Headlining the main stage this year is none other than 90’s dance sensation ‘PHATS & SMALL’, Ben Ofoedu.

For the first time ever a full road closure will be in place for the parade to walk from the Worksop Train Station, along Carlton Road, passing through Victoria Square and Watson’s Road junctions, onto Bridge Place/Street, and concluding the march by joining the main event on old Market Square.

Founder and Event organiser Crystal Lucas was recently awarded a Certification of Achievement from Bassetlaw District Council for her passion and dedication to Worksop Pride.
