Nottinghamshire Pride!

Mon 16th Jul 2018

by Nottinghamshire Pride

Nottingham City Centre will be a celebration of colour on Saturday 28th July as Nottinghamshire Pride 2018 bursts back for it’s biggest year yet. Taking place in Hockley the annual LGBTQ+ celebration is jam-packed full of events and activities for people of all ages to enjoy.

Life News

“Last year we had over seven thousand people attend the event and it was great to see so many diverse people and families supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Every year we put more effort into making Pride even more special, aiming to provide an inclusive and a community focussed free event for all to enjoy, but this can only happen through the funding and donations we receive. A lot of hard work goes into the planning and organisation of the event through the course of the year and we’d like to offer thanks to people, businesses and organisations who work with us to make the event happen. Lastly, we’d also like to give a big shout to all of our volunteers who give up their spare time to help make the event a success.”

Nottinghamshire Pride Chair, Leigh Ellis

“Nottinghamshire Pride is something that we have to fund ourselves as a charity every year. To help ensure that the festival’s future is secure for future generations there will be donation points in Hockley, all proceeds raised from these will go towards the festival budget next year. So if you can support the organisers with a small donation it would be greatly appreciated. Come and support Pride and enjoy this vibrant and inclusive event in the heart of the city. Everyone always comments about how much fun the event is and how it gets better each year. Every year we joke nobody may turn up but the crowd keeps getting bigger. It’s a great day out, something that the whole family can enjoy, with a really friendly, colourful and accepting atmosphere. We would thoroughly recommend it for anyone who supports diversity and wants to celebrate it in our city.”
