Wolverhampton Pride, which will return to the city Saturday, June 10, has announced that National Express West Midlands has come on-board as an official sponsor for the event.

Ian Fegan, Director of Communications and Visitor Experience at City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “We are delighted that National Express West Midlands is on board for Wolverhampton Pride 2023.

“We want as many people as possible to enjoy this year’s event and be part of a day when we are all able to come together to celebrate, honour and show our support for the LGBT+ community. Now, with National Express West Midlands’ involvement, we can continue to strive to meet that objective for the city.”

On Saturday, June 3 – ahead of the main Pride event – National Express West Midlands’ Pride Bus will be parked up in Queen Square between 10am – 4pm. There will be music provided by Gorgeous Radio, and those visiting can ask questions about the event and even pick up some freebies, too.

Rachel James, UK HR Director at National Express, said: “We stand with our colleagues, our customers and our communities to promote inclusion and equality and we’re delighted to be working with Wolverhampton Pride’s ‘Festival For Everyone’ rooted right here in the heart of our community.

“I’d encourage everyone attending Wolverhampton Pride to hop on board with us. We’ve recently extended our £2 single ticket offer, so you can let us do the driving and save those pounds for the party.”

Wolverhampton Pride is organised by City of Wolverhampton Council in partnership with Enjoy Wolverhampton Business Improvement District, Wolverhampton Homes, Gorgeous Radio, X2Y, Wolverhampton LGBT+, the White Hart and Gorgeous Nightclub and Arena Theatre.

The event will feature a wide range of entertainment and activities, including the headline acts Scott Mills, Baga Chipz, The Fizz (formely Bucks Fizz), and local acts, as well as a Pride Parade, which will kick off celebrations for the day.

Tickets for Wolverhampton Pride are available to book online now.
