Official launch party for Brighton Bear Weekend 2017

We will be hosting an official launch party for this year’s Brighton Bear Weekend at the Camelford Arms (30-31 Camelford Street, Brighton, BN2 1TQ) on Saturday 25 March.

The party will start at 7:00pm, and the Brighton Bear Weekend team will be there to answer your questions about this year’s events. You will also have a chance to buy our new t-shirts, polo shirts and wristbands for the big weekend (15-19 June).

Programme of events and online shop

The programme of events for this year’s Brighton Bear Weekend is now up on this site! You can click the name of each venue for more information, including its street address and a map. Check it out here!

Our online shop is also up and running, selling this year’s t-shirts, polo shirts and wristbands. The designs have changed – the clothing items feature our brand new logo for 2017 – but our prices haven’t! T-shirts are still £12, polo shirts are £15, and wristbands are a real bargain at £5, bringing you huge discounts on event entry and drinks. (Wristbands will be £6 each after 16 April, so grab yours at the early bird price now!) For more information and to order online for delivery or collection, visit the shop here.
