Pride Parade Details

I would absolutely love to match the amazing turn out we had last year. Let’s put some purple into Pride and remind everyone bisexuals exist.

As usual the Pride organisers are not so…erm…organised. So I’m expecting some last minute time changes again, but here’s what we’ve got so far:

“The March will start from Castlegate and will set off at 11.30am. Be Colourful, Noisy and PROUD!!”

Unhelpfully, that’s all the info they’ve provided!

So let’s meet at 11:00pm on the corner of Listergate, Albert Street and Castlegate. If you came last year, it will be the same place we met last year. If you didn’t come last year, walk down Albert Street from St Peter’s Square as if you’re going to train station. The parade start point is the first crossroads you’ll come to. You will be able to find me very easily. I will be the person with long brown hair and specs carrying two washing poles and a banner!

I’m going to get a banner with the BiTopia logo printed on for us. Please can you bring whistles, flags, poi, etc. I’d suggest wearing flat, comfortable shoes if you’re walking. Please wear purple if you can!

Access: As soon as I know the route map for the parade I will post it. Last year the road/pavement surfaces were quite smooth and flat and there were no steps, however the parade did go up and down some slopes on streets like Pelham Street.

After the parade we can go and get some food and drink somewhere to unwind and relax.
