March is International Women’s Month and we know the past couple of years has been tough. Out and About is all about helping LGBTQIA women and those who are non-binary, connect through shared experiences. So this is your opportunity to try new experiences and meet new (and old!) friends in the UK’s unofficial Queer Capital – Brighton.

A weekend in Brighton for LGBTQIA women and those that are non-binary. Out and About will work with local providers to set up activity across the weekend. This will include; wild swimming, a guided hike, a walking tour of the city, evening entertainment, plus more.

You can come for a day, an evening or all weekend (we will provide links to activities). Accommodation will not be provided.


7.15 pm Friday 4th – Meet up at Shelter Hall (https://www.shelterhall.co.uk/) we have tables booked for all those that will have paid the £10 and confirmed they are coming.

Saturday from 11am- you will have a choice of three activities

Dependent on weather there may be an option for those to join a swim. Please note this will be at your own risk. It is recommended you only go if you are used to sea swimming.


We will not be providing accommodation but a few people are staying here https://www.churchillbrighton.com


There is a small entry price to attend, this ensures all those who are helping to organise get paid for their time and contribution.

As we have had used the £10 to save tables at bar, if you have not paid you will not be able to join us.
