Graham Munday Chair of BBW said: “We’d especially like to thank the guys at The Amsterdam Bar & Kitchen, Bar Broadway, The Camelford and Subline, all of whom have been very supportive and hosted a number of events for us throughout the year.

“Given the economic climate we are in, this is a doubly impressive figure we have raised and we really do owe a huge debt of gratitude to everyone who supported us this year, and in particular, all those who came to our events, braved the rain dug deep and created a weekend in June that everyone enjoyed.

“Next year will be our 10th birthday and we are looking forward to making Brighton Bear Weekend even bigger and better.”

Brighton Bear Weekend in 2019 will be held over the weekend of June 25-28, 2020.
