Bromley’s Disability Pride event is set to return on Sunday, December 2, from 2.30pm till 4.30pm at the Bromley Civic Centre (Great Hall).

This follows the great success of the first Bromley Disability Pride in 2017 – where comedian Laurence Clark performed alongside local disabled performers.

Disabled people’s organisation and organisers of Disability Pride XbyX had great feedback from the performers and audience last year and have been working to meet the demand for the event to become an annual fixture.

Bromley Disability Pride will again be held during UK Disability History Month. The event is a celebration of disability aiming to encourage disabled people to express their identity positively and to help break down the stigma attached to disability.

The 2018 event will feature performances from deaf hip-hop artist SignKid Walker, an appearance by Paralympic gold medallist Susie Rodgers and the return of Disability Pride 2017 headline act Magpie Dance.

The celebration event will also include a section giving disabled people a platform to showcase their individual and collective talents (if you have a talent and would like to be part of the event email

Barry McDonald, project co-ordinator from XbyX said: “It’s really great to be putting on Disability Pride for the second time in Bromley – it can really help as a showcase for a positive understanding of disability. Thank you to Clarion Housing and Clarion Futures for supporting the 2018 event.”
