Best Events in August
August is a busy month for Brightonians with Brighton Pride coming in hot at the beginning of the month, a long weekend of revelry to bring it to a close, and plenty in between to keep the beach bums entertained once the sun goes in. We're fully aware that many of you will just want to lie inside with easy access to cold showers and hand fans, but that would be a huge waste of the rare British Summertime, so we've rounded up some of the best events and night outs in town to help you navigate this month for your party pleasure - you can thank us later.
Escape from the summer heat with the UK's only in-pub VR experience. Make for the World's End where you'll find The VR Concept have set up shop to bring you some of the most cutting-edge gameplay in the country.
Head down to this gorgeous restaurant and house of entertainment this month for some of the best burlesque in Brighton. Offering dinner shows every Friday and Saturday, you'll find feats of daring and debauchery, alongside some tasty dishes and deluxe interiors.
Did someone say 'flashmob'? Head to the Theatre Royal where Guru Dudu is waiting to get you dancing through the streets of Brighton to the best and biggest tunes of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s. And, yes, there will absolutely be singing.
Crashing down at Boutique the first Thursday of every month, Brighton's most turnt night out brings you an all night party of Hip-Hop, R&B, Grime, Afrobeats, Trap, Indie and Old School alongside some great drinks deals and a buzzing atmosphere.
The Great Eastern venue in Brighton rolls back the clock every third Friday of the month, hosting a huge club night revolving around the best 60s soul, funk and ska tunes. With free entry throughout the night and a bar stocked full of all your favourite beers, wines and fiery spirits, there are few better ways to start a weekend in Brighton than by dancing long into the early hours to retro tunes.
