The Ledward Centre

Named after James Ledward, one of the city’s most prominent supporters of LGBTQ+ rights, this space is a lasting tribute to his memory and the contributions he made towards our entire community.

From the building itself – light, modern and accessible – to the services and activities for which it is home, The Ledward Centre lives and breathes the values that make the full rainbow of Brighton’s LGBTQ+ community so vibrant and proud.

Our café is open for business 10:30am-4:30pm Tuesday – Saturday and 10:30am – 4:00pm on Sundays. Serving hot and cold drinks and snacks, it’s the ideal spot to catch up with friends, watch the world go by or meet some of our Ledward Centre family.

We have a pay-it-forward board whereby those with extra can donate a coffee for someone else in the community who needs one.

There are a variety of regular and irregular meetups and events taking place in the café, please keep an eye on our What’s On page or our social media for more information. We are dog and family friendly.
