Brighton Pride secured until 2020

The organizers of Brighton Pride have been given official permission to run the park festival, parade and party in the gay village all the way up to 2020.

The new license from Brighton and Hove City Council means the future home and organizing group of LGBTI Britain’s favorite day by the seaside is secure.

The event, early each August, will see a parade through the city’s streets, a festival in Preston Park and a street party over two days in the gay village.

It’s become a mainstay of the UK gay calendar and attracts headliners like Fatboy Slim, Katy B, Blue, Boy George, Sam Bailey, Alison Moyet and Paloma Faith.

It has also raised over £110,000 ($172,500 €138,500) for the Rainbow Fund, benefitting local charities and organizations, in the last two years.

Director Paul Kemp said: ‘The agreement allows us to continue to develop partnerships that help us build on the success and sustainability of Pride.

‘2015 see Brighton Pride celebrate 25th anniversary of pride in the city and will be the biggest celebration to date.’

The new license has been granted by Brighton and Hove City Council.

Pride takes place over the weekend of 1 to 2 August 2015. Gay Star News is global digital media partner of the event.
