Brighton Book Festival
Our project is to create Brighton Book Festival – a grassroots festival run and hosted by Afrori Books, The Feminist Bookshop and our volunteer team from 24th- 26th June.
We want to create a festival for the people of Brighton & Hove that will:
- spotlight incredible local writers from all backgrounds
- put emerging writers on platforms alongside bestselling authors
- partner with local charities to deliver events for our local communities, especially young people
We are raising money to help us make the festival as accessible as possible, offering concessionary/free ticket options while ensuring creatives and partners are all paid
We especially need to raise funds for the family festival which includes craft activities, live readings, hair education on styling Afro-Caribbean hair and a panel discussion about representation in children’s books.
Support from Brighton Soup would allow us to fund the events and offer tickets to families who might not otherwise be able to attend.

Bushcraft Heroes is all about creating free wilderness experiences for urban kids and their grown-ups. We aim to teach bushcraft and survival skills, as well as environmental education in the safe environment of our Sussex woodland.
Did you know, that there are so many kids who’ve never experienced the wonders of the woodland? The experience encourages outdoor play, family connection and enjoying the natural environment which boosts well being. Every donation enables us to keep these experiences completely free of charge.
