We are all so excited about the Disability Pride Event that will take place at The Forum, Norwich, this September! The event will be a celebration of disabled people and the diversity of our community.
It will showcase local artists, performers and speakers highlighting skills and abilities of disabled people and challenging negative stereotypes. There will be a marketplace bringing together individuals, groups and businesses to engage with disabled people, opening up conversations and opportunities to develop inclusive services and activities. You can find out about the days events here: https://equallives.org.uk/get-involved/disability-pride/disability-pride-whats-happening-on-the-day/
The event is free to attend and The Forum has good transport links, is accessible and has blue badge parking. There will be an accessible Mobiloo toilet available which offers a hoist and bench and there are Changing Places available at Intu Chapelfield and Vauxhall Community Hub.
Disability Pride is being run in partnership with Equal Lives, The Forum, Norwich City Council, Norfolk County Council and University of East Anglia with many other businesses offering support and involvement.
There will also be additional events running a week either side of the main event in support of Disability Pride and you can find out about these here: https://equallives.org.uk/get-involved/disability-pride/disability-pride-fringe-events/
