Wakefield Pride is one of Yorkshire's oldest Pride celebrations dating back to 2005. It has evolved and grown over time and now we are a registered charity.
In 2020 this sadly did not happen due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the ban on mass gatherings.
As you can imagine to organise such an event including the parade costs tens of thousands of pounds most of which we can gain through grants and charitable funding however this year our own fundraising efforts remain thwarted by the pandemic as the majority of this is raised within the hospitality sector.
We are planning an amazing line up as usual, at a new bigger venue in the heart of the city that will partly incorporate the Town Hall. We are also trying to give as much work to artists who have been unable to perform for a year and to encourage bars and businesses on the periphery of the event to become involved.
We do believe that light is at the end of the tunnel in terms of the event and thank everyone for their support.
