Southside Shopping Centre to Host ‘Tree of Pride’ this June


In celebration of Pride Month this June, Southside Shopping Centre is hosting a ‘Tree of Pride’, inviting guests to decorate the tree with their pledges to work toward a more inclusive and caring future.

The community art piece will be touring the country gathering the public’s messages of love, unity, and acceptance on its journey. Guests can commit to one of the suggested pledges if they wish or leave a positive sentiment that feels appropriate to them, such as a dedication to a loved one.

The Tree of Pride will be at Southside Shopping Centre on 29th and 30th June, and the public are invited to participate from 10am-6pm on Saturday and 11am – 5pm on Sunday.

Rebecca Ruddle, Centre Director at Southside Shopping Centre, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the Tree of Pride at the centre over the London Pride weekend!

“We celebrate our wonderfully diverse community all day, every day, and Pride Month is an opportunity to put a spotlight on progress made so far, and the work still to be done. We look forward to reading our guests’ messages celebrating inclusivity.”
