As our campaign has grown since the June 2016 referendum, we have held many different events and meetings  - including our highly successful and well-attended rally at the Labour Party Conference and a fantastic evening event at the Brighton Dome.  Currently we have several initiatives underway, including our Europe Corner stall in New Road outside the Unitarian Church, where we hand out leaflets, collect signatures for petitions, talk to passers-by and share information. It’s all part of our work to be visible, to get Brightonians to support our campaign and make it grow!

Some of our members run a regular club evening: Club Europe Express, at the Rose Hill Tavern. This is a chance to socialise with other Europeans; to exchange views and ideas; and to enjoy music, poetry and other cultural activities.

We are also linking up with numerous other groups that are around the county and beyond: Eastbourne, Newhaven, Lewes, Sevenoaks and more. We aim to change hearts and minds in Sussex and beyond.

If you have ideas for other activities, please contact us!

Upcoming events:


Thu 21 Jan, 7.30pm - Organising Committee Meeting, Craft Beer Company, Upper North Street

Put It To The People March - Sat 23 March 2019, London

Just six days before the Government wants to take Britain out of the EU, join Brighton & Hove for EU and hundreds of thousands of others to march on Parliament with a simple demand: Give the people the final say on Brexit, in a crisis that threatens their living standards, businesses and jobs. 

Brighton & Hove for EU will be congregating from 12 noon at the Achilles Statue near Hyde Park Corner, W1J 7NT. The march is due to set off at 1pm, heading to Parliament Square. 

Transport info to follow. We don't yet know whether there will be coaches from Brighton. There are engineering works again, between Brighton and Three Bridges, but for the October march the bus / train journey was really quite easy.
