Owing to unprecedented levels of demand for community stalls and workshop spaces at this year’s UK Black Pride at the Ministry of Sound, on Saturday 18 August, the event’s organisers are unable to take any more bookings for either stalls or workshops.
UK Black Pride’s Director for Administration, Dr. Beverly Duguid, said: “We realise that this will disappoint many of our partners who did not manage to get applications or payments in on time, but every square inch we could has been allocated.”
Those organisations that have been allocated a stall – who submitted an application form and correct payment on time – have been notified using the email provided to confirm if their stall application has been successful.
Those organisations that have been allocated a workshop – who submitted an application form on time – have been notified using the email provided to confirm if their workshop application has been successful.
