Brighton Pride is taking place on Saturday 1 August 2015. The theme is ‘Carnival of Diversity’. The NUT bus will be participating in the parade again this year. For further information about getting involved please contact email@example.com .
The NUT will again be taking part in the parade with an open top double decker bus. We are asking Young Members to get involved in helping us decorate and be on the bus. This is a great, lively event and really shows the NUT commitment to equality. This year, the parade theme is “Carnival of diversity” and we are looking to decorate the bus. We decorated the bus last year around the theme of “The Worlds a disco” and “freedom to live”
