Delivered by Ocean’s 8 Brighton, sponsored by Brighton Pride, supported by Brighton Watersports and The Bird & Blend Tea Co.
Whist Pride don’t manage or organise events on the beach, we feel we all have a responsibility to keep our city clean, not just on Pride weekend but all year round. Our beaches are our city’s crowning glory and we are proud to have partnered with a number of other local community organisations to support and sponsor the first ever ‘Big Pride Silent Disco Beach Clean’ to be delivered by Ocean’s 8 Brighton, supported by Brighton Watersports and the Bird & Blend Tea Co and more to be announced soon.
Volunteers who complete a full session can get a free ticket to Love BN1Fest as a huge thank you from us!
Planning is still in the early stages, but if you would like more information about volunteering to be part of the Oceans’s 8 Beach Clean crew, please complete this form.

Brighton Watersports prides itself as a beacon of best practice on Brighton Beach. Our philosophy is to “Live Life Beyond the Shoreline” – we are so passionate about the ocean we are in it almost all day every day. Unfortunately when we are out we often come back with bags of litter that has found its way to the ocean after being left on the beach, so we are excited to support beach cleans along Brighton beach and the surrounding area. We are fanatical about keeping our beach and the oceans as clean as possible and deliver safety advice, beach cleans and educational seminars from the store in an attempt to better understanding and safety in the area. We also work closely with local businesses to guide us all towards a more sustainable, healthy eco-system.
