Legends. the iconic venue on Brighton seafront, is the first out of the stalls to announce the result of their Brighton & Hove Pride fundraising for the Brighton Rainbow Fund.

The traditional Pride Sunday Cabaret Marathon Fundraiser raised a massive £3,000 in six hours.

The Brighton Rainbow Fund distributes funds raised by the community as grants to local LGBTQ+ and HIV projects, supporting hundreds of people.

The (usually) annual marathon event is organised by Stephen Richards aka Lola Lasagne, and after a gap of two years due to Covid restrictions, he has returned to work with a new team at Legends comprising new owner Erica Hann and general manager Tyler Bowring, ably supported by the whole Legends team.
