Hebden Bridge is sometimes dubbed the ‘gay capital of the north’, and is well known for its tolerant and gay-friendly atmosphere. Conveniently situated on good rail links between Manchester and Leeds, it is increasingly popular with all kinds of alternative people and has a growing LGBT+ population.
ECC members and other men living in Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley meet monthly, and we welcome men from across the North of England. It's an activity-based group, alternating with occasional heart circles. Activities can be anything the members wish to offer, as on a traditional gay men's week. Examples might include games, meditations, dancing, art and creativity, sharing of favourite readings on a theme, or discussion topics. In the summer, we occasionally meet outdoors for a walk or a picnic.
We normally meet on the third Sunday of each month at Salem Community Centre, but
following the latest developments in the coronavirus pandemic, we have suspended future meetings until further notice.
