Brighton Bear Weekend 2019

We can’t wait to see you in June for four days of fur and fun in the sun!

Easter Quiz: grand total

Our Easter Quiz at the Camelford Arms and the accompanying raffle raised a fantastic £359.70 for the Brighton Rainbow Fund. Thank you to the Camelford Arms for hosting this annual event as always, and to everyone who came and supported us!

The winning quiz team, Hip Hip (aka the Brighton and Hove Sea Serpents rugby lads, pictured below) narrowly missed the £300 star prize, and went home with a box of chocolates instead. Better luck next time, boys!

Get ready for our Easter Quiz!

It’s that time of year again: our eggs-citing Easter Quiz will be at the Camelford Arms tonight (Thursday 18 April) from 7:00 pm. The winning team could win the top cash prize of £300!

The quiz itself will start at 9:00 pm, but it’s always a good idea to arrive early to get a table as the pub fills up fast. (Pro tip: have an early dinner there and stay at your table afterwards!)

Easter Bunny Bear

It costs just £2 per person to enter the quiz, with £1 per entry being donated to the Brighton Rainbow Fund.

If you don’t win the quiz, you can also play our big Easter raffle for a chance to win fabulous prizes including Sunday lunch and wine at the Camelford, a prosecco and chocolate hamper, a floral bouquet, wine and Easter eggs.

If you’re coming, please let us know on the Facebook event page. See you there!

Brighton Bear Weekend on the radio!

We were on The Big Take Over with Kathy Caton on BBC Radio Sussex/Surrey last night, discussing this year’s Brighton Bear Weekend, our new event lineup, the bear community, and much more!

You can listen to it on BBC Sounds (you may need to register), with our bit starting 1 hour 8 minutes in and lasting about ten minutes – we managed to cram quite a lot of information in, though!
