As most people know Tranent Gala was formed in 1934 by the miners of Tranent who had the vision of bring the community together for a special family day. The Gala has been held at various venues in Tranent including Polson Park, the Juniors football field and Ross High Playing Field where we still have it today. In the last 80 years the Gala has continued to be held annually with the exception of the 5 years during the second World War.
The Gala is run by a Gala Committee who organise not only the Gala Day but also a Winter Wonderland, the Grand Parade and all the fundraising activities throughout the year. The Gala Committee are all volunteers who give up their time to keep this traditional event ongoing. It's not possible to run the Gala without the help and support of local businesses, community groups and schools, most of these will be named in another section of this website. Enjoy browsing this website and if you need to get in touch or want something added to the website you can contact us at [email protected] Your input is very important to us as this is a community website and everyone's opinion matters.
Proud To Be A Belter and want to help out??? We welcome everyone who wants to lend a hand whether it's by joining the committee or coming along to help at the fundraisers. We appreciate all the help we can get so please get in touch.
