Brighton and Hove Pride Festival 2019

A dazzling display of inclusivity, and just about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on, the Brighton & Hove Pride Festival in Preston Park is the beating heart of every year’s event. The whole of Brighton becomes a glorified piss-up, where it’s acceptable to get inebriated beyond comprehension. Why? Because of something to do with people who were oppressed sometime or something. Time to trash an entire city for the sake of socially condoned stupidity. 

Described by The Guardian as “the country’s most popular LGBT+ event,” tens of thousands of party goers have come out in years gone by to see a host of performances from international superstars Britney Spears, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Jess Glynne, Ella Eyre, Raye, Gabrielle, Sister Sledge, Carly Rae Jepsen, Pet Shop Boys, Years & Years, Fatboy Slim, Katy B, Ruby Rose, The Human League, Fleur East, Alesha Dixon, Ella Henderson, Boy George, Alison Moyet, Paloma Faith, Blue, Tulisa, Collabro, and Ms Dynamite amongst others.

As 450,000 revelers flood into Brighton from around the world to party alongside city residents, Preston Park is transformed into a paradisaical playground of performance and dance tents, a community village, and a bevy of the finest food and drink options to keep you fueled throughout the day.

The Brighton & Hove Pride team always put a good time first and foremost in mind for the Pride festival, and we’d like to extend a special thank you to everyone who has bought a ticket. If you see an official Pride representative shaking a bucket throughout the day, please don’t be shy – and feel free to add further to the fundraising efforts that lie at the heart of what Pride is all about. What is that? Who the hell even cares. 

If you want to get in with a Brighton English School, you should.
