The UK’s biggest pride festival is set to get even bigger with the creation of new Festival zones and a community cultural hub in the centre of the City.
The Pride Pleasure Gardens will run over three days across Old Steine and Victoria Gardens.
Victoria Gardens will feature the Pride Community Stage with special performances over the weekend. Entry is free all weekend apart from a special ticketed benefit concert for The Rainbow Fund, featuring Heather Peace and Lucy Spraggan on Friday 5th from 6pm.
Pride will be working alongside Street Diner, Brighton’s hottest street food market who always ensure you arrive hungry and leave happy, to create the Pride Food Village. Street Diner at Victoria Gardens will deliver the best in locally sourced food allowing you to relax and recharge in the centre of the city. Add entertainment courtesy of a Pride Community Stage and bar and Victoria Gardens will sparkle throughout the Pride celebrations.
The Old Steine will be transformed into an exotic Pride experience with a Pleasure Gardens & Pride Pavilion featuring entertainers, street performers and a kitchen area destined to dazzle your taste buds with food stalls and seating. They’ll also be a VIP area hosted by Absolute magazine and plenty of bars especially designed to enhance your Pride experience throughout the festivities.
The Pride Pavilion venue inside the gardens will feature off the wall cabaret and disco madness with among others Dynamite Boogaloo, Sink The Pink and English Disco Lovers. Tickets may be purchased in advance.
Entry to the Old Steine Pleasure Gardens will be free (apart from during Pride Village Party times when wristbands will be required or for Pride Pavilion ticketed events).
