How to get tickets to Manchester Pride 2024

All events at Manchester Pride will be free to enter, apart from the Gay Village Party. Tickets for the party will be on sale through Ticketmaster from 10am on Friday February 2.  It comes after pre-sale tickets sold out in record time.

Weekend tickets will cost £37.50, with £2.50 from every ticket being donated to the Manchester Pride Community Fund, with the money going directly to LGBTQ+ causes and projects in Greater Manchester through the distribution of grants. 

To ensure the Manchester Pride Festival is accessible and inclusive, in response to the cost of living crisis, more Low Income Tickets have been made available this year with options announced soon. Family tickets are also available and priced at £54 for Saturday and £54 for Sunday. These tickets give access to a family of up to four people.

Mark Fletcher, CEO of Manchester Pride, said: “This year we will celebrate our theme of  ‘Buzzin’ to be Queer - A Hive of Progress’ and see the ‘Progress Bee’ become more than a symbol, instead becoming a call to action. It reminds us that, just like worker bees collaborating in a hive, LGBTQ+ communities and their allies can achieve great things when we work together to influence change. It also symbolises the ongoing commitment to progress for LGBTQ+ inclusivity and equality that Manchester Pride champions all year round.”
