A special exhibition telling the story of Pride Canterbury opens at the Beaney on Saturday (8 August).

With this year’s Pride celebration in the city cancelled due to Covid-19, the exhibition provides a Pride experience through photographs, film and other features instead.

Visitors will be able to see exclusive Pride items, uncover the behind the scenes story of host Delilah Tickles (below) and follow the rainbow road to learn about Stonewall, the origin of Prides and the history of Drag.

Highlights of previous Prides will be playing on the big screen and people can also leave their messages of hope via the interactive exhibit.

The exhibition has been put together by Pride Canterbury with the support of the team at the Beaney and Canterbury City Council. It is sponsored by Canterbury Christ Church University and Canterbury Business Improvement District, with further financial support from Kent Community Foundation and the government’s Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund.

It runs in the Special Exhibitions Gallery from Saturday 8 August to Wednesday 9 September (closed on Mondays). Entrance is free with donations encouraged. More details are available on the Beaney’s website.
