Birmingham Pride Community Event returns on Friday, September 23

Catherine Muxworthy June 22, 2022

Launched in 2021, the Big Free Community Event is part of Birmingham Pride, and this year it will return for a second time.

The event will be held at the Smithfield site, which is the main site for the full weekend line-up, including Beck Hill and Steps. The community event will be held on Friday, September 23, ahead of the other Pride events across the Saturday and Sunday.

The event will include a candlelit vigil, keynote speakers, the Secret Symphony presents DIVA, community stalls and food stalls. Plus, there will be performances, live music, and other LGBTQ+ talent yet to be announced.

Although the event is free, you will need to apply for tickets online to secure your place as tickets are limited and will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
