  1. Avoid it like the plague , went last year a complete shambles even though I bought tickets in advance we had to queue for an 1.30 m to collect the tickets then queue again to enter the gates when we finally got in the tents were one out one in and huge queues to get in , also saw two separate fights between lads people off their faces and drunk I mean it was the opposite of friendly and chilled and more like kavos strip

      The very fact that the event was so busy is whiteness to Brighton Prides popularity as one of the largest, most traditional and reputable LGTB events in Europe. Yes there were a few issues as there often is when over 50,000 people gather for a party. However a new management team are in place and are already addressing last years queuing issues by appointing an independent established ticket agent and introducing self-print and smart phone ticketing requiring a simple barcode scan at any of the 7 proposed entry points. Temporary campsite facilities and a shuttle bus service are also being reintroduced and the main entertainment stage will also return.
