Road closures to be aware of

On Saturday rolling road closures will affect key streets like Hurst Street, Kent Street, and Bromsgrove Street for the Birmingham Pride Parade. Some streets may remain closed longer around festival sites.

Birmingham Pride public transport

Public transport is recommended for those travelling to and from the city this weekend. Trains to Birmingham New Street, Moor Street, and Snow Hill are within walking distance of Centenary Square, the parade's starting point. Buses and trams have routes directly to Pride sites. National Express West Midlands will divert several bus services like the 9, 23, and 50 during the parade hours. Pride ticketholders can enjoy free bus travel with a one-week regional nBus ticket. Look out for an email to claim your voucher!

For parking, The Arcadian and The Mailbox car parks are convenient, with additional spaces at the Utilita Arena Birmingham for parade participants. Watch our video above for further details.
