Pre-Pride performance clubnight featuring queer artists from the local scene and across the UK
Bristol's most provocative party of the summer is back at the iconic Trinity Centre!
Reunite with us at a time when safe spaces to come together are more scarce and necessary than ever before. Landing on Pride weekend, we've assembled a glittering line-up of local performance legends and star guests from other galaxies for a one-night spectacle. We're excited to see you there! ✨
