What is happening at the Newhaven Gala?

On Saturday, May 27th, everyone is welcome to join us on this fun family day.

Two of our P7 students, Gala Queen Rosie Cruikshank, and Fisher King Tom Pryde, with their entourage, will arrive by boat in Newhaven Harbour around 11:00 am and make their way up to The Heart of Newhaven where they will be crowned by Newhaven Heritage’s Dougie Ratcliffe.

Victoria Primary P1 and P7 children will be at the harbour to meet our Gala Queen and Fisher King wearing traditional costumes. Our theme for the Gala this year will be pirates and everyone is welcome to dress up and join the procession from Newhaven Harbour to The Heart of Newhaven (dressing up is optional for everyone).

After the coronation, there will be games and stalls, hot food and ice cream, as well as tea and coffee. Please note that this will be a cash-only event so remember to bring change.
