To help you do so, we’ve come up with a range of activities, discussions and initiatives that you can host for participants to engage with, learn from and celebrate Pride.
PRIDE INSIDE, BANNER WORKSHOP

Guests will enjoy an exciting and fun fusion of roller skating, 70s dance moves, flamboyant outfits and disco beats that will have everyone laughing and on their feet!
