Here is a list of major outdoor events that are taking place in Brighton & Hove in 2018. This list isn't exhaustive as our events programme is continually changing. You can also look at our Events Diary for dates or contact the Events Office for a more detailed events list. The city hosts over 400 outdoor events each year.

Events taking place on Madeira Drive, Brighton Seafront, will result in the closure of the public cycle lane for the whole day. Cyclists are advised to dismount and walk through the event if possible, or use Marine Drive as an alternative route. The middle level terrace along Madeira Drive is currently closed to the public.
