Buxton Pride Picnic 2020
Saturday 18th July
14:00 – 17:00
Pavilion Gardens, Buxton
Find us on the lawns in front of the Swimming Pool
( Festival Fringe venue 33n)
Are you ready?
Have you started trimming your best hats, practising your flouncing?
Time now, perhaps, for a quick bit of cake rehearsal: how camp can you make that dish? How frivolous? How full of the trauma, despair and passion of Pride? Or maybe just bake a wonderful Gay Forest Gateaux
A summer afternoon, fancy hats, wonderful cakes, fabulous people: Buxton’s Pride Picnic is back for its 4th feast, a celebration of the town’s LGBTQ+ community. Join us for laughter, conversation, new friends, old tarts. Bring your own picnic, maybe bake a cake for our Big Gay Bake Off.
More details will follow
And no, we don’t know if we’ll be able to do this wonderful event. We don’t know if Buxton Festival Fringe will happen this year. The International Festival has cancelled but with more local acts and locally organised events, we are hoping the Fringe will go ahead. If it is safe to gather, with or without Festivals (we’ll probably have our own Fringes), we will Picnic. We may have to picnic at Appropriate Distances and possibly organise some rainbow coloured semaphore flags to send messages of solidarity and cake to picnic enclaves scattered across the garden. We may even end up facetiming picnics from back gardens and front rooms across the High Peak, but we will Picnic as only Pride people can.
Stay safe. Be well
