Hazlitt Pride Cabaret

Hazlitt Pride Cabaret


The Hazlitt Theatre is thrilled to be celebrating Pride month in partnership with Maidstone Pride Community Group this June with the inaugural Hazlitt Pride Cabaret! We are proud to be participating in Maidstone’s first ever Pride event after the success of our Not a Phase audio walking trail in 2022 thanks to donations from Fremlin Walk, Maidstone Borough Council and One Maidstone. 

Join us as we celebrate a range of local LGBTQ+ Youth (and young at heart) talent in our Exchange Studio on 22 June 2024! 




What is Hazlitt Pride Cabaret? 

The Cabaret-style evening will showcase a variety of acts from the LGBTQ+ community performed in our intimate Exchange Studio. This is a seated event, with very limited tickets available on a first come, first serve basis. Our aim is to create a relaxed evening to celebrate Maidstone Pride in a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone.


Can anyone buy tickets for the Hazlitt Pride Cabaret?

Everyone 14+ is welcome to join us to celebrate Pride! However please be mindful that our inaugural Hazlitt Pride Cabaret is taking place in the intimate setting of our Exchange Studio so we have a very limited number of tickets on sale via this webpage and in our Box Office. See 'Details' section of this page for more details about our Pay What You Can scheme. 


This event is in partnership with Maidstone Pride, but managed and ticketed by the Hazlitt Theatre. There will be lots of events happening in the town centre on the day of 22 June - check out Maidstone Pride’s website for more information on daytime events. Any tickets purchased for Maidstone Pride events will not gain entry to our Hazlitt Pride Cabaret, which must be purchased directly from us. The Hazlitt Theatre are the sole sellers of tickets to the Hazlitt Pride Cabaret, so please book via our website or through our Box Office to avoid any disappointment. 


We aim to make this performance as accessible and affordable as possible with tiered ‘Pay What You Can’ ticket prices. The higher priced tickets will act to supplement the lowest price of tickets, so audience members are encouraged to pay what they can to make this event affordable to as many people as possible. Wheelchair spaces can be booked directly with our Box Office only, not bookable online. If you have any additional needs and would like to ask us a question, please email us: hazlitt.boxoffice@parkwoodtheatres.co.uk or visit our Access page.

How will Hazlitt Pride Cabaret be supporting the LGBTQ+ community?

We will be fundraising for a local LGBTQ+ charity, Porchlight to fundraise for their BeYou Project and Adolescent Wellbeing Service (PAWS) on the evening of the Hazlitt Pride Cabaret too, so please bring spare change as we will have bucket collections, raffles and incredible prizes all in support of this incredible charity! If you would like to sponsor one of our VIP Cabaret Tables or donate a raffle prize, please contact hazlitt.marketing@parkwoodtheatres.co.uk.  Alternatively, you can donate NOW digitally through our JustGiving page.


We look forward to welcoming you to our inaugural Hazlitt Pride Cabaret to celebrate our local LGBTQ+ Youth community! Keep an eye out on our socials and website - a limited number of tickets are on sale NOW!
