Fabulous and celebratory, hotfoot it to RHS Garden Bridgewater this April for a special one-day Pride in Nature event.

Expect a variety of workshops, talks and activities happening throughout the day.

The event, which has been inspired by the Natural England Online Pride in Nature Conference, is an exciting first for RHS Gardens. Recognising the LGBTQIA+ community in Salford and the wider Greater Manchester area, Pride in Nature seeks to share the experiences of members of the community who work in horticulture and the environmental sector.

With an action-packed programme for all ages, visitors to Pride in Nature can expect a variety of workshops, talks and activities happening throughout the day.

West Yorkshire-based Landscape designer and writer, Jack Wallington will chair a Q&A panel event to discuss issues and opportunities in the sector. The panel will also look at some of the challenges facing LGBTQIA+ inclusivity and we can work together to create a more diverse horticultural industry.

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking and conversation, with workshops and performances happening throughout the day too. Dance lovers should be sure to check out the Vogue workshop with the celebrated dancer and choreographer Stuart Bowden.

Pure magic in the stunning surroundings of RHS Garden Bridgewater.

Packed with fun and fabulousness for families of all ages, with Drag Queen Story Time and a hands-on workshop with artist Sian E Absalom where little creatives can enjoy making their own natural flower wand. Pure magic in the stunning surroundings of RHS Garden Bridgewater.

The event is free to enter with garden admission. RHS Members and under 5’s go free.
