Brighton & Hove Pride has raised almost one million pounds for local LGBTQ+ and HIV charities, community groups, social impact organisations and cultural activities in Brighton & Hove, helping to make a difference to the lives of hundreds of people in our communities.
Pride at the Ironworks allows us to continue our community fundraising by ensuring that every ticket sold will include a charitable donation to The Brighton Rainbow Fund supporting local LGBTQ+ organisations and community groups who do such essential work all year round.
To make the cultural programme accessible to all members of the community, we will be offering a number of discounted tickets for every performance.
