13th September 2010: Worcester Pride / Brewery Tap Critical Update

Hello All, It is with great sadness that the Worcester Pride Forum wishes to announce a final decision to cancel “Celebration of LGBT Life” which were planned to be held at the Brewery Tap, 50 Lowesmoor, Worcester on 17th through to the 19th September 2010.

Several factors have been against us which have directly influenced the decision made today.

1.   Necessary work being carried out by EON Energy in Lowesmoor, affecting all local businesses. This work is necessary for the redevelopment work currently being undertaken. This has been scheduled for 17th September 2010 which will leave the venue without electricity until an estimated 12 midnight, should this work suffer any setbacks (which are beyond our control) it could also infringe onto the daytime and possible evening of the 18th September 2010.

2.   Several of our community contributors/traders and entertainment acts are travelling from national locations to attend the Brewery Tap for these celebrations, and it would be unfair to allow this with no definite provision available.

3.   On this basis, it is impossible to safely open the venue to the general public without a stable electricity supply.

4.   Additionally refurbishment work being undertaken at the Brewery Tap has not been completed and signed off by regulatory bodies needed to open; final contract work planned for 17th has also been placed on hold, therefore delaying the opening of the venue and impacting on both Worcester Pride Celebrations and the opening of the Brewery Tap.

Worcester Pride Forum and The Brewery Tap wishes to apologise to all our friends/customers for this sad news and inconvenience it may cause.

An update as to the completion of the Brewery Tap venue and at last some GOOD NEWS will be released very shortly.

**Latest News** Fantastic news from the Worcester Pride Forum – We have new sponsors and supporters joining us.

More news to follow on this development with a Launch Party, showcasing our new sponsors coming soon!

10th Jan 2010 - After a productive and supportive meeting with the leisure company which runs Worcester Racecourse "Pitchcroft" we have taken advice and reconsidered the original planned date in June 26th and changed it to a NEW PLANNED DATE "18th September 2010", the decision to change to this new date was based on accessibility of the grassed area, coupled with the increased risk of flooding in June.
