Black Brighton Market

Black Brighton Market is a place where Black and People of colour have the opportunity to sell their art, goods, services and perform to the general public without having to pay fees. Creating equal opportunities and better profits within the BIPOC community. Black Brighton Market will be held every month.

On The Day…

The day will start with the stallholders arriving at 10am to set up upstairs at The Actors. The doors to the public will then open at 11am where they will be greeted by our ticket handler at the door. As well as entry to an eclectic market with a plethora of items, you have the chance to buy from sellers who you will only find at BBM, with an array of handmade items, environmentally sourced goods, and other eye-catching one-of-a-kind beauties. On top of all of that with your ticket, you also get a show! There will be different performances at every market… ALSO! There will be a raffle every ticket buyer will be entered into on entry, items to be won will be donated from the stallholders. All of this accompanied with the hubbub of food and drinks served downstairs.
More details on the stallholders, their items for sale, and the performers will be posted in due course. The market will then close its doors at 7pm. If you can’t make it or don’t live locally but want to contribute to help out, please scroll down to donate on our GoFundMe!

Black Brighton Market : The Launch

In the run-up to the day, I was most panicked about not being panicked. I had the application deadline so early, that I knew what all the sellers needed and all their information so my planning and all the information I needed was collected and at my fingertips. The venue was also sorted with enough…

We Need You!

BBM are looking for people to join us on the day! We are looking for photographers, videographers, someone to run the music merchandise table, and general help managing the running of the day. Please fill out the form below with a message of what your interests and skills are, and we will get back to you from the email.

I believe this is important for all people of the community. It allows an equal opportunity for the Black and people of Colour to hone in on their craft, and see a specialist market made for them, by them.

The Actors Pub, 4 Prince’s street, Brighton, BN2 1RD


Black Brighton was created by myself; it stemmed from me making friends of colour due to the lack of them in my life. This then turned into a photography project that brought people from the community together, creating a sense of family and solidarity we all needed but didn’t know. Now with a growing community in a predominately white city, I have found myself doing more and more for people like myself, always trying to introduce new ways to create, communicate, and more opportunities in our artistic fields in this creative city.
