About this year’s venue and hotel

This year we’re going to be beside the seaside – we’re going to be at the Thistle Hotel Brighton.

This four-star Brighton hotel is as comfortable, relaxed and easy-going as the city itself. Thistle Brighton is one of the few hotels in Brighton situated directly on the seafront, minutes from Brighton Pier. Thistle Brighton hotel is also located within minutes of Churchill Square, where you’ll discover some of South England’s best shopping, theatre and entertainment.
