Easter in Brighton ideas

Coming to Brighton for Easter? Here are our Top 5 (well 6 actually!) ideas for things to do in the city this weekend:

1 - Easter Egg rolling competition
Bring your own hand-decorated hard boiled egg and try your luck at this Easter competition in the stunning countryside at Devil's Dyke - the one that gets the furthest down the valley wins. Judges will also be on hand to judge the best decorated egg.

2 – Things to do come rain or shine
Ok – let’s be realistic – it might rain at some point this weekend! So in case it does, we’ve got things covered.

Check out our Rain or Shine section for some sunshine and rainy day inspiration.

3 – Easter Egg Hunt
Pop along to Devil's Dyke (a short bus or car ride from central Brighton) any time between 11am and 3pm to collect your quiz sheet and map. Find the eggs around the Dyke countryside to solve the clues. Prizes for all!

4 – Kids Events at Jubilee Library

Various events are taking place throughout April and the Easter holidays at Jubilee Children's Library, including Stories and Activities, Baby Boogie, Illustration Workshops, Superhero, Labyrinth, Wallace and Gromit and Muppet Screenings and much more.

From April 6-19th there will also be a local history treasure hunt for, with a prize draw for all completed treasure maps.

5 – Margot’s Parties – Glitter Ball at the Hanbury Club
The kitsch and camp caper falls bang in the middle of the Easter bank holiday weekend and aims to provide some uplifting entertainment amidst the muted mood currently sweeping our credit crunch hit climes.

This month is Margot’s Glitter Ball - a studio 54 style soiree. Expect perfect pop, sexy house & dirty disco, seductive surroundings & a heavenly crowd.

6 - Fiery Food Festival
The Fiery Food Festival takes place on Hove Lawns, by the peace statue, this weekend (Sat 11th, Sun 12th and Mon 13th April). Expect all things hot, including chilli market, live bands, chilli food stage, chilli eating competition and spicy foods from around the world...

Happy Easter from VisitBrighton...
