Join us for the Manchester Pride Parade on the Saturday of the August Bank Holiday weekend!


Proud to be a part of Manchester Pride 2018

Manchester Metropolitan University will be celebrating diversity and equality in our city as part of the Manchester Pride Parade 2018.


Manchester Pride Parade 2018 is taking place on Saturday 25 August and it’s set to be the greatest show on earth, with this year’s theme of ‘Circus of Acceptance’.

Every year, tens of thousands of spectators fill the streets to enjoy the brightly decorated floats and lots of flamboyant walkers, as they weave their way throughout the heart of Manchester’s city centre, proudly marching together in support of LGBT+ communities.

Manchester Met is #McrMetProud of its diverse community of staff, students and alumni, and we’re looking forward to taking part in the Manchester Pride Parade for the sixth consecutive year. 

Interest in joining us on the Parade float has flooded in this year but don’t worry, there’s still a few spaces left – email if you want to take part. If you have already signed up, make sure you keep an eye on your emails for everything you need to know about the day.

The Parade is one of the much-loved elements of the Manchester Pride Festival, which takes place on Friday 24 – Monday 27 August 2018. There are so many ways to celebrate LGBT+ life throughout this award-winning weekend, including live music and entertainment, the Candlelight Vigil and Superbia.

The Superbia Weekend offers a diverse array of premieres and firsts, including film screenings, performances, conversation and community workshops. Taking place over four days across three venues, including No. 70 Oxford Road, activities are free to attend and family friendly, so it’s definitely worth checking out!
