Shropshire LGBT Festival back to running in person events


The organisers of the Shrewsbury LGBT History Festival have announced the events which they’ll be running this year.

The festival is taking place during the weekend of the 1st to the 3rd of April at the Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

Admittedly that’s a little later than most LGBT History events take place – but they have to do it differently in Shrewsbury as the town often floods during February (as it did this year!). Plus, the clocks will have changed, so hopefully it’ll be a little lighter and warmer!

There’s nine events planned for the weekend, and all but one are free to attend – so they’re hoping to draw a real crowd as the festival makes a return to being a face-to-face event.

In 2021, during the pandemic, the festival instead moved online for a month of virtual events.

VideoHQ produced an event video of that festival, which featured video feedback that was creatively gathered – it’s much harder to do this when you can’t just grab someone who is attending an in-person event!

We conducted and recorded feedback over Zoom, including with someone who runs an LGBT organisation in the Kingdom of Eswatini in Southern Africa!

However this year, we’ll be filming every event in person. This means it can be uploaded in full for anyone who missed it, and the highlights will be incorporated into an event montage video of the weekend.

The event video will also feature:

  • Interviews with speakers
  • Audience participation
  • Recordings of music performances
  • Video feedback from attendees
