Manchester DJ legend Rob Bright at Levenshulme Pride Night Market

EXCITING NEWS: On the decks for our upcoming night market on Friday 17th August will be Manchester DJ legend Rob Bright!

Rob cut his teeth in the Manchester club scene of the early nineties, making his name as a key resident with the legendary club night Bugged Out for over a decade, a regular at Electric Chair, Electric Soul warehouse parties and various clubs and festivals around the world. The perfect keeper of all things D I S C O for our Levenshulme Pride disco night market!

Urban sketching at Levenshulme Pride

Urban Sketching during Levenshulme Pride…!

I’m hoping to get together a small group of people who like drawing, to produce some work during Levenshulme Pride. We’ll meet at 6pm on the Friday evening at the Klondyke at the start of the Pride weekend, and then set out, drawing everything that goes on through the three days of fun and stuff – reconvening at 12 on the Sunday to see what we’ve produced in all our different media and styles. Who’s in?

Levenshulme Pride March 2018

The Levenshulme Pride March will start at Levenshulme Inspire at 14.00 on Saturday 18th August and proceed down the A6 to Shine Hair. Inspire to Shine!

The March is open to everyone and will be a guided walk along the pavements with marshalls. Last year we had almost 400 people take to the streets celebrating Levenshulme Pride in an amazing display of community spirit and solidarity.

Come along, make friends and help us turn the A6 into the Gay6.
