Keeping it in the room: health, happiness and living in Berlin
Following the recent announcement that Liverpool Pride 2014 will be a part ticketed event, organisers have confirmed that tickets for this year’s festival on Saturday 2 August have gone on sale today, with a limited number of early bird tickets on sale at just £5.
Liverpool Pride was established in 2010 and takes place each year to coincide with the date of murdered gay teenager Michael Causer. 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.
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 12 Noon 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.
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.’
