Silloth Pride 2019
On Saturday 29th June 2019, Silloth Rotary Club held the first ever Silloth Pride event on Silloth Green. Thousand’s of people flocked to Silloth Green to help celebrate the LGBT+ community. The day was started off by Malcolm Grainger deputy mayor of Allerdale welcoming everyone and wishing everyone a successful day.
The Green was awash with colour as the crowds headed to the stage to enjoy a full day of entertainment, which started with the amazing Willow Jarvis. There were seven hours of entertainment including Mama Sang and the Robot, Jewels of the Dessert belly dancers and much more. The fun didn’t stop there, with circus skills workshops, graffiti and dance workshops, local crafts, support from the local emergency services including the police and crime commissioner who said “It was a brilliant event” and fun fair. Sue Hayman MP also joined in the “carnival atmosphere” as she described and took to the stage to say a few words about the event.
