Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, organisers of the Northern Pride Festival, sponsored by Barclays, have made the decision to postpone their physical event and UK Pride Festival until 22 – 24 July 2022.

But there are huge plans in place for a virtual celebration on 24 July 2021 at https://www.facebook.com/northernprideuk/.

“We would love nothing more than to be in a position to celebrate Pride weekend with a huge festival this summer and postponing isn’t a decision we have taken lightly, but the safety of our event team, volunteers and community is our top priority,” said Ste Dunn, Director of Northern Pride. “We’ve channelled all of our energy into planning a really fantastic virtual programme, which will hopefully have something for everyone, and we’re delighted to have Barclays returning as sponsor for another year.”
