We realise that our estimated budget will seem quite high at first glance to those who may not have been involved in organising big events before.  We also realise that costs are estimated until we can get confirmed quotes.  So how are we going to fund this?

Like any other pride festival, we're reliant on corporate sponsorship, grants, fundraising activity and donations on the day.  There is also income generated by amusement rides, commercial stall holders, as well as food and drinks concessions. 

As we generate funds through sponsorship, grants and donations, we will also share this information here as well.
