Celebrating 30 Years Queer


On Sat 24th November we are celebrating 30 years of the LGBT+ Centre.

Two events are planned:

– a free, community event starting with a walking tour at 2pm and including activities, singing and workshops at the centre until 6pm. There is a facebook event for this and free tickets via eventbrite.

– an intimate after party, £5 in advance. Expect late-night dancing and debauchery. We have posters and postcards for the evening event as well as a facebook event with tickets being sold via Eventbrite. 

Please help to spread the word and feel free to join us!
