Pride Saltire Festival

Cockenzie House & Gardens 
11 May 2019

Our main event, the Pride Saltire Festival, takes place in the gorgeous East Lothian venue of Cockenzie House and Gardens. The Pride Saltire Grand Launch in February 2018 attracted over 400 visitors, who enjoyed a mixture of live music, arts and crafts, debate and dancing, plus a community fair.

Keen to build on this success, our ideas for the 2019 Pride Saltire Festival are even more ambitious. As the theme for this year is “Grass Root Talent”, we want to encourage as many people as possible from the East Lothian LGBTI and our Ally Communities to join us, participate, and to showcase their skills.

Our plans are still very much in development, but here are some of the things that will be happening on the day:

  • Live Music

  • Community Fair

  • LGBT Youth Area

  • Live Broadcast by Scene Radio

  • Pride Saltire Dog Show

The Pride Saltire Festival will remain a FREE event. Anyone can attend, and we are super dog-friendly!

Sponsorship

Pride Saltire is actively looking for local businesses and individuals from East Lothian, or further afield, who are willing to invest in us by becoming our 2019 Headline Sponsors.

Although Cockenzie House & Gardens generously donate the use of their facilities to us for our Pride Saltire Festival, we need to hire things like a marquee, a stage, and sound equipment, in order for us to host and run a successful event.

Money raised via sponsorship, and through exhibitors booking stalls at our Community, Charities & Business Fair, will enable us to pay for these items. Any remaining funds will be used for other Pride Saltire community events throughout the year. It will also assist some of our brilliant team of Pride Saltire volunteers with travel to the annual UK Pride Organisers Network conference, which this year is going to be held in Doncaster.

In return for becoming a Headline Sponsor, Pride Saltire will guarantee you a lot of love – both online through our website and social media feeds, and also in any printed materials or media broadcasts that we may produce or be part of.
