Swindon & Wiltshire Pride have released further details of the popular Old Town event, and are encouraging you to get creative with the news that the family-friendly Arts Zone will return.
Chairman Kristian Wheelersaid, “It’s really important to us that we create an event that appeals to all ages, and every year we get so many families come along together to enjoy the day which is really special. We’re excited to team up with the fantastic team at No Added Sugar for the return of our popular Arts Zone. They will be on hand to guide you through activities including painting, clay masks or felting in a fun and inclusive environment.“
The Arts Zone will be open to all ages and free to take part, thanks to the support of a grant from the Wiltshire Community Foundation, an independent charity that gives grants and funding to the voluntary sector and charities across Wiltshire and Swindon.
Toni from No Added Sugar, said “No Added Sugar are proud to be invited back once again to deliver family activities at the Art Zone at Pride 2019. Swindon & Wiltshire Pride provides a wonderful atmosphere for families to sit and be creative together. Families return each year to take part in free actives provided by Pride and the LGBT community to promote inclusion. Come and join us for a fun relaxing afternoon.”
