Welcome to the The Memorial Gardens for Pride in Belper – complete with 300 meters of Pride bunting!!
Here the Strutt down King Street will arrive around 12.15 just in time for an afternoon and early evening full of music – details of which can be found on the Rainbow Stage page. Complementing this there is a Children’s Zone on the hill with a fun filled set of activities.
So unwind amongst the many stalls that will be in place for the days offering you great opportunities to browse, eat, and drink the afternoon away.
Fleet Arts will be there with an interactive art activity and are working with Belper School to make large heart sculptures.
Fleet Arts have also made some marine ply letters to make the word LOVE and will be running a drop-in creative activity on the day for people to add to these. They can then be varnished and will go on the back wall of the Fleet Arts car park as the inspiration and frame to their teenage mural which they are doing this summer.
