Yorkshire Bears @ The Brighton Bear Weekender
June 19, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - June 22, 2015 @ 12:00 pm
The full programme of the events is still to be announced, so keep a close eye on the BBWE website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter – we’re giving you ample notice on this one because Brighton accommodation is snapped up very quickly in the summer, and we wouldn’t want to see anyone sleeping on the beach like a drunken sunburnt day-tripper who’s missed their last train home. You’re better than that.
The Brighton Bear Weekender is a free event, although there’s a small entry fee for some of the venues, and all profits go to local charity the Rainbow Fund. In previous years they’ve operated a wristband scheme which gives discounted entry to venues, and deals on drinks, and you can also support the group by buying a t-shirt or hoodie from their online shop. It’s going to be an amazing weekend, but if feel you need a little more persuasion, then take a look at the guest blog Matt from the BBWE did for the Yorkshire Bears last year to get a flavour of what our hairy southern cousins get up to.
We’re planning to travel down there on the Friday and stay till the Monday, and aside from the brilliant events organised by the BBWE team, there’s nowhere quite like Brighton on a warm summer’s day. Ride down the promenade on a shiny lambretta, join a drumming circle and bongo-in the Solstice with a gaggle of upper middle-class trustafarians, or just sit on a terrace overlooking the glittering sea, while moaning about the slightly more expensive lager.
Other local attractions include:
Having Your Aura Photographed – Crazy Golf – Peter Andre.
