Four weeks to go!

4 weeks until BBW 2017

Brighton Bear Weekend 2017 will kick off on Thursday 15 June (see the programme of events) – it’s fast approaching! We hope you can come and join us for a fantastic weekend with the bears by the beach.

Wristbands are optional for the weekend, but at only £6 they will quickly save you loads with amazing drinks deals, discounts on club entry, and other great offers. They are currently on sale at the Camelford Arms, Subline and Prowler (112-113 St. James’s Street) in Brighton, and also in our online shop.

To help plan your trip, check out our pages of travel and accommodation information. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates in real time!

Showtunes Bear-a-oke tomorrow

Want to round the weekend off with a bang? Tomorrow (Sunday 2 April) from 5:00pm, we’ll be hosting Showtunes Bear-a-oke at Bar Broadway (10 Steine Street, Brighton, BN2 1TE).

Admission is free, so drop by and enjoy the show – and if you’re brave (or tipsy) enough, get up on the stage and belt one out! Hosts Chris and John Bee will be overseeing the proceedings. See you there! (Check out this event’s Facebook page.)

Easter quiz raises £416 for the Rainbow Fund

There was a full house for our big Easter Quiz at the Camelford Arms last Thursday. Between the quiz and the big raffle, a tremendous £416 was raised for the Rainbow Fund.

Huge thanks to everyone who came and supported us, and to the Camelford for hosting this fun event and providing sandwiches. Thanks also to those who donated two fabulous raffle prizes: Choccywoccydoodah for a huge Easter chocolate cake, and Co-Op Funeral Care for a gigantic hamper of goodies!
