March of the Mermaids returns on July 15

Besi Besemar March 15, 2017

The fifth annual March of the Mermaids takes place on Saturday, July 15, 2017.

March of the Mermaids is not just for mermaids! Mermen, sea mammals, crustaceans, pirates, sailors and all forms of sea life are invited to take part – It’s a day out for all the family.

Meet on Hove Lawns (closest to the Peace Statue) from 2.30pm then at 3pm parade along Brighton seafront to celebrate our seas, sea life and raise awareness of marine conservation.

The parade will end at 4pm at the joint after-party venues, the Fortune of War and The Tempest Inn on Brighton Beach for music and entertainment until the wee hours!

This year there are no charges to take part in the parade or entry to the after-parties but a donation of £3 would be appreciated by the organisers.

All profit raised will be donated to Surfers Against Sewage.
