Everybody knows that we love London town. Look, anyone who hasn't been living under a rock knows that it's a remarkable place.

A place that gives our nation's capital some serious competition for England's best city. A place that holds a humongous space in our hearts. Where are we talking about? We're on about the brilliant city of Brighton.

Charmingly referred to as "London by Sea", Brighton is a special place for multiple reasons. It's aesthetic, coastal, multicultural, artsy, sunny. It's arguably the UK's top spot for vegan cuisine. Plus it's mighty inclusive to LGBTQIA+ folks, and has remained a hub for members of the rainbow community for decades now.

We love Brighton, but we're not here to list off fun facts about it!

We're here to handle a very important topic: private hire. Brighton has a plethora of awesome venues for hire. And in true diverse fashion, venues in Brighton come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you want a large space for a wedding after party, or a smaller site for an intimate birthday gathering, you'll find something. In short, there are as many venues for hire in Brighton than there are cutesy rooftop cafes.

But alas, with great choice comes an even greater opportunity for indecisiveness. And if you're reading this, it's likely that you're looking to host an event in Brighton. And you have a lot of questions about it. And naturally, you don't know where to start.

Proud is famous throughout the country for captivating cabarets and hilarious drag shows hosted by an eclectic bunch of burlesque artists, musicians and circus and drag performers.
