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.

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.

@ The Walrus on Saturday 14th September 2019 and 2 other Saturdays

Things are certainly hotting up in Brighton this August as The Walrus plays host to a glamorous nigh of burlesque and circus in the style of The Great Gatsby and The Roaring 20s. Experience a brilliant night of cabaret with tantalising talent from across the country and beyond. 

@ Brighthelm Gardens on Every Friday

Every Friday at lunchtime in Brighton promises the very best street food that money can buy at Street Diner. Join them in the Brighthelm gardens as they gather some of the finest stalls and traders for the ultimate, independent lunch in town.

@ The Great Eastern on Every 3rd Friday of the month

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.
