Welcome to Pride Saltire

About Us

We’re a vibrant new pride for East Lothian’s LGBTI community and our straight allies. If you haven’t heard of us before, we launched in February 2018 and are based at the beautiful Cockenzie House and Gardens – a venue where most of our events take place.

Our mission is simple. As there hasn’t been any LGBTI events in our area for a few years, we decided it was time to do something about that. We believe there is real value in creating community events. We want to bring a wider outreach and engagement to the people of East Lothian in a warm, friendly environment. 

Our name and our branding both reflect the fact that East Lothian is the home of Scotland’s Saltire flag.


Our next Pride Saltire Festival will take place on Saturday 11 May 2019. The theme for our free event will be “Grass Root Talent” and the identity was created for us by students from Ross High School in Tranent.

So don’t forget to add the date to your calendar now, as we’d love you to come and join us!  

In addition, and working with The Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh, we will also be celebrating LGBT History Month in February 2019 with a series of events. Click the More Info button below to see more details about these:
