The event aims to bring local residents, groups, organisations, charities, and businesses together to showcase Salford’s diverse communities.

A spokesperson for Pink Picnic said: “Salford Pride believes that everyone should be welcome to show their support for the LGBT+ community and embrace the spirit of pride. The Pink Picnic is a grassroots event that personifies the true essence of what pride means and what it originally stood for.

“The Salford Pride team are looking forward to welcoming attendees to this year’s event, which hopes to be an amazing day.”
