To ensure the safety of everyone in attendance at this year’s highly-anticipated Manchester Pride Live, the organisers will be implementing a strict clear-bag policy.

According to the new policy, all bags must be 100% transparent – that means that iridescent, colour tinted or opaque bags will not be accepted. With more people than ever expected to attend this year’s festivities, it will help everything run smoothly if everyone sticks to these rules so that we all enjoy the weekend.

In life and in your Pride bag selection, it’s what’s INSIDE that counts! In preparation for Manchester Pride, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite see-through bags to suit every style. Check them out below, and scroll to the bottom to read Manchester Pride’s official clear-bag policy.

The official statement from Manchester Pride:

“If you wish to bring more belongings into Manchester Pride Live than can fit in your pockets, a clear bag will be required. Bags will need to be 100% transparent, and ALL items inside the bag must be visible. Holographic/iridescent/clear bags with a coloured tinge will not be permitted.

Security at Manchester Pride Live will be strict and precise. If you attempt to bring a bag outside of the specifications detailed, entry will be refused. Please note that there are no locker facilities at Manchester Pride Live, so any unsuitable bags will need to be left at home or at your accommodation for the weekend.”
