RAW Win LFA Pride Float Competition

RAW are delighted to announce that we have won the competition to design the LFA Architecture LGBT+ float for the 2019 London and Manchester Pride parades, with our entry titled Under One Roof.

Thank you to everyone at Architecture LGBT+, London Festival of Architecture and Sir Robert McAlpine for organising a great competition and a fantastic event.

Work has already begun on getting the float constructed in time for London Pride on July 6th 2019, before it’s all taken apart and shipped north for Manchester Pride on August 24th 2019!

We’re looking forward to seeing as many people as possible out on the streets of London and Manchester, supporting Pride 2019!
