Find us at Brighton Pride 2014
This year Blagss is proud to be taking part in the Pride Parade - so you can see us on the streets - we are a Walking Tableau. Give us a cheery shout as we walk by!
You can also find us in the Park - we will be in the heart of the Community Village where we are running a stall. Do come along and chat with us about your favourite sport or sports person! Find out how you can get involved with us playing sport.
Blagss is delighted to be invited by the Pride organisers to join them in putting on a fun afternoon of sports in Preston Park on 27th July - to follow the Rainbow Run - a fun 5 km run in the Park. Have a look at http://www.brighton-pride.org/rainbow_run.php for more details and how to enter a team.
