Retrieve your rainbows, raid your closet for something pink, white or blue, and get ready to have your say in style: Wigan Pride is BACK!

The Wigan Council backed summer event WIGAN PRIDE will return on Saturday, August 12 with a celebration of Northern music. The day-long, free event will take place across Wigan town centre and will also feature a wide array of talent and entertainment.

Organisers also plan to acknowledge the role both Pride events and people from the region have played as pioneers of social change with a huge street parade, fabulous guest speakers and an amazing competition designed to get young people thinking about their rights and responsibilities.

Committee spokesperson, Dan Bonney, has been involved in organising Wigan Pride since it began in 2015.He said: “We’re looking at a fantastic line up of music and entertainment that will truly celebrate Northern culture…We’ll make sure that everyone has a great time.”

For the last few years, each Wigan Pride event has celebrated a different colour from the Pride flag, each having  its own meaning. In 2023, guests will be invited to dress in shades of pink and blue, inspired by the transgender flag, alongside the usual splash of rainbows.

More information on Wigan Pride 23, including artist line up will be revealed over the next few months.
