The safety of our community is always our first priority.
And so, following the advice from the government, we’ve had to take the extremely difficult decision that the main Pride in Hull event, which was due to be held on 25 July 2020, will not be taking place.
It’s not a choice we’ve taken lightly. Our amazing team of volunteers have been working tirelessly to deliver an incredible event. We know how important Pride in Hull is to the city and the LGBT+ community and we’re gutted that it won’t be happening. But we know it’s the right thing to do for everybody’s wellbeing.
Thanks to Hull City Council, our sponsors, volunteers, suppliers, artists, supporters and everyone involved for their understanding.
Pride is more than just one day. Over the coming weeks we’ll be looking into how we can keep the Pride flag flying over Hull. We’ll be holding a special festive event near Christmas and hope to have some other Pride happenings throughout 2020, so stay tuned to our website and social media channels for more news.
Pride in Hull is a charity. And it’s going to be a difficult year for us. If you can support us by donating your suggested £3 entry fee to help secure our future, please visit prideinhull.co.uk/donate or text HULL 3 to 70085.
We’ll be back in 2021 celebrating our 20th anniversary with the biggest and best Pride in Hull ever.
In the meantime… take care of yourselves. Check in with your friends and neighbours. Look after each other. And keep washing those hands. We’re sorry to let you down, but hope you understand.
Thanks, as ever, for your incredible love and support. We’ll see you soon.
