Corby Pride 2024
Corby Town Council will be holding their 2nd Corby Pride event on Saturday 22nd June 2024 and are hoping to go even bigger this year.
Last year's event was a resounding success and saw the town come together as only Corby knows how, by showing a huge support for their LGBT+ community.
This year's event will be held at Coronation Park again which was originally gifted to the people of Corby by the Stewarts and Lloyds company for recreation purposes.
There will be new comperes and acts performing on the centre stage with the addition of a community stage where local groups will perform demonstrations and interactive shows. They will be supported by Massive Hits Radio this year and DJ IvB will be back from Corebeatz Radio.
A range of LGBT+ information stalls will be in attendance alongside independent craft traders, food outlets and bars. There will also be a children's zone, so fun for all the family.
Corby Pride are now calling out for Sponsors who can demonstrate their commitment to a fair and inclusive society.
They rely heavily on sponsorship to keep this event FREE to all and have a range of packages from being Corby Pride's main sponsors right through to sponsoring one of the fabulous acts.
They can cater for all budgets and are happy to discuss tailor made packages as well.
What better way to show the community of Corby how much they mean to you by sponsoring one of Corby's biggest all-inclusive FREE events.
Cllr Callum Reilly, who is the chair of the Pride committee said "We received amazing feedback from last year and it became obvious we had to host Pride again this year. Corby Town Council is committed to delivering events that are important to the community."
Mayor Leanne Buckingham, who is a member of the LGBT+ community said "Corby made history last year and it was a real honour to be a part of it. This is a chance for Corby to come together again at this family friendly event and showcase Corby's diverse and inclusive community."
This year's parade will be using the same route as last and there will be some additional temporary road closures while the parade passes around the town to commence at the park.
