Happy Valley Pride Festival in Hebden Bridge this August

In only its second year, Happy Valley Pride have organised an ambitious, week-long festival of diversity, inclusivity and awareness for everyone – celebrating LGBTQ+ life in Hebden Bridge and surrounding areas.

The festival 7 – 13 August 2017 will include art, cinema, talks, comedy, education, music, the Pink Picnic and lots of fun and games.

To see what’s happening download the Programme of Events including the visit by Peter Tatchell to Hebden Bridge Little Theatre on Saturday 12 August.

Happy Valley Pride was born when local residents witnessed homophobic graffiti sprayed on a piece of tarpaulin by the Hebden Bridge Town Hall, during the summer of 2015. It was a stark reminder that there’s still work to be done – a casual phrase, that has been knocking around school playgrounds for decades, it was none-the-less shocking, simply because it is still in use in our seemingly, tolerant and open-minded community.
