There are fantastic entertainment acts to be announced from Bingo on Thursday, a quiz on Friday and live music from Irish artists on the Saturday night. There are also some amazing spot prizes to be won throughout the week that have been kindly donated by Rudies and Co., Sex Siopa, Box of Smiles, Ode to Earth, Suchness Jewellery, The Styling Irish, Cian’s, The Wyatt Hotel, Mescan Brewery, McGings Bar,
The Clayton Hotel and many more to be announced!
Pride Inside has given the opportunity to smaller, rural Pride festivals from all over Ireland to celebrate how diverse and inclusive the Irish LGBT+ community is. Since large gatherings have been restricted due to the unforeseen events of 2020, online was the only way to go about having a festival. This has created a buzz for something that has never been done before, and has strengthened the bonds between the different Pride festivals across the country.
