Press Release from Chester Pride:
Chester Pride presents a unique, not to be missed, fundraiser ‘Tatts and Tassels’ at Minerva Lodge Tattoo Club on 11th July 2015 in association with Spectrum Promotions. Tatts and Tassels will feature superb local talent including live music from Campfire Social, Emmi and Steve (Baby Brave), and Me and Deboe, plus a performance from the captivating belly dancer Serpentina. The evening will be hosted by the colourful Violet Wray. Minerva Lodge Tattoo Club artists will be tattooing a few lucky attendees on the night, with a donation from each tattoo going to Chester Pride. Stalls from local businesses will feature in the gallery space including Chester Food Assembly, a vintage area from Becnicks Wonder Emporium, delicious waffles from Off the Waffle, and a pop up coffee shop from Harvest Moon. Chester Pride Director Helen Pickin-Jones said ‘The organisers of Chester Pride want to ensure that the Chester Pride festival can remain a free event, and fundraisers, like the upcoming ‘Tatts and Tassels’ evening at Minerva Lodge Tattoo Club, are essential in contributing to the cost. It will also be an amazing evening as there is so much talent here in Chester, and it is an intimate and beautiful venue. We really hope people come along to support us and have fun.’ Chester Pride 2015 takes place on Saturday 3rd October in Castle Square, Chester.
