Notts Pride Community Stage lineup

25 July 2013 by Jennifer

Lineup and other details for the Cooperative Community Stage at Nottinghamshire Pride 2013.

Notts Pride runs from 12 till 6 this Saturday, 27 July, at the Arboretum. This stage will be near the “tunnel”, by the eastern entrances to the Arboretum, where the marchers will come into the park around 12. We will have British Sign Language interpretation (which, as far as I know, the rest of Pride won’t).

Further down this page is a link to a graphic of our programme page, followed by a text version of what’s written on it.

Maps: Location of stage

Closest gate for least walking to that stage, if you’re getting dropped off – about 70 yards from stage

We are told there will be a wheelchair-accessible portable toilet behind the stage, mainly for performers and organisers but also for anyone who can’t easily walk to the other nearest toilets about 20 yards away.

Pride is asking for donations this year – I’m guessing there will probably be some bucket-shaking people at the gates.

Parade info is available from main Pride site.

Small version of Community Stage programme page for Notts Pride 2013

Note that Leigh & Natasher’s “Friday Night Out playing rainbow-flavoured tunes” set at the end was a late addition. The printed programme may have a slightly earlier version of the artwork, which doesn’t mention that. This version is the most up-to-date.

Here’s the programme text…
