UPDATED 28 OCTOBER 2020
When the Pride Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, all ticket holders were informed by direct email on 03 April and through social/print media and Pride website that this year’s Pride Fabuloso Anniversary celebrations were postponed until 2021.
Options for ticket holders included:
• retaining your ticket for the rescheduled event in 2021.
• Donating your ticket to support Pride going forward and our fundraising for community organisations
• Or applying for a refund of the face value of the ticket.

Please note the deadline for refund applications was 30th April 2020 – all tickets have now been rolled over and are valid for FABULOSO 2021.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Festival tickets are valid for the Fabuloso Pride in the Park on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th August 2021 on Preston Park.

£2.00 charity contribution fee per ticket is added to the face value of each ticket to clearly show the minimum Pride ring-fenced allocation towards charity and community fundraising.

All Pre Release tickets are limited to 2 per person to allow more people to benefit from the more affordable tickets and prevent bulk buying and selling-on (touting). A maximum of 4 tickets per booker is permitted.
Fabuloso Pride In The Park Tickets is only available through the Pride Ticket Shop. A ticket purchased from secondary ticket sites or from ticket touts will not be valid and Pride accepts no liability for refunds.
