Pride Month: Top UK Events Part Two

Hilton collaborates with Pride 365 to prevent pinkwashing

We want to ensure that everybody feels comfortable and welcome in Hilton hotels, no matter their background or identity. With our open public support and promotion of the LGBTQ+ community 365 days a year—we hope to create real change.

So, to support Pride-goers across the country, we have gathered some more great Pride events to attend this year.

Bournemouth: 8th-9th July

This year, Bourne Free is set in the idyllic Meyrick Park, which means this will be their biggest Pride event ever. On July 8th attendees can expect a family-friendly atmosphere with ‘sensory areas’ and ‘educational areas’. Then, on the 9th, a parade will take place with an eco-friendly theme: ‘Pride goes Green’. Hilton Bournemouth is in the Town Centre, which is only a 5-minute walk away from their weekly Westover Art and Makers Market. 

Cambridge: Saturday 9th July

Cambridge welcomes attendees for a free day-long celebration of local DJs, comedy, poetry and yoga. There are alcohol-free spaces for under 25s to relax and where you can show off your baking skills at the Great British Queer Bake Off. Take your cake back to Hilton Cambridge City Centre to feast on and maybe share with us if you’re feeling generous. If you prefer the idea of a relaxing and wholesome event, this one’s for you.

Birmingham: 23rd-25th September 

This year, Birmingham is celebrating its 25th Pride anniversary and has an unmissable line-up in store. If you haven’t been to Birmingham before, this is the best time to shop, dine and party. The heart of the Pride Village has a family-friendly and accessible area so everybody can join in the fun. When you’re ready to recharge, Hilton Birmingham Metropole is a 25-minute uber away from the heavy beats of the dance arena. 

London: 2nd July 

Shoreditch will never disappoint with its LGBT-friendly atmosphere. Grab a drink at The Glory pub and watch their enchanting entertainers. Have a stay in our award-winning Hart Shoreditch Hotel London, Curio Collection by Hilton, for a luxurious night’s sleep. 

Or, if you prefer to be at the centre of busy city life, stay with us at Hilton London Bankside. It’s only a half-hour tube away from Soho, London’s hottest LGBT district. You can always have a break from the festivities and drop into Tate Modern to experience their new ‘Surrealism Beyond Borders’ exhibition, which is less than a 5-minute walk away. 

And, if you just can’t get enough of Pride, see Hilton’s first blog post to find out what made the top five.
