After last year’s rousing success, we are again promoting events and activities before and after Hastings Pride.

If you have an event or idea that you would like to include, Hastings Pride will advertise your event in our print programme (initial print run of 10,000 copies across the area) as well as on social media. In return, we ask that you commit to raising funds for Hastings Pride through the use of donation tins or a financial contribution. Hastings Pride provides a free-to-attend Parade and Festival and these donations help to ensure that they stay that way. Contact details are at the bottom of this page.
