England’s first Disability Pride festival took place in Brighton. The one-day festival celebrated and educated people about all physical and mental disabilities.  The event in New Road was supported by disability charities Scope & Amaze, and was funded by a £10,000 National Lottery grant. It was the brainchild of Jenny Skelton who has three adopted children, all with special needs.

The event ran concurrently with Disability Pride events in New York & Italy.
