’s area, stalls,  in addition to a new Street Food court.

Tickets for the two-day festival, which is located in Birmingham’s Gay Village in the Southside area of the city, are available online at www.birminghampride.com
