Where does the money raised go?
All the money raised from the Rainbow Gala will be split equally, after costs are paid, with Pink Saltire SCIO and the new Fife Pride organisation. Working with other partners in Fife, the Kingdom will have its first Pride event in 2017.
I heard you received a Lottery grant, why do I still have to pay?
That's correct, we were successful in attracting a grant from the 'Celebrate' program at Big Lottery Fund Scotland in August 2016. Others, including the Fife Charities Trust, have also supported the event with cash and in-kind donations, which we are very grateful for. This allows us to pay for the decoration of the hall, the Awards, discounting the meal to ensure the event is accessible for all and ofcourse publicity and hire costs. We appreciate the support of Carnegie Conference Centre who have offered the venue free of charge and to the acts who have all waived their fee. This generosity ensures every penny raised on the night goes to the charities.
Are there any ID requirements on the night?
Yes - this event is for adults aged 18 and over. Please bring photographic ID which proves your identity and age as security guards and organisers will challenge those under 25.
Will there be a vegetarian meal option?
