Attending the Newcastle Pride Festival
We partnered with Newcastle Pride for the second year in a row, to attend their annual Festival in Hamilton.
The Festival celebrates gender diversity and sexuality amongst the LGBTIQA+ community. Our volunteer staff set up a colourful pop up marquee, with face painting, temporary tattoos and glitter.
Our organisation remains dedicated to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone. Our venues unify and celebrate our local community through a shared love of food, entertainment, sport and leisure.
