The Pride Village Party has been happening in and around the St James’s Street area of the city for many years. Up until 2015 the event was not organised officially by either the council nor by Pride itself, instead, visitors independently congregated in the area attracted by the LGBTQ+ bars and clubs that exist there.
Since 2015 Pride organisers have managed the PVP and have put resources in place to manage the disruption to local people including additional security personnel, street cleaning and toilets. It is now a ticketed event limited to certain parts of St James’s Street and neighbouring roads.

We are now seeking the views of residents and businesses on the future of the PVP, including whether it should continue, where it should take place and any other changes people would like to be made to the event. The consultation is open from 13 December 2018 to 31 January 2019. The responses will be reported to the Tourism, Development and Culture committee in March 2019.
If you require a paper copy of the questionnaire, please contact the Safer Communities team on 01273 292100 and leave your name and address. A paper copy will then be sent to you by post.
