Decision details

Pride 2022-2026 inclusive

Decision Maker: Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


RESOLVED – that Committee:


1.    Gave consent to the Brighton Pride Community Interest Company to stage the Pride Parade through the City and a fenced and ticketed Pride Festival in Preston Park and Pride Village Party in the St James’ Street area for the years 2021 – 2026 and granted delegated authority to the Executive Director Economy, Environment & Culture to agree the terms of the annual licences save that if it is proposed that there is a material change to the terms (other than those relating to cost sharing which were dealt with at 2.2) compared to previous years, the lead members of the committee shall be consulted.


2.    Recognised that given that Pride 2020 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, that current projection models for Pride at the time of writing may well be unreliable. Therefore the Committee agreed:


-       To delay the decision to reach an agreement for cost sharing until after Pride 2021 has taken place, when both Pride CIC and the council will have a clearer and more realistic financial position, from which to review and decide on the matter going forward.

-       That the matter also be brought back to TECC in September 2021, for Councillors to review.
