Pride Chill Out Space

After the excitement of being on the float (or watching) at Pride, you’ll probably be ready for more fun, or alternatively very exhausted. Either way, the Chill Out Space is a great opportunity to hang out after the parade and get to know young people from groups all over the North-West! There’s plenty of great games, music, and food; and you’re also free to just relax and recharge.
