Organisers of Birmingham Pride have announced that the two-day festival, which was scheduled to take place on 23 & 24 May, will now be postponed until Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 September, as a result of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.


The Pride team are keen to emphasise that they are categorically not cancelling the 2020 festival, and are currently negotiating with all the artists from this year's line-up to see if they can appear in September instead.

Everyone who has already purchased tickets for this year’s event has been notified by email of the planned new date by the event’s ticket agent, TheTicketSellers.com - so take a look in your inbox now if you’ve purchased tickets.


Here is the Birmingham Pride statement in full:

As a result of the worldwide Coronavirus Pandemic, we regret to announce that Birmingham Pride 2020 will be postponed and will NOT take place as planned on May 23rd and 24th.


We are not cancelling Pride, however, we are pleased to confirm the new date of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September, where Birmingham Pride 2020 will be showcasing a brand new space never used before - giving us all something to look forward to.

We very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously later into the summer months, so that we can go ahead with one of the most important dates in the LGBTQ calendar - we will do whatever it takes.

Birmingham Pride is important to us all and the fantastic charities that we support.

We are currently negotiating with all artists from this year's line up to appear in September and we are still very much excited to present what will be the biggest and best Birmingham Pride to date.

We urge you to please support Birmingham Pride during these difficult times.  You don't need to do anything, as your tickets will automatically be transferred to the new dates and more information will follow on the line up and other exciting things as they happen. If you would like to support further by donating your May 2020 ticket to Pride charities, you will have the option to do this when you log into your account on TicketSellers.

Let’s all come together later in 2020 and in the meantime, stay safe, look after each other and remember, we are ‘Stronger Together’.
