Hucknall Pride: First events revealed for historic first event in the town

Preparations are continuing apace for the first ever Hucknall Pride.

The historic event takes place over the bank holiday weekend of August 26 to 28 and is being organised by four of the town’s most popular pubs – Damo’s, the Red Lion, Byron’s Rest and the Half-Moon.

Earlier this month, an open public drop-in event was held for people to share ideas and suggestions and these are now being acted upon.

Posting on the Hucknall Pride Facebook page, organisers said: “Venues and business will soon be trimming up, flying the flag, painting the town and preparing for a fantastic August Bank Holiday weekend.
