We are thrilled to see the return of events to the city and one of the biggest festivals to return this year is the fabulous Brighton Fringe. The Fringe is known for hosting a variety of events such as comedy, cabaret, theatre and dance but did you know that the programme also includes walking tours? Of course this being the Fringe each of the tours offers something a little different! 

So to help you get reacquainted with our beautiful city we’ve selected some of our favourites from this year’s Brighton Fringe programme....

Brighton Food Tours

The V.I.B (Very Independent Brighton) Food Tour is a celebration of independent Brighton - packed with the eclectic sights and tastes from the unique makers to the unsung heroes of Brighton's indie food and drink scene. Over approximately 3 hours you'll get a chocolate box selection of the best foodie hot spots that quirky, independent Brighton has to offer. You might visit off-the-beaten-track street food stalls, hear about eco-aware sustainable food systems, get down & dirty with the most passionate burger-makers in town, meet food industry revolutionaries and a whole lot more.

All dietary requirements must be emailed in advance of the tour to hello@brightonfoodtours.com.


Guru Dudu's Silent Disco Walking Tours

The Guru Dudu team have adapted their tours to be Covid-safe with smaller tour size and new routes.

Enjoy hilarious dance-walking tours of spontaneous flash mob dancing through the streets, interpretative dancing around local landmarks and lots of play, love and laughter. Everyone wears headphones (supplied and cleaned after each use) and can hear the fun commentary from the tour guide and the dance mix of uplifting favourites from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s.

You will need to wear comfortable footwear and if possibe we advice going empty handed as this will hamper your dance moves! (Why not replace the handbag with a bum-bag?)

This year there are three starting locations: New Road (avoiding heavily congested areas), BA i360 and Preston Park.


Only in Brighton

What connects ABBA and the Portuguese Revolution? Mount Everest and a supermarket in Hove? A stained wall and the genesis of a worldwide retail brand? What's the story behind a 'same-sex' wedding in 1923? Britain's most useless monarch? And why is my charming Regency property damp and crumbling?

Discover the real spirit of Brighton in a lively, funny and informative quest to uncover what makes this city unique - and a little bit weird.


Boogie Shoes Silent Disco Walking Party Brighton Seaside Special

Boogie Shoes Silent Disco Walking Party returns to beautiful Brighton with their 'Super Seaside Special'! It’s the outrageous fun outdoor party that will have you dancing and singing in the bracing sea air, as you weave your way through the streets and landmarks of glorious Brighton!

Mama Roo will lead you and provide the laughs and commentary as your headphones pump out the sing-along and dance-along hits from now to back in the day (with maybe the odd sea shanty thrown in). Salty dogs, pirates, bathing beauties, mermaids and landlubbers all welcome.

Pack light, bring a drink and suitable footwear for walking (and dancing!)

To ensure your safety, physical distancing is maintained throughout the tour and all headphones (provided as part of ticket) are sanitised before and after use.

All aboard the love boat!


Geoffrey Mead's London Road Tour

London Road is an area rapidly regenerating after years of inner city decline. New businesses have moved in, with improvements to the Open Market and The Level, new housing at the Co-op, New England and on Ditchling Road, and a general feeling of urban regrowth. The physical geography, historic nature of the buildings and layout of the former farmland bubbles through into the 21st century scene. This tour takes in history and landscape, past industry and present day housing.


Brighton Fringe runs from 28 May with over 500 events taking place both in person and online. To browse the full programme and book tickets visit: https://www.brightonfringe.org/whats-on or download the Brighton Fringe app available on the App Store or Google Play.
