Smithfield Live

We are delighted this year to introduce ‘Smithfield Live’ to the Birmingham Pride festival for the very first time.

Smithfield is the new location, situated just metres from Birmingham’s LGBTQ+ village that will play host to our BIGGEST ever Main Stage, the legendary Cabaret Stage, our ground breaking Dance Arena and the additional attractions of the popular Fun Fair, street food stalls, community stalls, seating areas and MORE!

Previously the home of the famous Birmingham Wholesale Markets, the site is set across 12 acres within which Birmingham Pride will accommodate 20,000 attendees safely and securely, ensuring an enjoyable experience for us all.

Smithfield will go on to be developed further in the coming years, creating a unique, full time event location, providing the new home for the forthcoming Commonwealth Games, scheduled to be held in 2022.

The famous Birmingham Pride main stage returns, even bigger for 2021, with added runway, increased VIP area, larger screens for better visibility and of course an amazing line up of international, national and local recording artists.

The Birmingham Pride Dance Arena is iconic and for the first time ever, this year will see the Dance Arena housed within a famous circus BIG TOP providing extra space and additional capacity!

The legendary Birmingham Pride Cabaret Marquee is back again this year, showcasing some of the best Drag talent in the UK along with your favourite cabaret performers!
