Eastbourne Pride, unlike many other Pride days is a free community event and is entirely self funded, replying on fund-raising, donations and corporate sponsorship. To host the day, Bourne Out faces an annual cost of circa £25000. We are proud to have kept the first 2 years free, unlike many other Prides, but this year, we are at risk of having to charge due to a shortfall in funding. If we are forced to charge, the local Council will seek an additional fee of £1.50 per ticket sold on top of our regular hire costs therefore potentially making the event potentially financially untenable.
Your valuable donation can help keep this event free, allowing the Bourne Out group to continue hosting what they are proud to present as a fantastic day of entertainment, inclusion, fun and awareness.
