There will also be singers, speakers, DJ's, a craft stall, face painting, activities for kids, a well-being and info hub, food and drink stalls and the 'pink pooch dog parade'. The day starts with an hour-long mini-Pride, produced by LGBTQIA+ young people from Calderdale. Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE will host the day. 

Happy Valley Pride artistic director, Tim Whitehead said, "The Big Day Out is always a highlight for Happy Valley Pride. We have a great line up this year and hope to see lots of people come together to celebrate LGBTQIA+ life in the valley!"
