Brighton PRIDE

Great Brighton Run Brighton Pride takes place each August and has rightly earned itself the title “the biggest and best pride in the UK”. It is at the very heart of the country’s gay and lesbian scene and has been joined by Winter Pride, which is held in Brighton each February.

More than 100,000 people flock to Brighton each summer to enjoy a week of community events. The week culminates with a carnival parade through the city by the sea and a busy festival in Preston Park [map].
The traditional parade route starts at Madeira Drive, then makes its way past Victoria Gardens, through the Old Steine, along London Road and into Preston Park.

Throughout the afternoon and well into the evening, the carnival parade event offers the best singing divas and drag stars on the main stage, as well as the Wild Fruit Dance Tent for the serious partygoers.

There's also well over 100 stalls in the market sell everything from adult toys and fashion accessories to piercing and original art. There's also food and a whopping six bars, as well as a funfair.

After sweeping through the park, the party spills into Brighton town centre. You can expect the city to be buzzing with a series of themed club nights where you can paint the town red - or pink. The party doesn't end there - the carnage continues well into Sunday, where the funfairs are back in action and you can re-live your fun-packed Saturday afternoon all over again.

Pride celebrations are an integral part of Brighton life, and have been voted the best in Britain by leading lights in the gay press.
