Birmingham Pride Community Event to return in May

Catherine Muxworthy March 17, 2023

The Birmingham Pride Community event will be returning for its third year in 2023, offering a free event to the local community. Held on the Friday, May 26, the Big Free Community Event will feature key note speakers, a candle-lit vigil, street food, community stalls, LGBTQ+ artists, and live music. Last year, the event saw performances from the likes of Fatt Butcher, Asifa Lahore, Crip Ladywood, Black Peppa, and more.

This year, the event will be held, not at the Smithfield site as it has been in the past two years, but instead in the heart of the city’s Pride Village on Hurst Street.

Birmingham Pride’s community event will be held from 6pm on the evening before the festival and Pride Parade, which will be held from Saturday, May 27 to Sunday, May 28.

Tickets are, once again, free, however, they are limited. Tickets can be booked online now.
