What we do

(Apart from Pride)


Have a look at the calendar at the bottom of this page

One off events

We arrange events to mark specific events or occasions or just because we want to.  Keep an eye on our event list below and our social media to be kept informed of these as and when they occur.

Drag Bingo

We are holding what we hope will be a continuing series of drag bingo events with the assistance of Thatcham Town Council.  If you thought bingo was for old ladies with blue rinses, think again, this will knock your socks off.

The Shop

At many of the events that we attend we also bring along the shop.  We sell items in order to raise additional money for Newbury Pride, many of which are created by members of the organisation or local producers.  Putting on the events that we do costs a lot of money and the shop helps us out a lot to reduce our need to rely on sponsorships and grants.

Thatcham Family Fun Day

For the second year running, Newbury Pride in partnership with Thatcham Town Council are working together to bring the colour and joyfulness of Pride to Thatcham Family Fun Day.

This is one of a number of initiatives that we have undertaken to widen the sphere of influence of Newbury Pride into the wider West Berkshire community and we have been working closely with Thatcham Town Council on some of these.

Thatcham Family Fun Day promises once again to be a fantastic family friendly event and this year with additional colour, sound and vibrancy that Pride brings.

We really hope that you will want to come along and join in the fun and frolics, take part in the workshops and take part in the mini parade.  Come along and meet us in the Rainbow Zone.

If you have made a flag at the family events we have held at the museum in Newbury or make one at home or at a workshop, come along and wave it with Pride and keep it for the event in Newbury only two weeks later.

Monthly Socials

Every month we invade a local hostelrie and transform it into a Pride friendly place.  There is always fun and laughter and often music and dancing and out own resident dancing queens make it such an enjoyable night.

See the list of events at the bottom of this page for our next and future events.

Sunday Brunches

Every month on a Sunday we hold a family friendly brunch at a local cafe or restaurant.  This is a way for Newbury Pride to show its commitment to the local community and everyone is welcome to join us whether they are LGBTQIA+ or not.

We cannot guarantee that the guests will always be as august as in this picture.

Support and Advice

We offer some advice, support and help on this page as well as places you can go to if we are not able to provide the assistance you need.  You can always contact us by email using the link at the bottom of the page.

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Every 20th November is the day dedicated to remembering the members of the Transgender community that have been lost to violence or suicide throughout the previous twelve months.  We hold, together with the local transgender support group https://ptbtiwb.co.uk, a vigil to commemorate this day on the Sunday nearest.  We invite local dignatories to meet and chat with us and perhaps get a better persepective on the community, but primarily it is a venue for people to come together and talk or perhaps just to reflect on those that have been lost.
