The 10th anniversary of Bristol Pride saw a move to a new venue, after outgrowing Millennium Square. Durdham Downs was chosen as the new home of Pride in Bristol, allowing for an extra 10000 people to attend and returning to a more green field festival feel to the day.
We've been the opening act at every Bristol Pride, but this year, due to the change of venue there were concerns over whether we could march in the parade and get to the Downs in time to perform at 12.30; so we asked to be placed second on the bill, giving us an extra 30 minutes.
This was easily the biggest, loudest, most colourful and most well attended Pride festival the south west has ever seen. Daryn Carter, who has organised each event since 2009, announced at the end of the festival that he is stepping down as CEO of the Bristol Pride charity and will hand over the reins to someone new to lead us in to the next decade of Prides. he will be sorely missed and deserves huge thanks for all the hard work he and his team of volunteers have put into organising such a fantastic series of events, which grew bigger and more ambitious each year. We hope the new organisers still want us involved, because we consider Pride to be one of the most important dates in our calendar.
