Awaiting Dates for 2020
Brighton Bear Weekender.
Brighton Bear Weekend is an annual event for bears, cubs and friends in Brighton on the south coast of England. The Weekend is the UK south coast’s legendary bear event, with four days of fur and fun in the sun!
The event is Free and you can just show up and enjoy the weekend! Some of the venues will charge a modest entry fee for the bigger events, but many are free to enter (although you will of course need money for drinks and so on).
However, you can also buy a wristband to take advantage of great discounts on drinks, entry fees, and many other items over the entire weekend.
BBW organisers are strive hard to deliver a weekend of socialising, partying, fundraising and of course loads of men. They are putting together an exciting program of events, some new, and some old with a twist to make them more current.
Brighton Bear Weekend is packed to the rafters with talented DJs and cabaret artistes to entertain you over the whole weekend. They will be joined by the Sea Serpents, Brighton and Hove’s own gay-friendly rugby team. One of the highlights will be when we auction off some of their players on Sunday afternoon at Legends.
The first BBW was in 2009 and since then has raised more than £15,000 for the Rainbow Fund, who make grants to LGBT and HIV organisations who deliver effective front line services to LGBT people in Brighton and Hove.
Do not miss the Rugby Matches!! Woof and of course the welcome breakfasts, a great way to get to know other attendees!
As you can see from the map the gay area is quite compact and on the sea front of Brighton, we have found hotels and guest houses close to the gay bar and clubs that have good revues, to help you make the most from you Brighton experience,
