Social enterprise
Geographical remit: 


  1. To provide a social space for LGBTQ+ people and their allies. We hope that this will address the loneliness and isolation many in our community face, as well as providing a sober LGBTQ+ space that operates during the day.
  • To promote LGBTQ+ work. Through our gallery and bookable spaces we aim to ensure LGBTQ+ people have somewhere to showcase and promote their work, creative or otherwise.
  • To support LGBTQ+ wellbeing. We aim to address as many issues as we can and to hold space for everyone else in our community doing incredible things.

Our space includes a café, gallery and cinema as well as several bookable meeting rooms and (soon to be) a community kitchen for preparing and sharing food together.


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.
