Launch Party 2016

This is where it all began!

Hundreds of people flocked to the town centre to celebrate the Pride Launch Party, raising interest and energy for the full-scale event the following year.

With speeches, live music, and cabaret entertainment, it may have been small in size but huge in stature!

Hastings Pride 2017

Our first full Parade and Festival!

Hastings Pride really upped the ante for 2017 with a Parade that wound its way through streets thronged with support from the public, then on to The Oval where the festivities began.

Packed with community stalls, market traders, food and bars, and an arts and cabaret tent, the free-to-attend Pride Festival was focused on the local LGBT+ community and its friends. Cabaret acts hosted the music on the main stage, ranging from 60s-themed tribute bands to a wealth of local talent.
