We provide lots of opportunities for you to get involved with Manchester Pride, both at Manchester Pride Festival and beyond.
If you'd like to be involved in Manchester Pride Festival, check out our opportunities below!
Love being creative and expressing yourself? We are looking for volunteers to join our Parade Troupe and represent Manchester Pride in our March for Peace, with the importance of peace in a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to live and love without prejudice at its heart.
You will attend workshops learning costume making, prop making, dance and more. Then lead The Parade on the big day.
Applications open later in the year, please check back soon.
Each year, we offer artists the chance to perform on our stages. This is a great opportunity to showcase you or your band to thousands of people at our events.
If you would like a chance to perform on one of our stages as part of Manchester Pride Festival 2023, please fill out this expression of interest form.
Each year we hire a selection of Food Traders to ensure our audiences at Manchester Pride Festival have lots of tasty options to choose from during the celebrations. With tens of thousands of people attending each day of Manchester Pride Festival, we get a lot of hungry visitors!
We're looking for some fantastic food traders to help us create the ultimate street party celebration at this year's Gay Village Party.
We don't just want burgers and fries, we want food from all around the world! We've got a lot of veggies and vegans to feed, so bring along your plant-powered dishes. Sweet treats are always welcome, be it an ice cream van or a waffle wagon - we want you too.
Applications for Food Traders will open later this year, please check back soon.
Our ever-popular market will return again this year, offering a great selection of gifts and memorabilia. With thousands of visitors over the weekend, it's a great opportunity to sell your wares.
We’d love to see traders selling things like jackets, vintage tees, unique jewellery, alternative clothing and accessories, body wear, pet products, and more. The more out there, the better! Anything that customers are able to take home with them is always a winner.
We're also looking for products and memorabilia that people will be able to use straight away, or pop in their pockets! Think cool clothes and festival wear, memorabilia, hats, accessories and more.
Market Stall applications will open later this year, please check back soon.
