The Pride in Liverpool March taking place on Saturday 29th July 2023 ahead of several activity zones across the city following this.

The march will leave St Georges Hall at approximately 12:00hrs and make its way through the city centre, passing (or nearby to) your business, before it arrives at the Pier Head at
approximately 12:45- 13:00hrs.

We have robust event and traffic management plans in place for the march with the main purpose to help ensure people can take part as safely as possible – this will include
controlled road closures across the route.

The main road closures will be in place from 11:00hrs until approximately 14:30hrs. We
advise all businesses to avoid arranging deliveries between these times as access will not
be possible until the road closure is lifted.

We hope that this event is a great opportunity for your business, colleagues and customers to show their support for the region’s LGBT+ Community. We’d encourage you to consider making a donation to our charity via www.lcrpride.co.uk to help us make sure this event continues to happen and can remain free.

Pride In Liverpool – Event Zones

This year, Pride in Liverpool is taking place using a different format – it will be taking place in smaller zones across the city centre rather than one large festival site.

These are:

Pier Head Food & Drink Court
Mann Island Community Zone
Museum of Liverpool Wellbeing Zone
St Nicholas Church Garden Party

A number of other pop-up performances will take place across the city centre within pedestrianised areas.

All businesses within these zones have been consulted regarding their servicing requirements. Please ensure this message is passed on to suppliers e.g. deliveries or waste companies.

The event is FREE and you do not need tickets to access the site during the event. Bag searches are in place for safety and licensing purposes only. All entertainment on event zones will be finished by 18:00hrs.


We have also now activated our Business/Resident Liaison Service which can be accessed by emailing [email protected]

A member of the team will review your message and look to respond within 3 working days. Please include a phone number if you would prefer a call back. 

On the day of the event, this inbox is continually monitored and we aim to respond to emails within 1 hour.
