Brunswick Festival 2023 this August

Once again, Brunswick Festival will be bringing people together for a fabulous and fun weekend of free music and entertainment for the whole community. Heading to the beautiful surroundings of Brunswick Square on Sat 19 – Sun 20 Aug, this vibrant community festival has grown over the years from being a low-key picnic on the green to now encompasses a full weekend of activity. 

You can expect a fun filled family weekend with a free programme

This will include a spectacular children’s parade and the Willowisp family area with circus skills and arts and crafts, for 0-90. Alongside this is a bustling marketplace with a wonderful and eclectic array of stalls selling bric-a-brac, art prints, home made goods, vintage clothes and charity information stands promoting their cause. A world food area with wholesome tasty delights and healthy snacks. A tea tent with the best home made cakes on earth! The ‘Brunswick Tavern’ with real ale, cider, wine, beer and jugs of refreshing Pimms.

There’s a fantastic line up of DJs and bands playing a wide range of music; from blues, jazz and soul, to folk, Latin and ska. Alongside professional acts there’s have a showcase of young talent and emerging bands from Brighton School of Singing and the Cascade Creative Recovery Choir.

“The Festival provides a brilliant opportunity for local communities to connect,” Says Festival Director, Veronica Stephens.

“It brings people together for a much-needed moment of joyful celebration – a veritable tonic for the challenging times we currently live in.”

Now celebrating it’s 41st edition, this is one of the longest running community festivals in the city. Since 2022 the festival has been working in partnership with Brighton and Hove Heritage Commission.  This is a fantastic new partnership that will help sustain and develop the festival for the future and support us to continue with our mission to offer diverse cultural activity that is free, inclusive and accessible to all.
