Happy Valley tickets

Happy Valley Pride is an eclectic, alternative and inclusive, week-long festival for everyone. Celebrating LGBT+ life in Hebden Bridge and surrounding areas it will be taking place the week of 22 to 28 July 2019.

Yay! It’s Happy Valley Pride 2019. On Stonewall Eve - We’re thrilled to announce a hugely exciting week of comedy, gigs, clubbing, crazy cabaret shows, performance, discussion and so much more. After the clamour for tickets last year, homo honky tonkers Duckie are back; we have the brilliant, lesbian comedian Suzi Ruffell making her Hebden debut; FLUID — a night of queer and trans spoken word; London legend Jonny Woo bringing the looks and glamour; and the big, free weekend events — there is something for everybody.

It’s time to celebrate the LGBT+ community but also to reflect: it’s 50 years since the Stonewall riots, 50 years since a black, trans, sex worker called Marsha P Johnson started the Pride movement and galvanized our community. She inspired us to make a stand and show the world that love is love. We’re really proud to have been chosen as one of 30 Pride festivals nationwide that Stonewall will visit as part of their anniversary year. In these times where hate crime against our community is on the rise and the far right seem to

be gaining momentum, it’s more important than ever that we stand up and make our big queer voices heard — we’re brothers, sisters, friends, partners and lovers and we have amazing allies. We are here to say that we’ll never shrink in to the background, let’s shine a light throughout Calderdale and become the Happy Valley Tribe — Be Here, Be You, Be Proud.

Tickets are available via the link below.
