Join us for the traditional colourful start to the Brighton Festival, The Childrens Parade. We'll have lunch nearby afterwards , then navigate our own Artists Open Houses tour.
Start Brighton Festival the way you mean to go on: with an explosion of fun, colour, music and style. The parade – probably the largest of its kind in Europe – always gets things off to an exhilarating start, and this year the arts provide the inspiration for the 83 schools and 5,000 young people involved. Different sections of the spectacle will focus on dance, theatre, film, visual arts and books, and with musician-in-residence James Keane on board for the first time, music will play a major role. Anything that can be played on the move will feature, ensuring that this year’s children’s parade will have to be heard to be believed.
