After the success of 2023, we already can’t wait for next year’s celebration 


After the success of this year’s Manchester Pride, we already can’t wait to attend next year’s celebration. This year’s Gay Village Party was a picture of unparalleled diversity with 96% of performers being queer, and 51% being people of colour. The stages saw amazing performances from the likes of Brazilian drag artist Pabllo Vittar, global sensation Jake Shears, and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK winner, Danny Beard. 

Mark Fletcher, CEO of Manchester Pride Festival, said: “From the immensely attended Parade to the vibrancy of the Gay Village Party and the solemnity of the Candlelit Vigil, it’s been an honour to witness such a phenomenal outpouring of love and support.”

So if you’re already feeling like you want to go back, don’t worry! There are “first release” weekend tickets for next year’s Gay Village Party ready for buy now. Secure your tickets early for the best prices, exclusively at
