The LGBT community fair will feature a range of stalls with information about events such as BiCon, local LBGT groups, and things for sale. If you would like to run a stall, please contact the team immediately using one of the links on the Contact Us page.


We will break for dinner between 6 & 8pm, to transform the main room into the venue for the evening entertainments. It is essential that everyone who's not part of the team leaves so we can move equipment around safely. The hotel has a restaurant and coffee shop. We're hoping to have some extra restaurant recommendations available on the front desk, in the programme, or even on the web site - check back nearer the time! Usually various people volunteer to lead dinner expeditions to e.g. the vegetarian pub, the eat-as-much-as-you-like Chinese, the Indian buffet place. A large range of foodstuffs are available in Brighton and it is particularly easy to find vegetarian & vegan meals compared to most other cities.

Evening Entertainment

The evening entertainments will begin at 8pm. Speed dating will run from 8-9pm and promises to be great fun. There will also be spacehopper racing! A Brighton Bothways Winter Pride favourite, making its first appearance at Brighton BiFest. Who will be crowned BiFest spacehopper racing champion 2009?

A glittering array of bi community DJs will play music to dance to in the main room. There will also be a gaming room with various card and board games e.g. Scrabble, Fluxx, Settlers of Catan. Feel free to bring your own games along and claim a table. A space will be available for quiet chatting, and crafting may continue into the evening.

BiFest will close at midnight.
