The Pride Pleasure Gardens will see the Old Steine and Victoria Gardens transformed into a unique Pride experience for three days and nights of fierce fun, saucy wonders, camp pop, stunning cabaret, Brighton bands, sensational live performances, cool DJs and hot clubbing.

Victoria Gardens will be alive with unmissable celebrations as the exquisite sounds of beloved songsmith Lucy Spraggan and her unique perfect mix of acoustic, folk and hip-hop returns to Brighton with support from singer songwriter Amelia Caesar and local heroes Frankie Furlow for Pride Unplugged on Friday night, whilst Saturday will see the brilliance of Brighton’s very own homegrown BIMM Showcase Stage and the funk soul and club classics of DJ Sean Quinn provide the perfect Pride soundtrack.

The Old Steine will be fizzing with fabulousness as Pride Goes Pop – S Club Party opens proceedings with our Official Pride Warm Up Party on Friday. Join the Sultan-Of-Smut and Master-Of-Bates Boogaloo Stu for an evening of festive frivolity and surreal shenanigans plus the  poptastic S Club party.

Saturday will see legendary 80s mega club night It Is Still 1985 and the universally acclaimed self declared chaos of alt.drag superstars Sink The Pink’s Club Tropicana Takeover deliver must-do clubbing and cabaret, whilst Sunday will be sensational with Stetson loving LGBT+ Community Line Dancing, London’s most addictive drag and cabaret night with the bears, blokes, cubs and hunks filled sexy tea dance of London’s infamous Brut Bearsitval.

And with plenty of food stalls to tickle your taste buds and bars to quench your Pride thirst, The Pride Pleasure Gardens will be the perfect addition to your weekend.

Most of the entertainment is free of charge to Pride Festival ticket holders (subject to capacity), but there is a cover charge/ tickets required  for some of the club events.
