The Pride March leaves the castle area at 11am and proceeds through the city centre to Broad Street in Hockley where the enjoyment of stalls, live acts, djs and socialising takes place up to 6pm.
As a Pride March Steward you would be required for a few hours to support the safety of the march through the city centre. You are then free to enjoy the rest of the afternoon at your leisure.
We usually meet a few weeks prior to the event to give a full briefing on the day and allow you to meet with the other volunteers. We always have a Nottinghamshire Pride Volunteer Co-ordinator who is on hand as you apply and throughout the process to help with any questions.
If you are keen to take part in the march or just be a spectator without responsibility you can still get involved by helping us after the march collect a few coins from the Pride congregation in Hockley Village during the afternoon. As a free event, donations from the public are an important way to keep the event free for everyone in Nottinghamshire in years to come. The crowd are a friendly bunch who come to enjoy the festivities so usually don’t mind sparing a loose bit of change for their day out enjoying the entertainment and atmosphere.
Again we meet a few weeks prior to brief you and let you meet felloe volunteers on the day. Full access to Nottinghamshire Pride Volunteer Co-ordinator in the lead up to the event is granted for support and comfort!
Nottinghamshire Pride Committee support roles
For those wanting to play a bigger part we also welcome people to support the committee by helping with planning, co-ordinating the volunteer recruitment and networking with local business to drum up support. For this we ask for 4-5 hours a week generally for 12 weeks leading up to the event. To find out more please contact Craig Martin by email email@example.com
