The Brighton Festival Children’s Parade is a free spectator event.
For over 25 years the Children’s Parade has opened the Brighton Festival, with 5,000 local schoolchildren, stepping into showstopping costumes they have designed and made themselves.
Almost 80 local schools, infant to secondary, take part and enjoy a real sense of pride as their hard work turns into a vibrant procession of dance, drama and fun for the whole city to watch. Around 10,000 people come along to see the parade and be part of the largest annual children’s event in the UK.
The Children’s Parade is a unique Brighton event produced by Same Sky for the Brighton Festival.
