SCOTS comedian Scott Agnew has blasted Pride Glasgow's response to this year's ticket shambles – branding their peace offering as "outrageous".

As reported by the Evening Times previously, organisers were forced to issue an apology following the event this month after hundreds of people who had bought tickets were denied entry and told Kelvingrove Park had reached capacity.

Long queues formed at the venue with tickets seemingly oversold – to which many people took to social media to complain about how they had been waiting for hours with no water in the blistering heat. Some even reported how those waiting passed out in the warm weather.

Organisers have now emailed customers – offering those adversely affected this year with the choice of a refund or VIP weekend tickets to next year's event.

Blasting the move on Facebook, Scott posted: "The Glasgow Pride 2018 shambles rolls on.

"The response people looking for a refund are finally receiving by email includes more wriggling and squirming and shirking of responsibility.

"Offering VIP tickets for next year's event – something which may not even take place – is nothing short of outrageous.

"That they have to answer questions and provide supporting evidence to get a refund is just shocking.

"And all this done via email – no secure forms to protect your bank details.

"From my understanding of current GDPR legislation this falls far short of required standards and anyone sending personal information including bank details should proceed with caution as this information could be at risk."

Scott previously blasted the organisation of the event and stated that he would never host another Pride Glasgow whilst the current management was in place.

He said: "I will now never host another Pride Glasgow whilst this management team is in place – I can only hope for change and that in future a team will be put together that respects its performers, pays them a fair wage for a job done and treats them well.

“But more importantly Glasgow Pride gets a new management team that respects the community it is there to serve, listens to what it has to say and acts appropriately."

To date, more than 1,500 people have signed a petition calling on CEO of the annual event, Alastair Smith, to stand down.

In a statement last Monday, organisers said: “As Pride organisers, we are devastated we have let down so many people within our own community and spoiled their Pride plans.

“We know many thousands attended Pride Glasgow this weekend without incident, enjoying the huge range of entertainment on offer but that won’t be of consolation to those we let down.

“We are currently de-rigging the festival site and we will be responding to all those affected directly and make sure we can try and make it up to them.

"We will work tirelessly to ensure that what happened at the gates this year doesn’t happen again.

“We are working to expand our production team and our board, while improving transparency and communication to ensure the organisation, with only two part-time staff is growing in scale with the festival.”

The Evening Times has contacted Pride Glasgow for further comment in respect to how the team can guarantee those buying VIP tickets this year will gain access next year, and what security measures they have in place to protect the storage of personal information and bank details sent via email to their offices.
