Neville Studio - Tickets: £12-£2


To celebrate Notts Pride 2019 we’re offering a host of events for all ages, every day from Wednesday 24 July until parade day on Saturday 27 July.

Join us for a fun drama workshop, engage your brain with out-of-the-box thoughtful drama Boxes, get out your rainbow-coloured pens for a writing masterclass, put on your platform boots for an outrageous cabaret evening, bring your little ones along to Drag Queen Story Time, then laugh out proud with stand-up comedian Sarah Keyworth’s Dark Horse.

Friday 26 July

Theatre Pride – part of Writing Proud’s Write Pride Festival 2019

Bonnie and The Bonnettes are a theatre company based in the North East. They like it when audiences laugh. They like it when they think. They really like it when they do both at the same time. They want to share stories, challenge perceptions, and have a good time whilst doing it. Their work is loud, fun, and unapologetic.

Writing Masterclass with Bonnie and The Bonnettes

Tickets: £5
For ages: 16+
The masterclass will include a combination of writing prompts, focussed writing time and professional advice from an experienced writer to support you in exploring LGBTQ themes in your writing.

Sarah Keyworth: Dark Horse

Sold out
Your last chance to see Sarah Keyworth’s debut hour Dark Horse before her new show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe next month. Nottingham-born, multi-award-winning, a rising star in the comedy scene: join Sarah as she tells you about her life with an important little girl and her battle against every expectation of what being a girl means. Think Girls Just Wanna Have Fun but British, deadpan and in no way similar.
