Brighton & Hove Pride are delighted to announce details for the ‘Pride at the Ironworks’ supported by Tesco opening Gala Launch Night on Saturday 31st July.  Kicking off the sensational season of extensive LGBTQ+ cultural events in celebration of Pride month, the night will be hosted by drag sensation Felix Le Freak and feature a spectacular array of cabaret, drag, live music and spoken word performances from some of Brighton’s best loved entertainers including the prince of UK drag Alfie Ordinary; Lorraine Bowen, Lydia L’Scabies, Sammy Silver and many more!

Supporting LGBTQ+ artists and the wider community, ‘Pride at the Ironworks’ takes place this August and September at Ironworks Studios in central Brighton and features a glittering programme of showstopping cabaret, comedy, theatre, dance, film, activism and politics.  Featuring an array of artists and performers including the likes of Duncan James, Polari, Heather Peace, Girli, The Glory, Hannah Brackenbury and more; the two-month fiesta promises to be a fantastical, fun and cultural extravaganza with an event for everyone.

Paul Diello, queer artist and curator of the Gala Launch, said “There’s such a huge amount of talent within the LGBTQ+ community here in Brighton and Hove and it’s been such a joy putting together this amazing selection of performers for our opening night. I can’t wait for everyone to see this fantastic new performance space for the first time and what better way to introduce Ironworks Studios than with the crème de la crème of Brighton’s queer talent.”

Whilst unable to run our usual larger scale events, ‘Pride at the Ironworks’ enables us to continue our campaigning, celebration and support for the local LGBTQ+ and wider community while fundraising for our essential local charities and community groups that do such essential work all year round.  Every ticket sold for ‘Pride at the Ironworks’ will include a charity donation to The Brighton Rainbow Fund.

To make the cultural programme accessible to all members of the community, we will be offering a number of discounted tickets for every performance.
