The Liberal Democrat Group on Stockport Council welcome the first Pride festival which will be taking place in the Market Place from 10am to 4pm this Sunday 30th July.
There will be a main stage at Castle Yard with acts including two former participants in the X-Factor and a line-up of local performers along with craft stalls and food and drink. There will also be information and support from organisations including the LGBT Foundation, Lifeline, Stockport Mind and Age UK.
Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Lib Dem Group at Stockport Council and Councillor for Cheadle Hulme South, said: “We are proud that Stockport is an open and inclusive borough and the Liberal Demorats will be enthusiastically supporting the Pride festival, with a number of local councillors and campaigners attending.”
Cllr Lisa Smart, Deputy Leader of the Lib Dem Group and Councillor for Bredbury Green and Romiley, said: “This is a true community event with musical acts and other entertainers accompanied by great food and drink.
“Pride events elsewhere have been a really successful way to bring together the whole community and we encourage everyone to come along and enjoy the festival.”
You probably know about the exciting changes happening across Stockport Town Centre.
New investment, transport improvements, leisure opportunities, better spaces and places, cultural programmes and a host of big brand names and independent businesses are moving to Stockport. It’s all part of the complete reinvention at the heart of our town.
Now we need your help to spread the word and get others on board with the dynamic changes taking place.
Creative Concern, working on behalf of Stockport Council and its partners, is planning a major campaign to wake up the world and tell everyone about this transformation. We want to bust myths, open minds and see a good few jaws drop, too.
To make sure we get this right, we want to involve the people who matter most, the residents of Stockport. That’s why we’re recruiting a selection of community volunteers to take part in a small and informal group workshop. We want to know what you think about Stockport – what you like and what could be made even better.
If you are interested in taking part in the workshop we’d love to hear from you. Please send us your details, including your postcode so that we can make sure people from across the whole of Stockport are able to give us their views. We’ll then be in touch to let you know if you are selected.
The session will take place from 6:00-7:30pm on Wednesday 14th June at:
30/31 Market Place
We’ll be putting your feedback to great use as we work on a new campaign to promote Stockport and all of the exciting things going on here.
As a big thank you for taking part, we’re offering a £25 incentive for those who attend.
Please register your interest and RSVP to [email protected]
We look forward to seeing you there. If you are not selected to take part, or are unable to attend, we would still like to hear your comments. Please get in touch to find out the other ways you can get involved and have your say.
