WITH the Isle of Wight's UK Pride celebrations just around the corner, a host of events will be held at the Apollo Theatre next week.

An eclectic mix of musicians, story tellers, poets and performers will take to the stage in support of Pride next Tuesday (July 17), between 4pm and 6.30pm.

The event has been organised by Donna Jones and each performer will have a fifteen minute slot, making for an exciting, fast paced programme ahead of RedTIE Theatre's Queer Bash.

Returning for its third run as part of Isle of Wight Pride's Arts Week at the Apollo, the Queer Bash, featuring fresh content and new voices celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, takes place at 8pm next Thursday and Friday (July 19 and 20).

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Isle of Wight Pride charity.
