Red Funnel sponsors Isle of Wight Pride

03-07-2017  It's time to get ready to celebrate as the Isle of Wight welcomes its first ever Pride event - the only one in the UK to be held on a beach. Red Funnel Ferries are proud to be rainbow sponsors of the inaugural IW Pride, which takes place on Saturday 15th July.

Isle of Wight Pride will be an inclusive, family-friendly, all-day event, kicking off with a colourful parade through the heart of the Victorian seaside town of Ryde. The party will continue at Harbour Beach near Ryde's Eastern Gardens, with live music, talks and performances. Visitors can enjoy great food, soak up the atmosphere in the Pride village and explore the family fun area. An after-party follows for those wanting to make a night of it.

Entry to the day's events is free but pre-registration is required as tickets are limited. Tickets to the evening after-party – running from 8pm - 3am at The Balcony venue and featuring live music from many acts including The Freemasons – are priced at £15 per person (18+ only).

Red Funnel is offering a 15% discount off vehicle crossings from Southampton and £10 foot passenger tickets for both day and short-break returns between Friday 14th and Monday 17th July for IW Pride goers.
