Things To Do In Brighton This November
Half term is over and the kids are back to school, the weather’s still nice with the sun making an unlikely appearance. Most people’s thoughts are now on Christmas celebrations, however Brighton still has a lot to offer visitors even in November. From Firework nights to Christmas lights, there are a host of events to give you an excuse to visit. Here’s 10 things we’ve selected…
Brighton & Hove’s Lions Fireworks Display, Brighton Racecourse - 5th November
Forget the Lewes Bonfire Celebrations, the Brighton Lions Firework Night, held Brighton Racecourse is the single biggest fireworks display in Sussex. Recommended by the Times as one of the top 10 fireworks displays in the UK, so you’re sure to get your fair share of ooo’s and arrrrr’s. Visually spectacular, with a range of catering on site, it is a great event for families.
Family Fireworks Event, Nevill Recreation Ground - 5th November
A huge family friendly firework event in Nevill Road, Hove, opposite the greyhound stadium. With food stalls available all night, some great entertainment and a 25 minute firework extravaganza.
Sussex Firework Night, Hove Cricket Ground - 5th November
Back again, Brighton & Hove’s Popular Fireworks event returns to Hove Cricket Ground. There’s lots to look forward to on the night, including the massively enhanced pyrotechnic display from Aurora Fireworks and plenty of entertainment in the build-up.
Royal Pavilion Ice Rink, Royal Pavilion Gardens - Starts 5th November
What better way to get in the Christmas spirit than wrapping up warm and ice skating outside with the beautiful backdrop of the Brighton Pavilion. The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink covering 880 square metres is a hugely popular Brighton winter attraction and runs daily until 15th January. A favourite with visitors and locals for the past three years with the lively rinkside bar and kitchen overlooking the rink where you can unwind with a drink and some nice food, it’s fun for all the family. A fabulously romantic and fun way to spend an evening with twinkling Christmas lights and Brighton’s most famous silhouette. www.royalpavilionicerink.co.uk
London to Brighton RAC Veteran car Run, Madeira Drive - 6th November
A great even for all the family! Come and see all the Veteran cars coming in from their London to Brighton run. They tend to travel at about 20mph so the entrants can arrive anytime from 10 am and about 4.30pm. All cars who manage to arrive receive a medal. It’s always a great family event and interesting to see all the old cars. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain for them.
