Large pride event postponed in Worcester

The first large-scale Pride event planned for Worcester has been postponed until next year.

Organisers of Worcester Pride 2010 said the 'new period of austerity' had led to many bodies which had pledged support having to revise their budgets.

It said it had also become apparent that there was less support than anticipated from other organisations.

It said planning will continue for 2011 with some smaller venues still being used for 2010.

Rather than Worcester Pride taking place on 18 September, it will now run from 17 to 19 September with a series of mini events.

Pride events are a celebration of gay and lesbian cultures.
