PUSH THE PROM THIS SATURDAY!
Push The Prom is almost here, with less than ONE WEEK to go… This year we teamed up with the Brighton Longboard Ladies, Brash Skate & Create and Nefarious Crew who will be bringing you a zine making workshop, Hungry Hungry Hippos on Skateboards and a Longboarding X Skateboarding Trick Swap!
We have received all of the prizes from our sponsors who include HUF, Brixton, Out Of Step, Thrasher Mag, Real Skateboards, Two Seasons Skate Store, Story Clothing, Bones Wheels and more!
Those hoping to attend should get their travel itinerary sorted ASAP as prices for hotels and trains are going up super quick! If you are looking to car-pool then head to our Facebook event page to have a chat with others who are attending!
MEET US AT NOON – The address for our meeting place is…
BRIGHTON WEST PIER
129 King’s Rd,
ALTERNATIVELY, If you don’t feel up for the promenade push, you can meet us at Hove Lagoon Skatepark around 2pm!
The nearest train station to West Pier is Brighton Station and to Hove Lagoon is actually Portslade Station (about a 15 min walk / 10 min skate).

We recommend travelling to Brighton Station if meeting on West Pier, and Portslade or Hove station if meeting at Hove Lagoon Skatepark.
National Express run many routes to Brighton. Brighton coach station is near the pier.
Coastliner 700 service.

Use Sat-Nav or Google Maps with the postcode BN1 2FA.
The West Pier is on Kings Road.
There is parking at a few places although the charge is quite high – take a look at this website to help you find somewhere!
Areas fill up quickly in the summer and we would advise car sharing where possible! To find people to car share with please post on our facebook event page and we will try and find someone that lives in or passes your area
SOFT WHEELS will make the cruise along the seafront a lot more enjoyable so if you own any, bring them along and change them before we Push The Prom – At roughly 2 miles… It can feel like quite a long way on that rough concrete!
The event is absolutely free, so there’s no excuse not to gather up your friends and come along to celebrate ‘Go Skateboarding Day!’ – Don’t forget that this event is for everyone (the more the merrier!)
We’ll also have a little pop up shop selling t-shirts and other bits and bobs to raise money for future jams and events so don’t forget to bring your pocket money!
MASSIVE thanks to everyone who’s continuing to get involved in helping to make this event happen, big up to Lucy Adams and Brighton & Hove Skateparks Association & also to the Brighton She Shredders and Brighton Longboarders, and huge thanks to our sponsors!
