Brighton Bear Halloween party breaks the vault for Rainbow Fund

Besi Besemar November 24, 2017

This year’s annual Brighton Bear Halloween party raised a record breaking £533 for the Rainbow Fund.

The Night of The Living Zomibears held at Subline on October 27 was a huge success with many turning out in costume to enjoy the raucous party atmosphere.

Top prizes donated by Brighton Gin, Clone Zone and The Camelford Arms were given to those in the best outfits.

Graham Munday, Chair of Brighton Bear Weekend, said: “The party went really well especially as we had so much competition was on that night. Peopled turned up early and stayed late. I must say thank you to Subline staff Steven Lee, Polly, DJ Screwpuious and the bar staff Craig Warren and John Tovey. On the door, Sharon bravely kept all the beautiful freaks in the club. Thank you to the companies that donated prizes.”

BBW are now getting ready for their Very Beary Christmas Weekend starting on Saturday, December 9 with Bear-a-oke at Bar Broadway from 7.00 pm to 9.30pm.
