Manchester Pride’s accounts for year ending 2015 state that 43,000 tickets sold that year was the highest number ever.
In fact the Community Report issued by Mardi Gras in 1999 states that sales in 1998 were 51,000 and 45,000 in 1999.
Pride’s own 2009 accounts state that attendance was “over” 42,000 that year. The accounts for the following year, 2010, say there was a 6% increase in ticket sales that year.
42,000 x 6% = 2,520
Three years in which ticket sales were higher than the 43,000 in 2015…
Manchester Pride hasn’t responded to an email about this. When will Pride be held to account for misleading the public repeatedly?
