Yep - the Pride season is upon us again. Hurrah we scream!
It all started for me when a colleague started prancing around the office yesterday in a state of excitement at his immenent flight to Madrid for the Pride Weekend. Jealous much?
Show your Pride in Brighton & Hove...
No need really cause Brighton has the biggest and best FREE Pride event in Europe every August - so there's enough to keep me happy right here I reckon. And I won't have to keep saying 'Una cerveza mas por favor'...
The ever so clever people at Pride have conjured up a Pride & (No) Prejudice theme this year (geddit?) and i just can't decide whether to go as the rogueish Mr Darcy or ahem Fanny Price. Fanny might just swing it.
There's a plethora of marvellous events as usual too, from the Pride Dog Show to fabulous club nights. Oh and I think there's a parade or something from 11.00am from Madeira Drive :)
Receive exclusive offers...
And cause we love Pride here at VisitBrighton we've teamed up with the Brighton Pride peeps to offer Pride Members a range of exclusive Pride ‘sneak-previews’ and offers, both over the summer Pride Weekend and throughout the rest of the year.
To take advantage of these offers simply sign up as a member on the Brighton Pride website. You get access to their special members area on the day, so you get to feel all special too. Especially if it rains, which it won't of course.
