When will Brighton Bear Weekend 2017 take place?

  • Thursday 15 to Sunday 18 June 2017.
  • The programme of events will be announced very soon!

How do I get to Brighton, and where can I stay?

  • You can get to Brighton easily by car or via public transport. See our page of travel information.
  • We have three great hotel deals – see our accommodation page for details.
  • Try Brighton’s official tourism site VisitBrighton for more accommodation ideas.

Do I have to buy a ticket or wristband?

  • No, you can just show up and enjoy the weekend! Some of the venues will charge a modest entry fee for the bigger events, but many are free to enter (although you will of course need money for drinks and so on).
  • However, we strongly recommend that you buy a wristband to take advantage of great discounts on drinks, entry fees, and many other items over the entire weekend. You can still attend all of the events without one, but if you buy one for only £5, it will pay for itself in no time!
  • Wristbands are now on sale in our online shop. They will also be on sale at bars and shops around Brighton soon.

If there are no tickets, how can I be sure to get into a venue?

  • The capacity of most of the official venues is limited. To avoid queues, get there early!
