Lancaster Pride is organised by Out in the Bay, the Lancaster-based charity which works with LGBTQI people and young adults, people who misuse drugs and alcohol, and those living with long-term sexual health conditions.

The day aims to attract a mix of families and people of all ages, and will be free to attend.

Last year’s Lancaster Pride saw a return for the event after a year out due to Covid-19.
