THE RED RIBBON MINI FEST, raising money for World Aids Day and Newcastle Pride 2018
 
Advance Tickets £5, pay on the door £7
 
This mini festival will bring together live music, cabaret and drag performances, guest speakers, a mini market and a bar serving an array of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The event will not only be fun and informative, it’ll have universal appeal, so make sure you get your tickets now!
 
All proceeds from the tickets and money raised on the night will be split equally between Northern Pride and NAT who organise and lead the way on World Aids Day.
 
WHAT IS WORLD AIDS DAY?
 
World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
 
WHY IS WORLD AIDS DAY IMPORTANT?
 
Over 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK. Globally, there are an estimated 36.7 million people who have the virus. Despite the virus only being identified in 1984, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.
 
Today, scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. Despite this, each year in the UK around 6,000 people are diagnosed with HIV, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others, and stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with the condition.
 
World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.
 
So come and join us on Friday 1st December, from 7pm for what is expecting to be a brilliant night and fantastic fundraising opportunity.
 
With thanks from Northern Pride, NAT and our hosts for the night Hidden Heights.
