Become a Pride Star


Join our army of Pride Stars and volunteer for this year's Manchester Pride Festival. There're a whole host of roles available for you to get your teeth stuck in to from Parade Marshals and Fundraisers to Promo Crew and Wristband Exchange. There're also a number of perks to being a Pride Star, including free entry to The Big Weekend, Pride Star T-Shirts, volunteer socials and much, much more.

Pride Star Roles

Promo Crew

Help us scream and shout about The Big Weekend, including our star-studded stage line-ups, the fabulous Manchester Pride Parade and the moving Candlelit Vigil. The Promo Crew are a lively bunch who ensure Manchester Pride's promotional materials are everywhere, throughout the event site, in bars, clubs and restaurants in The Village and throughout the city! We're loud and proud so we want the world to know!

Wristband Exchange Crew

Join our team of Wristband Exchange Crew who make sure our visitors have the right wristbands when they exchange their tickets on arrival at The Big Weekend.

Scan their ticket and put on the wristband, giving them hassle free access to let them enjoy everything the Big Weekend has to offer!

Parade Fundraisers

Wave those charity buckets as you walk the route of the Parade and encourage as many donations from the crowds of well-wishers and supporters who come out in the thousands to watch the magnificent Manchester Pride Parade!

Engage Team

We love our visitors, so much so we'd like to get to know them a little better! Join the Engage team to find out what our visitors loved about the Big Weekend, what they'd like to see at future Manchester Pride events, their reasons for attending, how far they've travelled and other aspects of their visit - so that we continue providing the UK's multi-award winning Pride event!

Expo Assistants

Help our exhibitors as they set-up for the Expo - a community space where visitors can join up to organisations, take part in demonstrations or try out something new! We have a divers range of exhibitors - from local and national LGBT organisations and charities to health and well being, sports and recreation. Be on-hand to ensure that our exhibitors have everything they need for a hassle-free and rewarding Expo!

Parade Marshalls

Help us keep the Parade in full swing and join the team of marshals who keep everyone and everything moving! You'll be the eyes and ears of our parade entrants as you weave yourself and your group of walkers or allocated float around the city of Manchester to adoring fans and supporters!

Big Weekend Fundraiser

Every penny collected in our charity buckets goes direct to the Manchester Pride Fund - so we need as many of our Pride Stars to grab a collection bucket or tin and go out in to the Big Weekend festival armed with goodies and encourage our generous visitors to surrender any spare change!

Pride Parade Troop

Fancy joining our Manchester Pride Parade Troop? Join us as we turn the streets of Manchester in to a kaleidoscope of colour as we strut our stuff along the Parade route to our adoring well-wishers and supporters.
