Missing the thrill of live entertainment? Cinestock is looking to fill that void with their stellar line-up of drive-in film screenings and comedy shows. Located at The South of England Showground, their summer calendar includes the likes of Ed Byrne and Marcus Brigstocke.

After months of endless cooking (and washing up) you deserve a night eating at one of Brighton's swanky restaurants. For the best views in town? Head to the seafront, where you'll be able to munch on fancy fish and chips or gourmet brunch dishes whilst watching the waves lap the shore.

@ Lucky Voice Brighton on Saturday 29th August 2020 and 3 other Saturdays

While you may know about Lucky Voice's epic late-night singalongs, you might not be so familiar with their daytime offering. Head here for socially-distanced bottomless brunch and you can expect hilarious karaoke games, two hours of unlimited cocktails and tasty scran courtesy of Bon Vivant.

Who said you need a dancefloor to get down? This walking tour is accompanied by a soundtrack of the very best pop hits. Everyone who takes part will be given their own headset, meaning they can boogie on down the beach like nobody is watching (spoiler alert - people will definitely be watching).

Sounds Familiar's epic events have gained quite the reputation in Brighton over the years. And while packed-out music halls may still be off the cards, you can get your fix of tabletop dancing and bonkers prizes by taking part in one of their online editions instead.

Social Isolation

Born out of a desire to connect people in their homes, they have created a roster of virtual bingo events, dance parties and singalongs. The best bit? You won't even have to change out of your PJs.

After a long old hiatus beer gardens are finally able to reopen their doors for a summer of socially-distanced pints and alfresco eats. Brighton's collection of outdoor drinking dens includes sky high rooftops, beachfront bars and leafy secret escapes, perfect for cooling off after a day exploring.
