Holburne Pride

Holburne Pride

Save the dates! This summer the Holburne Museum is celebrating PRIDE for the first time…

Over two days the Holburne Museum’s PRIDE event aims to increase the engagement of the local community with Queer arts and culture through talks, creative workshops, films, cabaret, and silent discos.

Exclusively programmed by the Holburne Future Collective in partnership with Bath Arts Collective, they will deliver a rich and diverse programme aimed at a large cross section of audiences.

Dr Chris Stephens, Director of the Holburne Museum said: 

I am delighted that, for the first time, the Holburne will be celebrating Pride. I am especially excited that this event has been proposed and developed by the Holburne Future Collective. It demonstrates how important it is for the Holburne to have this group of young people enthusiastically engaging with the museum and enriching our programme. I hope this will become an annual event that will grow over time.
