The annual Brighton Pride community parade is one of the biggest and most colourful and exciting visual events in the city’s calendar bringing the whole community out to Brighton & Hove’s streets with over 200,000 people participating and watching the spectacle in all its outrageous colour. The theme of the 2016 parade, which takes place on 6th August, will be Uniting Nations, reflecting the UK’s favourite Pride festival’s on-going commitment to campaigning for global LGBT+ rights.
The main event after the parade is again ticketed (tickets available from the website) and is always one of the biggest parties in the UK. 2015 was one of the best events ever attracting internationally renowned DJs and acts such as The Human League and The Freemasons. And don’t forget there is also the Girl’s Dance tens, the Cabaret Big Top and the Carnival Collective to enjoy as well.
The Pride Village Party (PVP) 2016 is once again being run and managed by Brighton Pride Community Interest Company (CIC) with the full support of Brighton & Hove City Council. Anyone wanting to attend the PVP will require a wristband.
There are also of course a whole host of official after parties as well all across the city. And if you can make it that far, there are even things happening on the Sunday night too!
