Dr Chris Stephens, Director of the Holburne Museum said: 

I am delighted that, for the first time, the Holburne will be celebrating Pride. I am especially excited that this event has been proposed and developed by the Holburne Future Collective. It demonstrates how important it is for the Holburne to have this group of young people enthusiastically engaging with the museum and enriching our programme. I hope this will become an annual event that will grow over time.
