The Big Steam Print 6th-12th August
This summer Phoenix is hosting an exhibition of enormous works created through the brilliant Big Steam Print project. The Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft turned a 90 year old 12.5 tonne vintage steamroller into a giant printing press and took it on a tour. Over 30 artists used it to make their biggest ever prints, with exciting results. phoenixbrighton.org
Brighton Pride 5th-7th August
If you aren’t aware of Brighton’s ultimate event, then you’ve clearly just landed on Earth. Welcome. Join the city as it explodes into a riot of colour in celebration of diversity and general good times. While the main events and live music take place in our picturesque Preston Park, there’s no escaping the sea of rainbow coloured awesomeness throughout the city. Brighton-pride.org

Brunswick Festival – 20/21st August
One of the longest running events in the city, the Brunswick Festival is organised by a group of volunteers and local residents living in Brunswick Square. It offers a varied programme of free and fun activities and entertainment, presenting a mix of established and community acts to keep the flavour local and to celebrate the diverse community of Brunswick Square. brunswickfestival.org.uk
Heartbreak House 16th-21st August
A nation on the brink is drifting towards ruin. On an estate in the Sussex countryside stands Heartbreak House, a privileged zone where rules are suspended. Lovers are switched, hierarchies reversed and strangest of all, people find themselves telling the truth. A summer in Brighton isn’t complete without a visit to BOAT and this show promises to offer a perfect opportunity. brightonopenairtheatre.co.uk
