Brighton & Hove Pride is the UK’s premier festival to celebrate equality and diversity, in particular for the LGBTQ+ community. It attracts an estimated 500,000 people from around the world to the city for a weekend in August, raising money for local charities.
The Pride weekend features a city centre parade, music festivals, street parties and an arts and film festival, among other bright and colourful activities.
Its music festivals star some of the biggest names in pop, with Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Dua Lipa, Fatboy Slim, Years and Years, the Pet Shop Boys and Sister Sledge just a few of the acts to have performed in recent years.
