“We can’t wait to see Liverpool Shout It Loud and become A City Full of Pride. This year’s Pride in Liverpool is extra special because we have pop-up events occurring all over the city, so attendees will never be too far from the action. Pride in Liverpool has listened to community feedback and we have dedicated ourselves to curating a programme focussed on community based and local performers.”
