Reclaim The Night Brighton

Brighton Station

Come walk, roll, skate, dance and chant down the streets of Brighton to remind the city (and ourselves) that we have every right to walk safely at night.

We aren't just here to reclaim one night. We're here to fight for our safety every night of every week of every month of every year. We won't go away until we win. Are you with us?

Let's reclaim the night in Brighton and show those who would deny us the right to walk the streets without fear, that they are not welcome in our city.

The march will end with a rally, so if you are unable to join us on the street, please do come along later in the evening.

A buddy system will be in place for those who don't want to walk alone - further details will be posted closer to the time.

Please note that this march is open to all genders and sexualities!

Route

  1. Start at the station
  2. Down Queen's Road and West Street to the seafront
  3. Across and up to the Old Steine
  4. Up St. James's Street
  5. Arrive at St. Mary's Church

After the march

When we arrive at St. Mary's church we will be hosting a collection of fantastic speakers and poets.

No alcohol is allowed inside the church.

The church is a fully accessible venue.

Note: Due to getting far more interest than we initially expected (yay!) and budget constraints, we could only book a venue with space for around 200 people tops (standing), so unfortunately there may not be room for all who march (if we raise enough money we can have a much bigger venue next year). However, we'll be filming the talks and poetry and putting them on the website so if you don't have the chance, you can catch them later.

Later

After the main event, at St. Mary's Church, the plan is to go for drinks somewhere. Our friends at In The Face have kindly offered to discount tickets for people who have participated in the march. Tickets are £5 (instead of the usual £8). Please note that this event goes on until 6AM and is at the Volks nightclub. This event is adults only, and whilst the main venue is wheelchair accessible, there are no disabled toilets.
