Easter Bonnet Parade & Charity Drag Races

The Bedford Tavern & Grosvenor Bar once again bring you Brighton's annual Easter Bonnet Parade & Drag Races.

A fun packed day kicking off at noon when Western Street is closed to traffic and the street party begins.

The traditional Easter Bonnet Parade commences at 2pm where everyone, young and old

is encouraged to create a fabulous Easter hat to parade down Western Street before being judged and prizes awarded.

Following on from the parade we have the spectacle of the now infamous Drag Races. A gaggle of Drag Queens and Drag Kings will compete against one another in a series of races throughout the afternoon before the final races will see the overall winners being crowned. To keep things interesting ‘bets’ can be placed throughout the day and should your runner win the final race you could win one of the amazing prizes on offer.

JB's piano sing-a-long at 5pm leads on to the carnage of The Bedford's weekly dose of Piano Bingo followed by a fun filled evening of cabaret.

This fantastic (rather bonkers) community event brings people together and raises much needed funds for local charity via The Rainbow Fund.

Registration is now open for Drag Race runners. Anyone over the age of 18 can apply to take part. Please contact Adam Brooks or The Bedford Tavern for details.
