@ Alcotraz Penitentiary: Brighton on Various dates from Thursday 30th December 2021

Calling all criminal masterminds, Alcatraz Cell Block One Three is incarcerating new inmates for a thrilling night of debauchery and deceit. Don your boilersuit and find yourself locked behind bars with a team of crooked guards and seasoned criminals who also just happen to be expert mixologists - result.

They may be one of Brighton's most glitzy vintage retreats, but that doesn't mean that Proud Brighton team don't want to get a little freaky on a Friday night in the city. Showcasing some of the finest burlesque and cabaret dancers in town, you'll be able to dabble and dance in one of the rowdiest parties in the city. Even partake in Proud Brighton's very own 'Wheel of Fortune' if the night so takes you. 

Lucky Voice Brighton is hosting an amazing bottomless brunch, where you can feast on Bon Vivant street food washed down by two hours of bottomless cocktails. But that's not all, tickets also include glitter face painting, hilarious games and even an hour in your very own private karaoke booth.
