City & Country Support the Manningtree Pride Event

We were thrilled to have partnered with Manningtree Has Pride 2024 to support the local LGBTQ+ community and charity partners The Outhouse, Colchester Kings RFC, and Hic Sumu’s choir. The not-for-profit event took place across 12 venues in Manningtree on Saturday 15th June between 12pm-6pm. Taking place for the second year in a row, we provided funds towards their advertising and entertainment during the various events. Visitors experienced family fun including live music, DJ sets, children’s entertainment, beach games, conversations with queer authors, seminars, and much more. Ticketed drag, burlesque, and comedy shows also took place at the Red Lion pub on the evening of 14th and 15th June.

Rowan Hunter, organiser of Manningtree Has Pride, commented: “It was exciting to partner with a local Essex business and receive support from City & Country for the work we do to educate and entertain local communities. As part of our mission, we work to raise awareness, promote inclusivity, and celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and diversity within the community.”

Shelley West, our Sales & Marketing Director, added: “We were honoured to be partnering with Manningtree Has Pride, and support such an important event local to our new Manningtree Park development. We believe that communities should be inclusive, and this is a shining example of how a community can be celebrated.”

All profits from the event were donated to three local LGBTQ+ charities and community groups. To donate, visit the Manningtree Has Pride JustGiving page.
