We are proud to announce that we are sponsoring Pride Canterbury 2021. We began our sponsorship of Pride Canterbury from its conception in 2016, and we’re so excited to be able to once again celebrate this joyful event with our Canterbury community.

This year’s festivities are planned to take place in-person on Saturday 11 September, with a parade through Canterbury High Street and live entertainment in the Dane John Gardens. 

Over the years we have become a key partner of Pride Canterbury and have supported the event in many ways. This year, we are working with Pride Canterbury on a student internship looking at improving the sustainability of the event.  

We have a thriving LGBT+ staff network and LGBT+ student society at Christ Church, and this sponsorship is part of the dynamic range of activities and support we offer to our LGBT+ community and allies.  

Pride Canterbury is a wonderful event that allows us to show support for each other without discrimination or prejudice, to bond as a community, and come together to celebrate equality and progress. We look forward to celebrating with you in September. 

We’re delighted that Canterbury Christ Church University is again sponsoring Pride Canterbury – the ongoing support from Christ Church is vital to our Pride event, and it’s great to be able to collaborate with the University in celebrating Canterbury’s LGBT+ community.
