Event description

Description


Thank you for wanting to be part of Pride in London with all the Jewish groups this year!

As a security precaution, Pride in London require all Parade marchers to wear a wristband in order to march in this year's Pride Parade. KeshetUK has been granted the wristbands on behalf of the Jewish groups and is coordinating registration for these on a strictly first come first served basis. This year we have only been allocated 80 wristbands - so please do register early to avoid disappointment.

In previous years we have had feedback that Pride in London has not been accessible to those who are not able to stand or walk for the distance of the Parade. As last year, WLS have generously sponsored the Jewish presence at Pride in London and loaned a minibus which should offer those riding inside to enjoy the parade route alongside those marching on foot. If you would like to request a space on the minibus, please do tick the relevant box when registering for your wristband and we will get back to you to discuss your needs. Please do email us if you want more information about this: info@keshetuk.org.

You can register for these free wristbands now.

A KeshetUK representative will contact the person registering to confirm details (times and exact location to meet are still TBC) closer to the time.

We will need some volunteers on the day and would love your help if you can! The main role is to be one of our 'wheel stewards'. This means you get to join the parade with us, being between our minibus and walking group and be part of the fun! This would require you to arrive earlier than others and during the parade being near the wheels of our minibus to ensure the safety of those on board and also those around it. If you would like to be one of our 'wheel stewards' please check the box when you register for tickets and if you have any questions please email info@keshetuk.org.

If you have a wristband and are no longer attening please return it through eventbrite OR email info@keshetuk.org to let us know you won't be attending and it will be given to the first person on the wait list. We do have a growing waiting list!

Wristbands will be available for collection from KeshetUK volunteers (according to registration details) from our pre-Pride meeting point which is still to be confirmed. Wristbands will not be avilable for collection prior to the event.

If you have any questions - please do let us know and we look forward to seeing you at Pride in London!



FAQs


Which Jewish groups will be marching and do I have to be a member of one to join in?

To march with us in Pride in London you don't need to be a member of any of the groups that are all joining together for the Parade. You can come on your own, with your friends and on the day you'll hopefully make new friends!

Some of the groups coming together include (this list will be added to):

Is there a minimum age requirement to attend Pride in London?

No. There is no minimum age to attend Pride in London. KeshetUK does not take responsibility for those attending and if you're under 18, however, you will need to be accomopanied by a responsible adult. Also please note - everyone (including children and babies) is required to register for a wristband.

Pride in London is open to everyone! And anyone who wants to create an inclusive Jewish community is welcome to march with us (subject to availability)! This year we will have a minibus for those who would like to take part but walking/standing for that long presents an accesibility issue. If you're interested in a seat in the minibus - please do register for a wrist band and email us at info@keshetuk.org.

I am planing to go to Synagogue on the Saturday?

We have been given an earlier slot than we had expected, but they have assured us we won't be leaving our space in the parade until all those we know are going to synagogue have reached us. However, half our group will already be in the parade around 12.30pm. If you are planning to go to synagogue and you have already registered for a wristband - please email info@keshetuk.org to let us know! Otherwise, we might redistribute your wristband thinking you aren't coming.

I've never been to a Pride Parade before - what should I do to prepare, what should I wear or bring along on the day?

Just bringing yourself is enough but here is a list of things to consider!

- Check the weather: You might want to prepare for a rainstorm or a heat wave! It's London in July after all - so we just never know whether it's sunglasses or umbrella weather (or both..).

- Noise makers: whistles, gregers, your voices! It's a fun day and some chants, singing and whistle always go down well!

- Snacks: We can spend some time standing around and you might get a bit hungry!

- LGBT+ flags/banners/placards: Always worth seeing if you've got rainbow (or other LGBT+) flags hidden away somewhere - perfect opportunity to fly them!

- Clothing: Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in! Whether that's jeans and a tshirt, ball gown, colourful clothing or not. Pride is about you being you and that means wearing whatever you feel best in.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We will have a list of names.


Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No. We have a large waiting list and so we ask that you let us know if you can't come either through Eventbrite or by emailing us.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email info@keshetuk.org if you have any questions.
