Brighton Pride 2021 has been cancelled for this year. The full statement from Brighton Pride is below:

We are heartbroken to have to announce the cancellation of Brighton & Hove Pride’s Community Parade, the Pride Village Party and Pride Festival on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th August 2021.

We know the need for community has never been stronger and Brighton & Hove Pride is one of Europe’s biggest Pride Festivals attracting thousands of people from across the UK to attend multiple events across the city including the Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade.

Delivering Pride requires an all year-round planning cycle working closely with our partner agencies and, while the vaccine rollout continues to be successful, the many uncertainties that need to be resolved to safely deliver mass gatherings and the complexities of organising Pride in our City are impossible to achieve in the time we have, so based on the best information available to us at this time we are heartbroken to have to cancel for a second year. We cannot risk the health and safety of Pride visitors, residents and the hundreds of staff and volunteers that help deliver Pride.

Expect Brighton Pride to be back with a bang in 2022. Expect an even bigger festival in 2022 after Mariah Carey’s performance was cancelled in 2020 because of the coronavirus and 2021’s Brighton Pride had to be cancelled because of the uncertainty surrounding large outdoor evets.

Brighton Pride has been a very popular gay Pride event in the UK since 1991. Brighton & Hove Pride is an exceptionally friendly event and one of Brighton’s most popular weekends, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the UK and beyond. It’s one of the UK’s biggest and best Pride events.

The spectacular parade usually begins at Hove Lawns at 11:00 and continues through the town towards Preston Park. Expect plenty of colourful costumes, performances from top artists and a whole host of club nights. This year Preston Park will include Cabaret Tents, the BAME stage, dance tents, Queer Town and a host of new, diverse and immersive experiences.

With past headliners including Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue and Grace Jones, Brighton Pride has established itself as one of the world’s biggest and best gay Pride events. Tickets do sell out so best to book early. Those who had tickets for 2021 can roll their tickets to 2022.
