Festival Headliner and After-Party cut due to budget

Due to an increase in the fixed costs of services mandatory for Warwickshire Pride 2023 to be allowed to run and a decrease in sponsorship funds, it is with regret that we must announce there are no monies to pay for a headline music act or an after-party.

The cost of putting on the festival has risen significantly this year. We have less sponsorship and funding, so we’ve had to prioritise putting on an inclusive, accessible festival for all to enjoy over having a headliner and after-party. We just can’t afford them and other elements of the festival are more important.
As always, we want to be real and transparent with people.

There is still plenty for you to come and enjoy. Over 100 stalls, food and drink, fairground rides, a dog show, trans tent, bi tent, women’s tent, youth tent, education tent, workshops, kids’ activities, art, and the Warwickshire Pride March.

All on Saturday 19th August from 11:00am – 6:00pm at the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa. Please come along, enjoy this FREE event, and donate to help it continue.
