We are a small team first brought together in the early part of 2016 where we organised the Hastings Pride Launch Party.

Following on from the success of the Launch Party in 2016 we then went on to set up Hastings Pride CIC as a not for profit organisation.

When drawing up our governing documents we made sure that Hastings Pride would always be a free event. We felt that charging people would detract and arguably prevent us from our primary goal of breaking down the social barriers which exist within society today.

Hastings Pride CIC was incorporated in March 2017 as a stand-alone Community Interest Company.
