There’s a lot going on this weekend in Brighton. It’s Black Friday today and we’ll officially enter into the Christmas season with advent beginning on Sunday! Who’s ready?
Friday 29th November

Another youth climate strike will take place on Friday. The group will be starting at Madeira Drive from 11am and are expected to continue marching well into the afternoon. The strike aims to raise awareness of over consumption and the fast fashion industry.

Black Friday Free Market @ Churchill Square
Extinction Rebellion invites you to their alternative Black Friday free market. If you have any clothes, books or gifts that you think would make a good present for someone, bring them to the market on the day or you can drop them off beforehand at a number of locations:
Kernel Of Hove, 2 Victoria Terrace, Hove, BN3 2WB.
Harriet’s Of Hove, 48 Blatchington Rd, Hove BN3 3YH.
The XR office, 39-41 Surrey Street, Brighton, BN1 3XE.
The concept is simple: bring what you no longer use and take home what catches your eye. XR hope that this ‘free market’ idea will provide a small taste of how a future circular economy would work, and already is in some parts of the world. They will have a clothes stall, toy stall, book stall, wreathe stall, speakers corner and more.
14:00-19:00. Outside Churchill Square, Russell Pl, Brighton BN1 2RG.
