Become a business sponsor for Pride in the Park 2019!

15 February 2019

Cheshire East Council will once again be hosting its Pride in the Park event this summer, in celebration of the LGBT+ community.

Ahead of this celebration, Cheshire East Council is calling on businesses to invest in diversity and get their brand seen, by supporting the event and becoming a sponsor for Pride in the Park 2019.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a large commercial organisation, small-to-medium enterprise, community group or individual, there are many ways that you can give your backing to this major event in the Cheshire East calendar.

Supporting this event sends a strong message that your business genuinely cares about and supports the community, and the positive change that Pride represents.

This year the event will take place from 2pm-8pm on Saturday 29 June at Queens Park, Crewe, and will be free to visitors of all ages, offering lots of family-friendly entertainment and performances on the day.

Confide in Kylie – a Kylie Minogue tribute act, has been confirmed as one of the key headline acts so far, with further acts yet to be announced.

Councillor Stewart Gardiner, champion for equality and diversity said: “Once again this will be a fantastic event for all members of Cheshire East’s LGBTQ+ community and our very welcome visitors from further afield.”

“Your business can be part of this really memorable day, and you will gain very positive brand- recognition for your company by supporting Pride.”

Councillor Liz Wardlaw, Cheshire East Council cabinet member with responsibility for equality and diversity, said: “I have no doubt that this year’s event will be even bigger than last years, and I’m so pleased that this is becoming an annual celebration in our borough.”

“With equality, diversity and inclusion a huge priority for Cheshire East Council and for our communities, we are looking forward to working with businesses to make a huge success of Pride in the Park 2019.”

There are a range of sponsorship packages available to those who are interested in getting involved, starting at a violet package for £300, up to a red package for £10,000.
