Brighton Pride are excited to announce we have teamed up with Brighton Carriers to facilitate flat bed lorries in various sizes to make it easier for groups to enter the Parade and design an eye-popping float.
To make things as simple and straight forward for groups with limited carnival experience, we have put together some basic packages that can take the stress out of organising your float.
For a basic fee you will get the lorry, driver (and insurance), scaffolding, banners along the two sides, full height across the back and on the front beneath the windscreen. Banners can be co-branded with your groups’s identity alongside Pride’s or can carry a supporting message and branding and colouring of your choice, and these are yours to keep and re-use.
For an additional fee we will decorate your float with 12 large flags, a fringed pelmet, central screen and fabric covered scaffold poles, you just need to then arrange your team in matching tshirts or costumes to give it that final popping splash of colour.
If you are feeling more adventurous but are not sure how to go about it, we can team you up with a designer/artist who will help you turn your vision in to sparkling 3D.
Any organisations, companies or groups wishing to apply for these lorries please email the Parade manager to express your interest, discuss your requirements and any support you need to produce your entry.
