The annual Manchester Pride festival and parade will take place in the city centre this weekend and there will be changes to local roads and bus services as a result.
The area around Chorlton Street and Sackville Street will be fenced off from Friday morning and will be closed to traffic throughout the weekend.
On Saturday, the annual parade will start at 1pm from Liverpool Road and will then travel along Liverpool Road, Deansgate, St Anne’s Street, Cross Street, Princess Street and Whitworth Street, where it will end.
Local roads are likely to be a lot busier during the parade and bus services are expected to be affected until around 5pm, with diversions planned.
Details of changes will be posted at affected bus stops. Passengers are advised to check for information on their services at stops and plan ahead accordingly. Please click here for more information.
