Liverpool Pride Tickets On Sale This Friday

Following the recent announcement that Liverpool Pride 2014 will now be a part ticketed event, organisers have confirmed that tickets for this year’s festival on Saturday 2 August will go on sale on Friday 23 May at 10am and with a limited number of early bird tickets on sale at just £5.

This year marks the 5th anniversary for Liverpool Pride, which was established in 2010 and takes place each year to coincide with the date of murdered gay teenager Michael Causer 6 years ago. The theme for this year’s event is Glam Fairy Tales, with those attending encouraged to come dressed in their most wild and wonderful interpretations of the theme.

The main ticketed sites have also been confirmed and Liverpool Pride will be returning with their popular festival sites, with the Waterfront Stage at the Pier Head, where attendees can soak up the music and atmosphere of the main stage area, alongside a number of bars, food outlets and market stalls, the Stanley Street Stage in Liverpool’s thriving Gay Quarter, which will showcase up and coming talent alongside entertainment provided by the bars and venues of Stanley Street and Dale Street and finally the Garlands and Gbar Stage in the Eberle Street area with guest DJ’s and a huge open area to dance the day and night away.

There is plenty of free family friendly activity too with the Liverpool Pride March through the city centre streets which kicks off the day in celebratory style at 12pm from the Plateau at St George’s Hall. Organisers encourage as many groups, organisations and individuals to participate, entertainment and activities are also planned for the muster at St Georges Hall. Also at the Pier Head is a free non-ticketed area which will contain a community stage, food concessions, cafe, market, information stalls, community activities and children’s entertainment.

As the main staged areas are now ticketed, Liverpool Pride 2014 promises the biggest and best year yet. Ticket prices have been kept to a minimum and cost as little as £5 for early bird bookers and the LGBT community is encouraged to book fast to get the best possible deal on tickets. The decision to ticket the event was not taken lightly, first and foremost it is to ensure the event will take place this year as well as safeguarding sustainability, the organisers aim to attract bigger name artists and performers, and also to improve safety and facilities at what will become the largest single-day Pride event in the UK.

Lucy Day, Chair of Liverpool Pride Charity said: “Liverpool Pride is a campaign for LGBT equality and to raise awareness of hate crime which many members of the LGBT community face on a daily basis. The free march through Liverpool City Centre will be followed up by a big celebration of LGBT culture in the heart of Liverpool and the LGBT community. Whilst increased costs and scarcity of funding have meant that we’re unable to offer a totally free event this year, we have ensured it is an affordable and sustainable event, if attenders book now they can get tickets as little as £5, we do have sections of the site that are totally free and we encourage everyone to take part and enjoy”.

Liverpool Pride are also looking for an army of volunteers who will be proud to assist the events team, over 200 people are needed in roles ranging from March Stewards, General Stewards, Bucket Shakers to name but a few.  If you are interested in taking part and helping this much-loved event run as smoothly as possible you can register online at or contact James Licence, Volunteer and Fundraising Co-ordinator at

The line-up of acts for Liverpool Pride 2014 will be announced in the near future, as will a programme of film and fringe events.

With the changes ahead, expect Liverpool Pride 2014 to be the biggest and best event yet!
