Wolverhampton Pride to return “bigger and better than ever” in 2023

Catherine Muxworthy February 8, 2023

After a four-year absence, Wolverhampton Pride is returning to the city “bigger and better than ever” on Saturday, June 10 from 12 – 10pm in School Street; the heart of the city’s LGBTQ+ community.

Wolverhampton Pride has, for the last 12 months, been consulting with members of the LGBTQ+ community to find out what Pride means to them. Organisers of the event have incorporated this feedback in the planning, format and timing of this year’s event.

They say: “We have proudly been working with Enjoy Wolverhampton Business Improvement District, Gorgeous Nightclub, Gorgeous Radio, Wolverhampton LGBT and X2Y.”

Those attending Wolverhampton Pride 2023 can expect a parade, main stage with live music, drag artists and DJs, food, bars, community stalls, face painting, a quiet area and more.

The organisers added: “Wolverhampton Pride is a celebration of our city’s LGBTQ+ community and is open to everyone to come and support LGBTQ+ inclusion together.”

The first release of tickets for Wolverhampton Pride are available online now from EventBrite – prices are £3 for adults and £1.50 for concessions (12-17, over 65s, disabled people and their carer), while under 12s go free.

More details regarding the line-up and the parade route will be announced soon via the Wolverhampton Pride website and on their Facebook page.
