Disability Pride 2020


COVID19 has had an enormous impact on businesses, community and disabled people.

We made the decision to cancel Disability Pride earlier in the year when there was so much uncertainty surrounding the future. 

Several partners have come together and made it possible to offer Disability Pride Online for 2020! 


Between 7th September and 4th October 2020, there will be a range of online-accessible events including:

  • Sports 

  • Art

  • Musical Performance 

  • Talks 

  • YouTube videos 

  • and much more

We're still really sad that we weren't able to put on a big event this year, but by keeping the spirit for Disability Pride alive we can only hope for a bigger and better event next year!

Partners involved in DP20 Online are:

Equal Lives 

Active Norfolk

Human Library 

Martin Symons (Chair of DP)

UEA and Sports Park
