HIGHLIGHTS this year includes the first ever visit to Brighton of London’s BeefMince! Expect a welcoming crowd full of hotties, beards, cubs, bears and lovers of a good raunchy party on Saturday evening (June 15) at the Rialto Theatre by the Clock Tower.

Another highlight is the upgraded Saturday afternoon party in Dorset Gardens on June 15 – drink, eat, watch and laugh at this fast-growing mainstay of the bear’s weekend.

Miss Jason and Lola Lasagne as J-Lo will greet friends old and new at the Welcome Party (The Amsterdam Bar and Kitchen on Friday June 14), and the all new Mr Brighton Bear competition taking place at Subline (129 St James Street) later the same evening.

Start thinking about your outfits and look out for details about the competition, the prizes and how to register next month!

BBW Chair Graham Munday says; “We have another full programme of events this year with something for everyone. We’re pleased to add two walking tours to our 2019 programme to show off the hidden delights of Brighton that even some locals don’t know about! One is a guided tour of the fabulous Royal Pavilion, and the second an LGBT+ tour of this gayest of cities! Do come and join us for a fun filled weekend by the sea.”
