The annual Brighton Pride festival (a.k.a. Brighton & Hove Pride) takes place in Brighton every year at the beginning of August, and features parades, a concert in Preston Park, and a range of events and fairground-style attractions.
The festival celebrates LGBT diversity (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender), symbolised by rainbow colours. The 2018 event, the largest yet, brought an estimated 450,000 visitors into the city from the rest of the UK and from around the world, and the concert in Preston Park was headlined by Britney Spears.
The Toy Museum
Brighton Toy and Model Museum usually closes on Brighton Pride day, as the chaotic festival "carnival" street atmosphere and stretched transport system makes it difficult to do anything else on the day!
