Nelson Pride Postpone the Pride Glamboyant Ball

With a lot of sadness the Nelson Pride Inc., have had to postpone the LGBTQ+ Pride Glamboyant Ball which many in the community were looking forward to. This is like a number of events in Nelson that have had to be postponed or canceled due to Covid.

Nelson Pride sent this statement:

"After a lot of conversation and in light of fluctuating Covid Alert Levels, the Nelson Pride committee chose to postpone the Nelson Pride Ball that was due to be held on 25 September 2021. We didn't feel that we would be doing the event justice unless it were to go ahead in Alert Level One, as we'd originally envisioned it, with 150+ guests and the freedom for everyone to move, dance and shimmy freely around the ballroom. 

The new ball date is 19th February 2022, the Saturday after Valentine's Day. Tickets are still available through Eventfinda and guests who already bought a ticket will be able to use them for the new date - or get a refund if desired. 

The added time not only gives us breathing room to make sure the ball is as epic as it can possibly be, it also gives everyone a little extra time to shop for the perfect ball outfit!

The committee would like to thank everyone who has supported us through this tricky time. For more information, please look for Nelson Pride Inc on Facebook or email us" - Aimée Borlase, Chair of Nelson Pride Inc.

Quite a few of the community are disappointed due to the postponement and we hope that the new Ball date on the 19th February 2022 will not be affected.
