Northern Pride 2019

Bigger and Better for 2019

Durham and Northumberland Scouts will again be attending Northern Pride in Newcastle, on Saturday 20th July 2019. Every year there are more and more of us attending, to show how proud we are to be an inclusive and diverse organisation and this year we intend to make a lot of noise!

Date: Saturday 20th July, 2019
Times: Stall set up: Morning

Pride parade: 11.45am to 1pm (meeting at war memorial, near the Newcastle Civic Centre)

Scouting stall: afternoon, from after the parade (approximatetly 1pm) to 5pm

Locations: Pride Family and Youth Zone (including Scouting stall): Exhibition Park, Newcastle

Pride Parade: From Newcastle Civic Centre to Exhibition Park / Town Moor, Newcastle (meet at war memorial, west of the Civic Centre building)

Attending Pride events is a way of demonstrating our commitment to equality and building a more inclusive society, and showing that we openly welcome LGBT+ members. This is important to many of our LGBT+ adult and youth members - and all our members who believe in diversity and inclusion of all kinds, within our movement and within society. We encourage all adults to share this opportunity with their young people (to find out what our young people think about attending Pride you can read this article on the Scout Association website).

Attendance is open to all members, parent/carers, family and friends but please note:

  • All adult members (including Scout Network members) and Explorer Scout / Young Leaders are asked to register so that we know who is coming
  • Explorer Scouts / Young Leaders may attend without a parent / carer and will be supervised by our adult leaders at the event
  • Beavers Scouts / Cub Scouts / Scouts may attend with a parent / carer and their attendance should be registered by one of our adult members

Please use the form below to let us know that you are coming, who you are bringing with you and whether or not you would like to purchase a Scouting Pride tee-shirt (£6.00) or neckerchief (£9.50) to wear on the day (pick them up on the day). Note that we will send you a confirmation email with a link to copies of relevant consent forms, or you can download the consent forms online:

Unfortunately the deadline for ordering a tShirt and other merch has passed, but you're still welcome to sign up and celebrate pride with us.
