It is in everyone’s best interest for you to stay safe at Pride, we have compiled some information on how to do so and includes a list of items banned from the festival.

We advise everyone attending that there will be a full bag search policy in place, therefore you are asked only to bring essential bags. Bags should be smaller than an a3 sheet of paper.

Ourselves, Police Scotland and Serenity Security advise you purchase your tickets in advance and exchange them for your wristband prior to the event. Full information on how to purchase and exchange are on the attached link.
