The Candlelit Vigil
Time shown in British Summer Time.
The Candlelit Vigil is the culmination of Manchester Pride Festival, and each year it closes the four days of the festival with a moment of reflection in Sackville Gardens.
The gardens are transformed into a sea of flickering candles as the party comes to end. We take a minute to remember those we have lost to HIV as LGBTQ+ people join together to fight the epidemic worldwide, and the stigma that still exists.
The Candlelit Vigil also provides a space to remember those who are suffering and those who are persecuted, presenting an opportunity to stand together in a united front as we recognise the many challenges that are still faced by LGBTQ+ communities, both here in the UK and around the world.
The event is free and expected to start after sunset, but the exact time is not yet known. Please check with the event organiser for the exact time.
