Don’t forget that you can also buy your tic...ket for our fundraiser on Sunday evening on the door.

The place is fully accessible and level with disabled toilets, including a changing places toilet, and is carpeted, heated and has a bar.

Come and support us to make Disability Pride Brighton 2018 even better than it was in 2017.

BBC News South East contacted me tonight to ask me to do a last minute interview regarding a 16 year old boy with learning disabilities who had been denied by Butlins from going to see his favourite character, Mr Tumble. It is good to see that the media is picking up on disability discrimination. Please excuse the quality of both the recordings!
Heartventure is all about supporting adults with learning disabilities to meet and socialise in a safe and secure environment. The company is run by Carol Wakeford, Daniel Wakeford's mum, as well as her husband Barry Wakeford and Diane Sharkey. Heartventure hosts one or two events a month in Brighton and Hove, including karaoke, quiz nights and disco evenings. The video I shared a couple of days ago is of my daughter, Charlie, dancing away at the Heartventure Valentine's Ball, where she had one of the best times she has ever had - she couldn't stop smiling for days. I will share the video again below. I can thoroughly recommend Heartventure as it is run by such caring people. Please check out their website.

A truly fantastic day. Proud Parkers Photography were so pleased to be part of this event. The inspirational people, both organising and attending on the day made the event such a wonderful place to... be. So many people had their photos taken in the pop up photobooth, accessible to everybody. Smiles and laughter made our day. There was so much going on, great music, food, stalls and so many people enjoying the occasion. I hope this is the first of many. If anybody would like their digital images emailed free of charge please send us a message on our facebook page Proud Parkers Photography - we will be emailing everybody in the next couple of days. Thank you for making us so proud to be part of Disability Pride. :-) See More

Well, what an amazing day, and incredibly well organised. The message was "proudly" delivered! The event itself outperformed some one day festivals I have been to in the past. There were at least thre...e big local "names" (in the field of disability) who were not represented on the day, but that did not affect the quality of the event. Perhaps they will take part in future years! Overheard from one of the marshals - "He was fed up of the transient pedestrians complaining about the crowds,and they should just f**k off because THIS was what the day is all about". And he was right! See More

It was amazing! So great to see everyone coming together to celebrate being themselves. Couldn't have asked for better weather. It's great to see something so beautiful come from a negative action. We...ll done Jenny & all of the organisers for making this possible, & well done to all those who attended & made the day beautiful! See More
