Bristol Pride – Putting Bristol on the Eurovision Map

Bristol Pride Eurovision Bucks Fizz

Bristol Pride remains the largest free Pride festival in the UK and yesterday it reached new levels of support with the biggest turnout in the event’s history.

The success of the Eurovision feature at this year’s Bristol Pride may open the door for a greater Eurovision theme in future years.

Attracting the Eurovision community to Bristol is a great opportunity for local businesses and venues,Read More
