This year’s Salford Pride Pink Picnic will take place at Peel Park, Salford, M5 4WU on Saturday 25th June 2022 from 1pm – 8pm.
The Pink Picnic is Salford’s annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Non-binary plus (LGBT+) pride event and is back again in 2022 for its eleventh year. The grass root event personifies the true essence of what pride means and what it originally stood for. With the community at it’s heart, the event brings the local community, groups, organisations, charities, and businesses together to showcase Salford’s diverse communities.
UNISON is proud to support Salford Pride. We will be holding a stall at this year’s event and are looking for volunteers to help out. Helping with the stall will be a great way of showing support and solidarity for the event, while encouraging the benefits of UNISON membership and building mutual support with the LGBT+ community. Volunteers will also have an opportunity to enjoy the rest of the event though, which will feature an array of live entertainment on the main stage, showcasing a roster of local diverse LGBT+ talent and headline artists. Expect to see drag, musicians, dancers, DJ’s and powerful words from prominent voices in the community, including Salford Pride patron and trans activist Annie Wallace (Hollyoaks). In previous years, The Pink Picnic has hosted big names such as Ru Paul Drag Race’s Cheryl Hole, Booty Luv & Big Brovaz, Stooshe, The Cheeky Girls, Eurovision’s SuRie, Union J and local legend Cheddar Gorgeous. This year will be no different with a jam-packed line-up of talent.
As well as the main stage the event will host community stalls promoting local groups, organisations and charities, activities and entertainment for families, children, and LGBT+ youth, funfair rides, a bar tent, food and drink vendors and much more.
Our stall will run from 1pm until around 5pm (with volunteers rotating throughout the day), so if you would like to come along and give an hour or two of your time, while enjoying a great community event then please email email@example.com.
