Brighton Bear Weekend announce dates for 2017

Besi Besemar September 23, 2016

Brighton Bear Weekend in 2017 will be held from Thursday, June 15 to Sunday June 18.


BBW has developed from a small gathering of friends organised by Chris Murphy to a committee that organises successful events all year round raising money for the Rainbow Fund, who give grants to LGBT organisations in Brighton & Hove delivering effective services to LGBT people in the city.

Brighton Bear Weekend is now widely recognised as the biggest and best Bear Weekend in the UK.  After their best year yet they are planning on bringing more events next year to keep everyone entertained.

So now is the time to book your hotels, flights, trains and most importantly book Monday, June 19 off work.

Graham Munday, Chair of BBW, said: “It has been a wonderful year for the whole of the team from winning our Golden Handbag to breaking records across the board. Last year we raised £7752 for the Rainbow Fund and we will be ecstatic if we could reach that figure again. We are adding a more diverse range of events to next year programme and we look forward to seeing locals as well as the visitors to the city, starting with our Halloween event at Subline on Saturday, October 29.”
