Things To Do In Brighton in December
We've been lucky enough in Brighton to have had some amazing sunny days through November. Although, like today, the sky is blue and the sun is shining and Brighton's seafront looks spectacular, there is definitely a winter nip in the air - Christmas is coming! It's the perfect time of year to wrap up and take a seafront walk; Brighton is full of festive fun throughout the city. So don't spend your time sat at home in front of the TV. Brighton has some of the traditional and more unusual Christmas activities that are sure to give you that Christmas glow.
The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink
With the stunning backdrop of the Royal Pavilion, twinkling lights and a Christmassy atmosphere, ice skating at the Pavilion Ice Rink is an absolute must! Wrap up warm and take yourself along to this open air winter wonderland. With a Jamie Oliver pop-up restaurant and bags of Christmas cheer, it’s perfect for a family trip, a romantic evening or just for fun with friends.
Artists Open Houses – Weekends In December

Smugglers’ Night : Rottingdean – 7th December
Don’t let the weather ‘Shiver your timbers’! Join the people of Rottingdean in this annual event which sees an evening with a torch light procession, with literally 100’s of pirates and smugglers parading to the sound of drums and ending with a spectacular firework display on the beach. So, come to the birth place of Kipling’s ‘A Smugglers’ Song’ for a night of flicking flames, the glow of the fire and pirate song – oooh arrrrrrr.
Santa Dash : Hove Lawns, 7th December

Craftaganza : Fabrica Gallery, 7-8th December
If you didn’t over spend on Black Friday and are still in need of that illusive Christmas gift, then head over to Craftaganza. A craft and handmade market where Brighton makers offer their lovingly produced wares, often much better than their mass-produced alternative.

Christmas Pudding Race : New Road, Brighton – 14th December
The Great Christmas Pudding race is sure to be the strangest race you have ever seen. Teams of 5, in fancy dress battle it out to run an obstacle course of general silliness whilst balancing a Christmas Pudding.

It’s a spectacular event to watch from the city, before their final destination on the beach. Here a fire and fireworks show begin, with tradition being for lantern bearers to throw you lantern into the fire along with their hopes and fears and a wish for the year ahead. http://www.burningtheclocks.co.uk
