Rochester Riverside supports inaugural Medway Pride this August
Rochester Riverside is proud to support Medway Pride, which takes place for the first time on 21st August 2021.
Run by volunteer group Medway Pride CIC, Medway Pride Festival 2021 will be a colourful, fun-filled event for all the family to celebrate diversity and support equality, for all communities of Medway. Taking place at Rochester Riverside Walk off Doust Way in Rochester, the festival will include live music, speeches and stalls from the voluntary sector, with live stage performances starting from 12pm.
Medway’s first LGBTQIA+ pride event has been supported by Countryside and Hyde through the Rochester Riverside Community Board, which was set up to ensure that the benefits of Rochester Riverside are felt across the area, bringing to life worthwhile initiatives and ideas that enhance the local area with an annual budget of £30,000 available for selected community-led projects.
Medway Pride is a community event that invites everyone to come together, break down barriers and develop an understanding and acceptance of one another, and is one that we are proud to be a part of.
The festival is part of an eight-day programme across North Kent that commences with Gravesham Pride on Saturday, 14 August 2021, followed by a week of events involving many local partners and ending with Medway Pride.
Medway Pride Festival is a free event but tickets are required to attend, which can be booked via the festival website. Find out more at: https://medwaypride.co.uk/.
