Coronavirus Postpones Pride in Liverpool

Coronavirus Postpones Pride in Liverpool


"We remain committed to bringing Pride in Liverpool to the city region this year, at a time when we can play a part in bringing our communities back together and help to reboot the citys economy."
Andi Herring, co-founder, LCR Pride Foundation



The LCR Pride Foundation has announced its decision to postpone Pride in Liverpool and reschedule to a date later in 2020. The event was due to take place on Saturday 25 July 2020.

As well as the main Pride in Liverpool festival, the postponement will affect the city region’s annual March with Pride and Pride Sundae programme of events. A new date will be revealed in the coming weeks. 

Andi Herring, Co-Founder of LCR Pride Foundation said: “Knowing the importance of the annual Pride in Liverpool festival to so many people, suppliers and businesses, the decision to postpone the event has not been taken lightly. 

“Since the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been in regular communication with all of our partners, sponsors and suppliers. We have also been closely following advice and updates from Public Health England and the UK Government. 

“In this planning stage of the event, we usually meet in person with emergency service partners, health services and other suppliers, in order to ensure a safe, secure and well-organised festival. 

“The recent announcement of the government-enforced lockdown, which we fully support, means that these vital meetings will not be possible. The decision to postpone has been led by our commitment to protect the health and wellbeing of all of our communities, both now and at our annual festival. 

“We remain committed to bringing Pride in Liverpool to the city region this year, at a time when we can play a part in bringing our communities back together and help to reboot the city’s economy. We will be announcing our new date in the coming weeks, along with our annual theme and campaigns.

“We thank everyone for their patience and understanding in these challenging times and encourage everyone to stay home and stay safe.”
