Wolves Pride returns to Wolverhampton this weekend with an exciting line-up of performers, stalls, street food vendors and bars.


A giant marquee in St Peter’s Car Park, off Wulfruna Street in the city centre, is the venue for the free event on Saturday 12 October. 

Headlining the fun-packed afternoon will be a Lady Gaga tribute act as well as tributes to Elton John and Ariana Grande.


BBC Radio Two’s Richie Anderson will be making an appearance too, as well as Wolverhampton Brass Band and the city’s very own Nate Ethan, who is believed to be the country’s first transgender rapper.

Refreshments will be provided by a variety of street food vendors, with gin, prosecco and cocktail specialists also on hand. 


The Pride festival has been organised and funded by the City of Wolverhampton on behalf of the Wolverhampton LGBT+ Alliance. Funding has also been provided by the University of Wolverhampton. 

Commenting on the event, Kelly Walker-Reed, chair of Wolverhampton LGBT+ Alliance, said: “We’re really excited that Wolverhampton will be celebrating Pride this year. Our city is made up of wonderfully diverse communities, and it's our aim to show that anyone who identifies as LGBT+ is welcome and included in the city's future. 


“It will be a great honour to take part in an event which celebrates difference, love and inclusion. We hope that everyone taking part has a brilliant day and recognises the importance of Pride events."

Pride will get under way at 3pm; the last act will come off stage at 11pm. For more information, search for Wolves Pride on Facebook.
