Pride Events – national and local

Our presence at the growing number of local Pride events up and down the country reflects the central importance of equalities to our Union. In accordance with the practice adopted in 2015, we will again be centrally funding the pride events in Brighton, Manchester, London and Newcastle. Local officers can order ‘Pride crates’ for events in their areas which will contain pride liveried flags, whistles, garlands and LGBT+ and trans leaflets.

In order to keep within the budget constraints, we will be charging a nominal fee of £30.00 so that local associations and divisions will benefit from the economies of scale available to the national Union for bulk orders of the materials.

To order your pride crate, please email rachel.baxter@neu.org.uk with the date of your event, delivery address and a contact number.
