“Cleckhaton has never had a pride event before, so get your rainbow flag out and let’s do this. We want everyone to feel equal and involved when they come into the town.

“We are very diverse and inclusive, especially within our own team. Other local businesses are getting involved, not just the pubs, as shop fronts are being decorated in Pride colours. I feel like we are giving something back to our community.

“It’s the first event for the town. We are not expecting a parade but different venues will be putting events on.

“At The Loft, we’re going to be having a full day open to under 18s until 8pm where they can come down with their families.”

Pride Cleckheaton will take place on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8.
