About Abergavenny Pride

Our Story

Abergavenny Pride was established in 2019 when Kate and Elaine McCulloch, along with Jo Webb, discussed how there was a lack of visible LGBTQ+ presence in the town. Elaine posted on a local Facebook group asking if there was interest in a pride event being set up in Abergavenny and whether anyone would like to be involved in creating one.

After a significant amount of interest, Amy Pope, Anneliese Cheadle and Frankie Wesson were quickly brought onto the team, along with other supporting members and planning was underway. Within 5 months the first Abergavenny Pride was held on July 6th 2019.

It was a successful day with 200 people in attendance at the Abergavenny Community Centre celebrating the occasion.

  • True meaning of what Pride should be

    I truly loved the event, wasn’t commercialised and had a true meaning of what Pride should be. Friendly and welcoming

  • It was amazing

    Really lovely feel, considering this was the first year it was amazing. These things take a lot of effort to make happen. Would be lovely if it got bigger
