Bourne Free Pride Festival

12 – 14 July 2019

Bournemouth celebrates it LGBTQ+ community with Bourne Free, the annual weekend of fun to celebrate equality and diversity.

What’s on?

Starting on the East Cliff on Saturday 13 July, the Parade heads west to The Triangle on a route just over a mile long.

The Triangle arena is the hub of all things Bourne Free, with a family fun evening on 12 July, and live entertainment from drag artists to celebrities on the Saturday.

With it all being 20 minutes from the stunning Bournemouth seafront, there’s no excuse not to make a weekend of it.
