Proud headline sponsor of Pride in Cheltenham 2024

13 May 2024

We’re excited to announce that Willans is headline sponsor of Pride in Cheltenham 2024, which returns to Imperial Gardens on Saturday 18 May for a fifth year.

The event, which takes place from 12pm until 6pm, aims to ensure the voices of the LGBTQIA+ community in our town are heard, and to stand up to discrimination and hate.

Following a Pride march, which will assemble outside John Lewis at 11.15am and make its way along the High Street and the Promenade to Imperial Square, there will be live music throughout the afternoon, as well as the eagerly anticipated Pride dog show. The Willans main stage will be headlined by 90s dance music diva Angie Brown and RuPaul’s drag race contestant Copper Topp and hosted by Kara Von Site.

Speaking about the news, our managing partner, Bridget Redmond said: “We are delighted to be headline sponsor of Pride in Cheltenham 2024. As a law firm, we proudly celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and Pride in its mission to highlight and eradicate discrimination and inequality.”

Tom O’Riordan, one of our internal LGBTQIA+ champions and partner in our wills, trusts & probate team, said: “I feel extremely lucky to work for a firm actively celebrating Pride, as I know many LGBTQIA+ lawyers around the world are not fortunate enough to be able to say that. It really demonstrates Willans’ supportive and inclusive culture.

“To me, Pride is an opportunity to reflect on our history, bring the community and our allies together and let everyone shine in their own unique way.”

Members of our teams will be on hand to talk to event-goers throughout the day. Please come along to the Willans stand to say hello, or to find out more about how we can help you.
