This annual procession of joyful music, colourful costumes and jubilant youngsters returns to the streets of Brighton. In an event reputed to be the biggest of its kind in Europe, the 5000 participants from more than 80 schools will be interpreting this year’s theme of Poetry in Motion in their own inventive ways. Join the crowds of proud parents and enchanted spectators to kick off Brighton Festival 2017 with this famous and much-loved tradition.
This year the Parade will be led by the Hot 8 Brass Band who will be bringing some New Orleans style to Brighton’s streets – come and enjoy the first day of fun and don’t forget your camera!
- Sat 6 May, from 10.30am
