The new date of Bicester Pride has been unveiled by the organising committee.

Bicester Pride initially started its life as a Facebook group, aimed at uniting the LGBTQ+ community in the town and providing a safe space for LGBTQ+ people to meet.

Organisers have revealed that this summer there will be two different events which members of the LGBTQ+ community can get involved with and enjoy.

This year’s Bicester Pride will be only its second official celebration, following a successful first Pride weekend last September.

The first event this summer is set to take place on July 16 and will see the Bicester Pride parade will join the back of wider Bicester Festival parade.

In order for this parade to go ahead, Bicester Pride needs 15 volunteers to take part.

Following this, the main Bicester Pride event will return across three days on the weekend of August 12, 13 and 14.

The jam packed Pride weekend will once again be hosted at The Nightingale pub, in Nightingale Place, and will feature live acts, stalls and community and charity stands.

Bicester Pride 2022 has been supported by Bicester Village, which made a contribution to the festival, and by Bicester Town Council.

Pride festivals are a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community, its culture and also help to raise awareness of issues LGBTQ+ people still face the world over.
