Children's Parade At Large

Sat 1 - Mon 31 May 2021

Honouring the spirit of the iconic community event

The spectacular Children’s Parade traditionally marks the opening day of Brighton Festival. This year on Saturday 1 May, 10.30am, there will be an online fanfare and, although there will be no Parade in the city,  we encourage families or school groups to celebrate locally in a way that is safe - whether this is in the playground, in the garden or at home. Though we cannot gather, we can still have a beautiful and fun celebration of creativity in a safe and inclusive way and everyone can get involved!  

Community arts charity Same Sky (who has produced the much-loved event for over 30 years) will be offering alternative activities so that schools and community groups can make their own flags and artwork, and even learn a dance routine to the specially commissioned Children’s Parade music, to honour the spirit of the event.

Links to the tutorials will be available on Same Sky's webpage from Monday 19 April.
