The Hive in partnership with SAND invites the public to join in this year’s celebration of LGBT+ History for a festival of events. This year’s festival offers a bumper programme of events including, a photographic exhibition, a presentation and discussion on the legendary York Lesbian Arts Festival (1998- 2008), live solo performance from writer and dramatist Mark Farrelly, sharing of stories, a film screening and disco.

Running between the 15th - 17th March at The Hive, the festival aims to provide LGBT+ individuals a chance to come together and celebrate past stories
and shared history. SAND Director, Sal Hampson says, ‘As an Arts Charity, The

Hive is well situated to host these events. It routinely delivers wellbeing projects across Shropshire, and the venue space, which accommodates creative activities, gigs, films and art exhibitions is
perfect for delivering different elements of the festival.’

SAND is a local community organisation whose goal is to improve the experiences and increase the expectations of LGBT+ people as they age in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. If you would like to find out more about SAND please
