Join us in support of Reading Pride on Saturday 3 September
Wednesday, 31 August 2016
On Saturday 3 September the University of Reading and RUSU will join together in support of Reading Pride– we hope to see as many of you there as possible!
Festivities will kick off with the Pride Parade– starting at 11:00am, the parade will travel through Reading town centre before arriving at Kings Meadow, the site of the Reading Pride Festival.
We’ll be taking part in the parade, and would love to be joined by our colleagues and students. The parade starts from Reading Train Station at 11:00am– we’ll be assembling outside the station before it begins, so come and meet us by our University banner. The parade will arrive at Kings Meadow for 12:00pm.
At the Festival we’ll be holding our first ever University stall in the Pride market place, open from 12:00pm–6:30pm. Here, we’ll be highlighting our commitment to LGBT equality for students, staff and the wider community. There’ll also be free giveaways and information on the University’s LGBT support networks and historical connections.
Now in its thirteenth year, Reading Pride is set to be a fun and entertaining day for all. The Festival will feature a full line-up of entertainment throughout the day as well as a funfair, youth area, market stalls and a wide range of tasty food and drink. Full details can be found at https://readingpride.co.uk/pride.
If you have any questions about joining the Parade, please contact Frances Raimo.
We look forward to seeing you there!
