The BBW team exists to bring bears and their friends together at various points throughout the year via a series of volunteer-run events that are warm, welcoming, fun and affordable. Our flagship event is the Brighton Bear Weekend.
Our success enables us to achieve our secondary objective of being a significant supporter of the Brighton Rainbow Fund and the Sussex Beacon.


We aspire to run the friendliest series of bear events that attract an ever-growing crowd who enjoy the excitement of having furry fun by the seaside.

We will provide a range of events that has something for everyone in the wider bear community, recognising that bears come in all shapes, sizes, and flavours!
