Brighton Bear Weekend's Garden Party, Saturday 15 June, 12:00 to 6:00 pm

Date: Saturday 15 June 2019
Time: 12:00 to 6:00 pm
Where: Dorset Gardens, Brighton, BN2 1RL [map]

The biggest event of the weekend, and undoubtedly the most popular! We’re back in Dorset Gardens for an afternoon of food, drink, entertainment, and (hopefully) sunshine!

There will be a full afternoon of music and entertainment on our stage, including your host Jon Borthwick, Sally Vate, Dave Lynn, Lola Lasagne, Dave the Bear, Kara Van-Park, Pat Clutcher, Chris Hide, Krissie D & Col B, Zoë and Mr Keys, Jason Thorpe, the Rainbow Chorus and the Actually Gay Men’s Chorus.

As always, there will be fabulous food from Lunch Positive and a bar selling alcohol and soft drinks. You can also bring your own picnic if you prefer; however, be aware that council regulations mean that you are not permitted to bring your own alcohol.

There will also be stalls including a Bizarre Bazaar jumble sale from the Sussex Beacon, a tombola, and much more!

Free entry. Toilets (including disabled toilet) available on site. Wheelchair accessible.
