This year, Birmingham Pride’s entertainment areas including the Main Stage, Cabaret Stage, Dance Arena and funfair will be situated in Smithfield, the former Birmingham Wholesale Market site adjacent to the city’s gay village.
The Birmingham Pride Street Party will continue to take place within the gay village area, which will also host the Future Stage.
Birmingham City Council Leader, Councillor Ian Ward, said: “Birmingham Pride has become one of the absolute highlights of our cultural calendar, and Birmingham City Council is delighted to continue supporting such a fantastic, inclusive event.
“This is a city where all communities live, work and play together, and I have no doubt that, as the Festival moves to a new home in Smithfield, Birmingham Pride 2020 will prove to be yet another triumph.”
