We’re proud to confirm that Peter Tatchell will be re-joining us this year for our second festival week.
Another week-long event is currently being organised during the week commencing 7 August 2017. This year’s main event day will take place on Saturday 12 August 2017.
Incorporating a wide variety of events, in and around Hebden Bridge including cinema and cabaret, it will continue to build on the success of our first festival in August 2016.
Further details will be announced shortly.
Plus, a week of fringe events, live music and family activities announced for the festival, which celebrates LGBTQ – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans* and Queer life in the Upper Calder Valley.
Organisers of Happy Valley Pride Festival can confirm the programme for this summer’s event, taking place from 8th -14th August 2016 in Hebden Bridge.
When we first discussed having a launch fundraiser, and once we had decided on a basic format, somebody said, “I wonder if we could ask Sally Wainwright to come down and cut the ribbon?” “Well that would be perfect,” somebody else commented. “As if!” we all said unanimously, after a brief pause, moving onto the price of balloons and vol-au-vents.
