Liverpool’s Stanley Street Quarter has been rebranded as the Pride Quarter


Weeks after the Liverpool’s LGBT+ venues came together to launch a new look for the city’s LGBT+ Quarter they are set to mark what would have been Pride in Liverpool with a huge indoor festival.

Taking place on Saturday, July 31, across 13 venues, the Pride Quarter Indoor Festival, organised in partnership with LCR Pride Foundation, will open at 12 noon for Pride Bacon Sandwiches.

It will then continue right through to the early hours on Sunday morning with some venues also having a full programme of entertainment throughout Sunday too. Alongside the indoor festival, GBar’s famous street party will return, as well as the Masquerade’s outside beer garden and pavement cafes at many of the Victoria Street venues.
