MyMiltonKeynes to show pride in the city with key sponsorship deal & FREE use of mybus on the day

MyMiltonKeynes will be throwing its support behind one of the city’s most inclusive celebration festivals as Pride returns to Campbell Park this September.

Last year, the glamorous free event attracted more than 16,000 people to the city with the aim of challenging the discrimination of the LGBTQIA+ community, bringing people together to celebrate and support others – and adding some colour to the city.

This year’s event will be held on September 9th in Campbell Park and alongside supporting the event, MyMiltonKeynes will be sponsoring the official programme. Alongside sponsoring the official programme,  MyMiltonKeynes will be offering the use of their electric mybus on Saturday 9th September between 10am – 6pm to help visitors travelling into Milton Keynes. Mybus will run from the train station to the event at Campbell Park and our ambassadors will be on hand to help visitors with enquiries and directions. This service will be FREE of CHARGE.

Last year festivalgoers were treated to a fabulous event which included a Drag and Cabaret tent, a Sensory Tent and a host of performers, mainly from the LGBTQIA+ community.

Melanie J Beck MBE, Chief Executive at MyMiltonKeynes said: “We are so incredibly proud to throw our support behind such an inclusive and wonderful event. Milton Keynes is open to everyone and festivals like this really help to promote that inclusivity.

“We can’t wait to see what this year’s festival brings, although we know it will produce plenty of colour, happiness and positivity – which is everything that Milton Keynes stands for, and everything MyMiltonKeynes looks to promote.”

This year’s event, as always, encourages people from all walks of life to attend including families – although those under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times. The format will follow previous events with a family-friendly feeling between 12pm and 6pm and a more adult vibe from 6pm onwards with language and lyrical content no longer restricted.

There will be a funfair, food village, rainbow market, kids space and plenty of incredible performances on the rainbow stage.
