Plymouth Pride 2019 – Cancelled

Due to forecasted severe weather conditions on Saturday 10th August, specifically high winds, Plymouth Pride 2019 has been cancelled for this date.

Following full consultation with all of the relevant authorities including, Devon and Cornwall Police, emergency services and the Met Office, a final decision was made today Wednesday 7th August to cancel the event – with a view to rescheduling it at a later date.

Mark Ayres – Co-director of Pride in Plymouth explained:

Your safety is our priority, as well as the safety for performers and crew the potential risk is too severe for the event to go ahead at this time. Our ethos is to create a safe space for ALL and sadly the weather will prevent us from doing this on Saturday.”

If we can not secure the infrastructure required for the event to proceed at a later date this year then all monies raised supporting this years event will go towards next year’s Pride.

The Pride in Plymouth Directors would like to apologise for the disappointment to our followers and supporters, we also apologise for any disruption caused to local businesses, performers and crew who were looking forward to #PlymPride19 as much as we were.

Lets hope we can secure the necessary infrastructure to hold the event at a later date this summer when the weather may be kinder to us.

One of our team will contact stall holders and exhibitors that have booked for 2019 with further details regarding the cancellation.
