Pride Village entry requirements

Details may be subject to change as part of the planning process. Should this happen, we will inform all ticket holders, and post updates on our social media and website.

Please email any enquiries to our Events team.

The Pride Village is in the Northern Meeting Park

Please note that for safety and operational reasons, entry into the Pride Village will be restricted to 4000 people.

Do I need a ticket for the Village area? Yes, although FREE, so we can ensure your safety we need people to register for tickets, which MUST be exchanged for wristbands prior to the event. You will need a wristband to get into the village area. If you do not have a wristband, you will be denied access. 

No ticket = no wristband
No wristband = no access

How do I book a ticket? The booking site for tickets will be opened soon.

How do I exchange my ticket for a wristband? Tickets will only be exchanged in person, and proof of ticket booking must be presented at the time of the exchange. There will be opportunities to collect wristbands during July before our Pride event, and on the day. Information about the exchange process will be added here soon, and details will be emailed to ticket holders. 

Can I exchange my ticket for a wristband whilst waiting in the queue or at the entry point? No as this will cause delays.

What happens if I’m not wearing a wristband at the point of entry? You will be denied access and directed to an exchange point where some wristbands may be available.

What happens if I lose my wristband? It is your responsibility to keep your wristband safe if you collect it prior to the event. Lost wristbands will not be replaced. If there any spare wristbands these will be given out on the day at an exchange point near the Pride Village, and only once others have entered.

Which entry points are being used? More information on the entry points and queuing system will be made available nearer the time, and details will be emailed to ticket holders.

What if I can no longer attend? If you’ve booked a ticket, please cancel your ticket booking. If you’ve already collected your wristband, please return it to us at Highland Pride SCIO, c/o 28 Queensgate, Inverness, IV1 1DJ.

Age restrictions: There are no age restrictions. Everyone must have a wristband.
