Cool and Quirky Events in Brighton

From burlesque bashes and meaty endeavours to freaky fandangoes under the stars, Brighton boasts so many cool and quirky events that we hardly know what to do with them all. Check out our recommendations for some of Brighton's cool and quirky events, discovering why they call our fair seaside city 'The Pearly Gates of Awesome' (okay, sorry, it's only us that call it that).

They may be one of Brighton's most glitzy vintage retreats, but that doesn't mean that Proud Brighton team don't want to get a little freaky on a Friday night in the city. Showcasing some of the finest burlesque and cabaret dancers in town, you'll be able to dabble and dance in one of the rowdiest parties in the city. Even partake in Proud Brighton's very own 'Wheel of Fortune' if the night so takes you.
