A walk around Brighton locations that feature in books.


A sponsored trot through the streets of Brighton and the pages of books set here.

On Sunday 16th April, a group of Trustees, charity volunteers and friends will be walking 5 miles through Brighton, following a trail of locations featured in Brighton-set books. From Dorothy Koomson, Peter James and Juno Dawson to Bethan Roberts, Nick Sharratt, Lizzie Enfield, William Shaw, Elly Griffiths, Graham Bartlett, Eva Carter, Umi Sinha and Sue Teddern, and even Jane Austen, William Thackeray and of course Graham Greene's Brighton Rock, all these weave their stories through the streets of Brighton, and we'll be stopping at featured locations to listen to readings of extracts set there, many recorded especially for us by the authors themselves. From bodies found on beaches to snowmen flying over the pavilion domes, from grand balls in seafront hotels and squadrons of Regency soldiers camped out on Hove Lawns to criminals on the run emerging from the smoke of Brighton station, we will follow in the footsteps of others' imaginations, raising money so that local children can have opportunities to tell their own stories and unleash the power of their own imaginations.

Brighton-based young people's writing charity, Little Green Pig, supports children and young people to develop writing skills, confidence and communication skills. We believe passionately in working to improve young people's wellbeing and life chances, giving them space to grow, inspire their imaginations and find their voice. For over 10 years we've worked across East and West Sussex in areas of need with more than 5,500 children and young people between 6 - 18 years.

We're a small charity and rely heavily on donations. We're very grateful for anything you can donate!
