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.
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.
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.
Join Lucky Voice for their bottomless brunch, where you can enjoy an hour of karaoke, two hours of bottomless cocktails, bagels, glitter artists, fun games, and a general ridiculous time.
Whether you're after a fun night out with mates or looking for something a little different, head to Komedia this month where Ultimate Power is back for an epic night filled with big tunes from some of the best artists of all time.
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.
Head to one of Brighton's most unique bars for an evening of heartfelt blues from singer and guitarist Harry Hornsey and multi-instrumentalist Alfie Bernadi. The two will be playing a toe-tapping array of tunes inspired by country blues from the 1920's to the 1950's.
Karaoke gets a serious makeover with this brilliant event at Komedia. Don your choir outfit and prepare to sing your favourite tunes to the backing of a live gospel choir; along with prizes for the best confessional and some very silly entertainment at the hands of Eleanor Conway.
Too Darn Soulful are taking over Funkyfish Club for an epic celebration of Northern Soul this August bank holiday. This all-day party will take you through the extensive history of the genre, creating a palpable atmosphere in a superb venue.
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.
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.
