After careful deliberation Nottinghamshire Pride have announced that the event will no longer take place this July but hopes to return next year.
Originally scheduled to take place on 25th July 2020, the organisers of Nottinghamshire Pride announced yesterday (15th May) that the event will no longer be taking place as planned. As you may suspect, the reason behind the decision is due concerns over COVID-19. In case you're unfamiliar, Nottinghamshire Pride is a annual event that takes place in Nottingham city centre and is free to attend. The event exists to bring the LGBT+ community together and celebrate diversity. It's about visibility, education and celebration.
In a statement released on their social media pages (which you can read below), the organisers take a moment to thank their team before encouraging would-be attendees of the event to shift their gaze to July 2021.
Although the physical event is no longer taking place, it looks like the team may have ideas for online events and activities that people can take part in from home. Drag Bingo is already confirmed and will take place as part of Nottstopping Festival on Saturday 23rd May. Get those dabbers ready!
We'll keep you updated on any new announcements.
