Eastgate partners Basildon Pride

Eastgate is proud to announce it is a new Official Partner for Basildon Pride, the town’s annual celebration of inclusion, diversity and equality.

The shopping centre is one of Basildon Pride’s new partners and sponsors as we begin June’s international Pride Month.

And Eastgate will be backing Basildon Pride at the town’s Pride Festival on Saturday September 3. The Festival is free to enter and takes place all day with great live acts, delicious food, interesting talks and fun for the whole family.

The Basildon Pride Parade marches from Basildon Town Centre to the Basildon Pride Festival site in Gloucester Park, passing through Eastgate en route.

Ian Clark, Eastgate’s centre manager, said: “What Basildon Pride has achieved since it started in 2018 is phenomenal. We’re proud to be a partner and supporter for all they do and look forward to celebrating with them during Pride Month and the Basildon Pride Festival.”

David Burton-Sampson, Chair of Basildon Pride, said: “Eastgate have been an active and long-standing supporter of Basildon Pride so I’m delighted that they have decided to extend that support by becoming an Official Partner alongside Fiserv this year. We’re looking forward to exciting times ahead in celebrating diversity and equality throughout the borough.”
