Revive your rainbows, dig out something yellow and get ready for a fabulous, feel-good summer party; Wigan Pride is back for 2022.
Wigan Pride returns on Saturday 13th August with two stages in Wigan town centre and a street parade.
Wigan Pride are hoping the day will celebrate the borough’s community spirit in style after pandemic restrictions impacted on recent editions of the festival.
Committee spokesperson, Dan Bonney, has been involved in organising Wigan Pride since it began in 2015. He said:
“The last few years have been really difficult for everyone, with the pandemic, lockdowns, harsh weather conditions, and some tragic events across the globe.
“Pride has a serious message at its heart and we know how important that message of campaigning for equality still is today.
“But we also feel like what everyone needs right now is a really good party – so we wanted to help bring some positivity and invite everyone to put any worries behind them for just one day and to celebrate being themselves and being together.”
