Children’s Parade

22 Apr 2020

Children's Parade at Home
Sat 2 May 2020, 10.30am for 5 minutes

All of us at Brighton Festival, and our artists at Same Sky were so sad to cancel this year’s Parade, that when received an email from Tobias at Balfour Primary asking if the parade could happen in a different way, we could not resist but do exactly that. Help us keep the spirit of the Children’s Parade alive this year and have your own mini parades at home! 

if you are from one of the 60 Brighton & Hove schools or thousands of children, teachers, parents, artists and volunteers who had already put in so much work into preparing for this year, then all of this love, creativity and imagination won’t be lost.

And if you are not, don’t worry because everyone is welcome! Young and old, local or global, let’s ALL come together and get creative in this celebration of our children, their creativity and incredible imaginations.

Whether you want to conga around your kitchen, wave a flag from your window, blow a whistle from your balcony, shimmy in your sitting room or dress-up on your doorstep – there is no set theme and anything goes!

Find out how you can get involved here.

Brighton Festival & Same Sky's Children's Parade is kindly sponsored by Southern Water. 

As Brighton Festival 2020 has sadly been cancelled, this will include the annual Children’s Parade which would have officially marked the start of the Festival on Sat 2 May 2020.

Based on the latest government advice that projections for the peak of the Covid-19 epidemic in the UK is expected to coincide with the timing of the Festival in May, all planned events have been suspended to reduce the spread of the virus.
