About Us

We deliver a week long Queer Arts and Pride festival celebrating LGBTQIA+ life in Hebden Bridge and surrounding areas annually in late July, featuring national & international artists as well as championing local talent. 

We run a diverse range of events throughout the year of equal quality to our festival, bringing new & emerging queer art to our audiences as well as cherished big name acts. 

We produce an annual youth engagement project working with local schools to raise awareness and educate about LGBTQIA+ life, and we run campaigns supporting & positively affirming the local LGBTQIA+ community. 

Our patrons, human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell, Trans activist & artist Kate O’Donnell, iconic singer Horse McDonald and award winning poet Jackie Kay not only help steer us forward but actively take part in our festival every year.
