Brighton Lands Month-Long Central Park Pop-Up Venue For Live Music & Euros

Taking over Valley Gardens, Central Park will offer a range of free and ticketed events across four weeks for up to 2000 people, including big-name clubbing from Glitterbox and Hospitality, live music from Rhythm Of The 90s, and live football with every game from the Euros showing on the south of England's biggest screen

Set against the backdrop of St Peter's Church in Brighton, Central Park has been revealed as a month-long, pop-up venue taking place from 14th June to 14th July.

Live music from festival favourites Rhythm Of The 90s, and every game of the Euro 2024 football tournament presented by fanpark specialists 4TheFans

Add in carefully curated, food and drink from local traders and it"s clear there will be no better place to enjoy the summer than Central Park. 

Each week will see a range of events covering up to six days of the week, depending on dates, with still more of the exciting full events programme to be announced. 

However big the music offering is, no one should forget the dream of football coming home and the huge Euro 2024 tournament. 

It's hard to believe it's been three years since England fell at the last hurdle, losing to Italy in the final of Euro 2020.

Central Park is the only place to watch, with every game from the tournament available on the giant screen, capturing the big game atmosphere as 2000 fans come together to roar on the national team. 

Except for the England games, fans can watch the Euros free of charge at Central Park.

Each game will also feature banter and match analysis, with Paul Merson, Ian Holloway, and Matt Le Tissier already confirmed for Brighton. 

Tickets for individual events start at £17.50 + b/f with the full calendar available at
