Southampton Pride


Next dates

Southampton Pride 2024 is taking place across two whole days for the very first time. We will be returning to our traditional slot on the August Bank Holiday Weekend - Saturday 24th August & Sunday 25th August.

Marching with Southampton Pride 2024
11am from Queens Park
Our free community Pride March is the highlight of the event, making its way through the City Centre, through the city’s historic Bargate before heading back to the event site.

Since 2021, our March has started further into the city at the stunning Queens Park. Our March participants including both corporate and public sections meet in the park before the event begins at approximately9:45am before setting off along the High Street towards the Bargate at approx. 11:00am.
A key central focus of our Pride Photography each year, the march pauses at the Bargate for photos with our official crew and the public watching the march progress before setting off again for the final stretch towards the Southampton Pride event at Guildhall Square.

Due to traffic regulations, roads are temporarily closed for us to be able to safely make our way through the city centre, but these need to be reopened as quickly as possible to minimise disruption, especially if there is a football match on at St Mary's. For this reason, the March splits at Civic Centre Road with half heading towards our Above Bar Street Main Entrance and the other heading towards Civic Centre Road entrance.

For security reasons, all March participants with bags must be searched upon entry to the site - there are no exceptions to this. Water bottles must be sealed or empty to be allowed through security.
