Tickets are now on sale for official UK Black Pride festival (UKBP) that will take place on Saturday 16th August in Regents Park, London.

UKBP was formed in 2005 following a successful day trip to the beach. With the help of the BME LGBT community the organisation was established.

“There will be something for everyone to enjoy and more importantly the pride event is an opportunity to proudly support and celebrate the talents and achievements of the UK’s Black, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community,” organisers said.

The UKBP festival promises to be an exciting day filled with music, entertainment, live performances, music by the UK’s best DJs, a market place, information stalls and much more.

UKBP is dedicated to promoting unity among Black people of African, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Latin American descent who identify as Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual and Transgender.

UKBP are offering an early bird offer and giving 30% discount on the standard ticket price until Monday 14th July.

Students will also be able to get a discount of 50% off the standard ticket price.

There is also a limited “Diamond package” deal on offer which includes a champagne reception, buffet lunch and free entry to Bootylicious and Soul Naturelle.

UKBP is also looking for volunteers to help out on the day. For more information go to www.ukblackpride.org.uk
