RPS London and SE Regions are joining together for a morning in Brighton to celebrate and photograph the 2017 Brighton Pride Community Parade.  

The Brighton website describes the Parade as "a Carnival Of Diversity, an opportunity to reflect the fabulously diverse and unique communities whom we are lucky enough to share our city with. Forever surprising, always engaging and constantly educating, 2017’s Carnival Of Diversity will fill Brighton & Hove’s streets with love, light and laughter as the colour and cohesion of our communities combine to create a explosion of life-affirming brilliance throughout the Brighton Pride Community Parade"

Some of us were at the Parade last year and certainly found it to be fun, friendly and very lively, so based on last  year's experiences, we can highly recommend it. 

The plan is to arrive early and enjoy the participants preparing their floats for the Parade and watch them head off into town.  Then the choice is yours - to follow further, perhaps even buying tickets for the festival/park - or to call it a day and have lunch in a local café or pub before disbanding.

We will have two meet-up points: 

  • for those coming by train, we will meet at Brighton Station at 9.00am and proceed down to Hove Gardens, where the Parade will be preparing. 
  • for local photographers I suggest we meet at the café in the middle of Hove Gardens/in the middle of the space where the floats are preparing at 9.30.

The advertising literature says that the Parade will leave at 11.00am but last year it was certainly later than this, in addition to which it is a long parade and it is a while before the last floats pass the starting point!
