Gay Pride Week

Gay Pride Week is about to kick off, and with so many different events going on how are you meant to choose? Here at The Core we have decided to streamline all the happenings and select a few key events that you must attend. 

1. A Taste of Pride

The annual LGBT pride garden party showcases culinary fare from over 40 restaurants, and is always a great hit with attendees. As well as this there will be an open bar and a silent auction, so get a bit ‘merry’ and bid on some great restaurant deals.
