There will be a Live Stage, Bears and BME Tents, a fun fair, enough bars to keep the thirstiest person happy, trade and food stalls plus of course the exclusive Pride Members Area which not only has its own private bar and toilets will now have its own entrance so Pride Member’s will be fast tracked into the park. To become a member of Pride go to www.brightonpride.orgMembership costs £25 and includes a free ticket to the park as well as lots of offers at local businesses and venues throughout the year.
Last month Pride announced that we had been working hard to ensure a ticket price which is fair and affordable, and we were very pleased to be able to announce that following lengthy discussions with our friends at Ticketline we negotiated that supporters will not have to pay a booking fee when buying their tickets for Pride.
Pride is committed to making the Summer Festival accessible to all those that wish to support the charity’s objectives and raise funds for the local community. In support of this goal an allocation of free community tickets for the main park event has been reserved for local groups to distribute to individuals who may be at risk of exclusion, or who would find purchasing a ticket difficult. Groups can apply for these tickets via the Pride website www.brightonpride.org
