Hosted by Pride in Weston, UK Pride will take place 30 September-1 October 2023


About UK Pride

Each year UK Pride Organisers Network (UKPON) licences one existing member Pride to hold the title of UK Pride. Any member Pride, of any size, may apply for the title of UK Pride, as it is designed to help highlight each member Pride in its own individual way. At our annual AGM conference (also hosted by a member Pride), attending member Prides bid on which Pride will hold the title of UK Pride. The decision to award the title UK Pride is taken by secret ballot with a simple majority vote. As well as licensing the UK Pride title, UKPON will also assist the successful Pride to host UK Pride.

"UK Pride is the celebration of LGBT solidarity throughout United Kingdom. It is for every person (LGBT, other and allies) in Britain and aims to promote diversity, equal rights and inclusion for all, as well as the variety of LGBT culture.”

Pride in Weston is the official UK Pride host for 2023.

"After 8 years of growth and commitment from volunteers, Pride in Weston are proud to provide a platform for the LGBTQ+ community, friends and family to be visible throughout North Somerset and beyond.

After a successful bid in October 2019, Pride in Weston were awarded to host UK Pride in 2023 with an emphasis on accessibility, education and inclusion. It is an honour to represent our community and raise the rainbow flag for the United Kingdom.

Our community events will run all year long in the lead up to the main event on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October. Join us to close the summer season of Pride events and show us what you are #ProudToBe"
