RPS London and SE Regions are once again joining together for a morning in Brighton to celebrate and photograph the 2018 Brighton Pride Community Parade.  

The annual Pride Community Parade is the biggest and most exciting visual event in Brighton & Hove’s calendar bringing the whole community out on to the city’s streets as over 300,000 people participate and watch the spellbinding spectacular of our hugely successful “Carnival Of Diversity”.

Free for spectators, forever surprising, always engaging and constantly educating, the 2018 Brighton Pride Carnival Of Diversity Community Parade will fill Brighton & Hove’s streets with love, light and laughter as the colour and cohesion of our communities combine to create a explosion of life-affirming brilliance"

Some of us were at the Parade last year and certainly found it to be very lively, with photo opportunities welcomed by the participants: based on previous experiences, we can highly recommend it. 

The plan is to arrive early and enjoy the participants preparing their floats for the Parade and watch them head off into town.  Then the choice is yours - to follow further, perhaps even buying tickets for the festival/park - or to call it a day and have lunch in a local café or pub before disbanding.

We will have two meet-up points: 

  • for those coming by train, we will meet at Brighton Station at 9.00am and proceed down to Hove Gardens, where the Parade will be preparing. 
  • for local photographers I suggest we meet at the café in the middle of Hove Gardens/in the middle of the space where the floats are preparing at 9.30.

The Parade will leave at 11.00am but it will take several hours to wind through the streets of Brighton onto it's final destination in Preston Park.
