Doncaster Pride 2021

There is continued uncertainty about major events due to the pandemic. Well beyond June 21st and even into August it is likely that measures will be required for large events. These could include social distancing, face coverings, constant full site cleansing and limits to crowd numbers, we may even be required to provide full seating and table service. 

 Doncaster Pride is a large event and we are advised that it will be affected. We feel implementing these kind of measures, not to mention lack of clarity with just over 12 weeks to the event means we have to change the plans for this year. A park full of restrictions isn’t Pride to us and we think you’ll agree it’s not what you want either. 

Any measures would significantly increase costs and as Pride is paid for by business sponsorship and fundraising the spiralling costs are a concern. The current economic recovery means sponsorship is a challenge and of course we’ve had no fundraisers in the last 12 months. 

What we must do is protect Pride for the future and not risk the reserves we hold by planning an event that may have to be restricted or cancelled, potentially losing us large sums of money. 

Doncaster Pride is a free event and we always want to keep it that way, so it is with regret we’ve taken the decision to postpone the HUGE plans until 2022 when we know we can come back with the best Pride ever. 

We are disappointed and we know you will be, but we have to take what we feel is the right decision for the future of Doncaster Pride – we hope you understand.
 
BUT…. we are very committed to Doncaster Pride 21 going ahead even though it will have to be different – so here are the plans for Pride 2021.     

Welcome to Pride Week 
2nd – 7th August 2021

The whole of Doncaster is being encouraged to get involved. Whether that’s places of work, cafes, pubs, libraries or shops… anywhere really! 

We want to hear from anyone that wants to host an event and we need your help to spread the word. We will gather all the details together into one Doncaster Pride Week Programme. 

We have flags we’re happy to supply to any venue that will help us celebrate Pride week by hosting an event and all we ask is they tell us what’s happening so that we can add them to the official list of Pride 21 activities in our Pride Programme. 

On Saturday 7 August there will be a number of town-centre venues hosting Pride 21 events. These will all feature acts that we would have had on this year’s main stage, drag hosts and of course, no Doncaster Pride would be complete without Miss Penny - who will be touring ALL the town centre venues and performing short sets. 

So, not one park venue but numerous smaller venues for you to choose from and we’ll publish in advance full details of all the programmes and performance times so you can decide where you want to be. 
We’ve approached the council to put up the rainbow flags for the week as normal and we hope to be able to have events going on all week in all four corners of Doncaster. 

So we get to meet up with friends and celebrate Pride but just in a different way. We’d love you all to get involved, get your local pub, your place of work or even your favourite café to plan an event and ask them to get in touch with us for more details. email us at info@doncasterpride.co.uk

This year we need YOU all to help US to deliver the very best Doncaster Pride we can, one where we can meet up and enjoy the visibility and celebration of the community in the communities we all live.
