Last call to get involved in Winter Pride 2011

0

After an absence in 2010 the UK’s largest Winter LGBT Festival is back. Opening on Saturday 5th March 2011, the nine day festival will bring together businesses and community groups to stage a wide variety of events across the city.

Winter Pride 2011 will run from Saturday 5th to Sunday 13th March 2011 and it’s not too late to get in touch to register an event!

This is the last call out for LGBT community groups, venues, individuals and businesses to organise events for Winter Pride 2011. Over the six years Winter Pride was established it was a huge success because community groups, local businesses and LGBT individuals put on a range of fantastic events that appeal to our broad and diverse LGBT populations.

Judith Manson, Pride’s Festival Director says, ‘We want Winter Pride 2011 to be bigger and better with more diverse community involvement and business fundraising events. The response so far has been fantastic with many venues and community groups already confirming their events, including The Bulldog, BLAGSS, Dr Brightons, Marine Tavern, The Prince Arthur, Revenge, R-Bar and The Zone. The final Winter Pride calendar will be announced next month and is sure to have something for eveyone’.

Pride is still looking to support community based events during Winter Pride by offering events advice, options for room hire, free advertising, free listings and promotion of your event and your group. Just let us know what support you need to put on an event and we will do our best to match that need.

If you’re a community group or local business and have an idea for a fundraising or community event you can register now by calling Tom or Jacques on 01273 775939 or email tom@brightonpride.org or jacques@brightonpride.org The final deadline for submissions is Friday 11th February 2011.
