Welcome to...


Support from these wonderful businesses & organisations means the 2021 BWLP project & parade can happen. Please support them in any way you can.

Our Parade Partner is...Tobacco Factory Enterprises!

Sending huge thanks to Tobacco Factory Enterprises for their continued support of BWLP – committing to support us now, and into the future.  We’re especially grateful during these times.  

The Tobacco Factory café bar is a hub for great food, drink, music and art.  Sunday markets, street
food stalls, festivals and more – it’s a fantastic visit for anyone in the area.

The independently run Tobacco Factory Theatres provides a welcoming home for creative adventures and human connection, for incredible theatre and opportunities to learn and exchange ideas.
