Hello and welcome to the Warwickshire Pride website!
The next Warwickshire Pride will take place on Saturday 28th June 2014!
The 2013 festival took place on Saturday 31st August and was an amazing success. Thank you to everyone involved in ensuring the day ran smoothly.
Use the menu on the left to navigate your way around the site and find out more about Warwickshire Pride.
Be sure to also have a look at the gallery page to see photos from the big day.
In 2014 we are also organising a range of other LGBT friendly events that will be running throughout the year. Go to the calendar for further information.
Celebrating Diversity In The Community
There are a number of ways you can get involved with Warwickshire Pride:
• Spread the word! Tell people about us; share this
website with people you know and our Facebook &
Twitter too. The more people know about us, the
more support Warwickshire Pride gets and the
more successful it will be. People power!
• If you have an area of expertise such as
promotion, fundraising, event organising, etc, then
get in touch and become a Warwickshire Pride
volunteer. If you want to get involved there
will be something you can do.
• Are you a community group that would like to raise
awareness of your cause at Warwickshire Pride?
We want to hear from you. There’s a big emphasis
on bringing communities together and we welcome
applications for community groups wanting to be
involved. Simply go to the Stalls page and
complete an enquiry form.
This is an event for the community so we want the community to be involved. You don’t have to be LGBT to get involved. You just need a positive and open minded attitude, and an enthusiasm to help make an event of this kind happen. Contact us if this is you.
Thank you to all of the lovely people who have already arranged to donate their time and talents to volunteer at Warwickshire Pride.
Once the sun had set on Warwickshire Pride, the town came alive at the only party to be at; the Warwickshire Pride AFTER PARTY! There was lots of fun had so check out the After Party page for all the gossip. 2014 will see another big party. Details will come nearer the time.
Applications to perform at Warwickshire Pride 2014 are now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied. Sorry we could not book everyone who got in touch, but please do apply again next year. In 2013 we had some amazing performances and plenty of entertainment. This year promises to top that. Go to the performers page to find out who was involved last time and keep an eye out for this year's lineup coming soon.
Applications are now being welcomed from stall holders. Whether you are a charity, community group, trader or caterer, get in touch and be involved with Warwickshire's most fabulous festival. In 2013 we had plenty of fantastic stalls; from community organisations and charities to traders selling fabulous items. We also had some food and drink stalls, and some interesting cakes that were the talk of the day. Go to the stalls page to see who was at Warwickshire Pride last time and to apply for your stall at the 2014 festival.
Without funding or sponsorship, Warwickshire Pride is difficult to put on. Although we have received some funds, it does not secure the future of Warwickshire Pride.
If you feel that Warwickshire Pride is an event you would like to see continue, why not donate to us. You will be playing a part in helping our community have an event of their own and we would be eternally thankful. Simply click on the button below to donate. Thank you.
We would like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors and supporters. Without their assistance we would not be able to put on such a great festival and feature so much amazingness.
We have been cooking up something special at Warwickshire Pride HQ. That special something shall be known as...
WARWICKSHIRE PRIDE'S GOT TALENT!
That's right, we're putting on a big ol' talent show on Friday 30th May where competitors will battle each other to be crowned the winner.
Taking place in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire Pride's Got Talent will be hosted by Pride compere Ash P.
Judges on the evening will be:
Daniel Browne - Warwickshire Pride Founder
Momma Sue - Warwickshire Pride legend
Sassi Afrika - Drag Queen Superstar
Chris White - MP for Leamington and Warwick
The champion will receive a headline performance slot at Warwickshire Pride 2014 and also have their own interview and feature in The Gay UK magazine. There are also two runner up prizes of a performance slot during the afternoon of the festival.
This is a prize you do not want to miss out on, so to enter please complete the form below and someone from the Warwickshire Pride team will get back to you.
Anyone is welcome to enter and your talent can be anything.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Lot of love from Warwickshire Pride
Audience tickets for Warwickshire Pride's Got Talent are now available!
On the night it's the audience who vote for the winner of the contest. It really is a case of who wins... you decide!
As well as watching all of the amazing performers do their thing on stage, on the night there will also be performances from Drag Queen superstar Sassi Afrika, who will get up from her judges chair to perform her new single 'Put Your Hands On My Body'. A few other surprises are planned but they are secret, so you'll have to come along to see what they are.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go to helping put on the Warwickshire Pride festival. It's not cheap to put on, funds are limited, and we'd love you for your support of this event.
You can get your Warwickshire Pride's Got Talent audience tickets from Eventbrite.
We look forward to seeing you there!
