Brighton Girl Guide: 7 Events You Shouldn’t Miss In October
With the summer being gone and the days getting shorter, October can be a difficult month. While it can be tempting to spend autumn nights wrapped up in a blanket eating your feelings and binge-watching Netflix, Brighton still has loads of fun and interesting events to help you get out the house and do away with those wintery blues!
What better way is there to relax after a hard day than getting your craft on? Now you can get creative every week at the Hope and Ruin. The pub will be holding three ‘Collage Club’ nights in October for all of you crafty Brighton Gals. All the card, magazines and other materials will be provided and there’s even talk of a free pint for the best collage. - This is a FREE event!
If you’re in need of some sister solidarity, Gal Pals is your night! Playing all your favourite female-fronted pop, hip-hop and rock, Gal Pals was launched in 2015 to tackle the lack of nights for Queer women and non-binary folks in London and Brighton. Open to all LGBT gals and, of course, their pals! Gal Pals is an inclusive event where you can expect to hear RiRi, Beyonce and so much more. It starts at 11 and goes until 3 am.

Sustainable fashion bloggers, Harriet and Hermione, founded the Revival Collective hoping to shine a light on the ethical and environmental impact of the fashion industry. Now they’re organising their second clothes swap at Presuming Ed’s Coffeehouse to help us put an end to the “throw-away mentality.” This event has limited capacity, so grab your tickets soon to get the best swag.

We are hosting our monthly coffee meet up upstairs at Marwood Bar and Coffeehouse. We will meet from 11am and will be chatting, networking and have amazing coffee and tea. Join and don’t miss our exclusive Marwood offer for coffee and a cake for £4.50 by identifying as a BG at the counter (delicious vegan options also).
Like every month, on the 17th we are getting together again to have some fun evening drinks and get to know the Brighton Girl community. See new and familiar faces, have a laugh or two and exchange ideas and stories with each other. This time at the new Bison Beer pub on North Road.
The newly founded Brighton Girl Book Club is having their first meet up! We couldn’t be more excited that two Brighto Girls have come forward and created this club due to high demand in the community. It is even more exciting to announce that Allie Rogers, author of the first book “Little Gold”, is going to join the session and take part in the discussion. Anyone can suggest a title for next month’s book which will then be voted for. Buy this months copy via the link below:
For a culture fix - Harley Weir’s “Homes” is a series of photographs taken in the former refugee camp, “The Jungle” in Calais in 2016. The photographs were taken just before and also during the clearing of the camp and show the ingenuity and perseverance of its residents. The exhibition is on until November, but the artist will be giving a tour of his work on the 24th October.
This is a FREE event, but booking is required.
