Equality Parade and Community Day
28th July 2018
Sheppey Promenade Festival highlight is the Equality Parade through Sheerness High St on the theme of the Suffrage movement and its relevance to us today. We celebrate the progress that women have made in the last 100 years and highlight issues still to be fought for.
The Parade is open to all, individual men, women, boys & girls as well as organisations. Some will be wearing costume e.g. long skirts and big hats with sashes in the Suffragette colours of purple, white and green.
Alternatively come along in your everyday clothing with or without banners or flags demonstrating your particular concerns, for instance the #METOO campaign, you will be equally welcome.
