BUZZBRTN is lifestyle, listings and budget living in Brighton and beyond.

The best of Brighton, curated.

From BN1’s most-instagrammable espresso martini to kiss-guaranteed first date ideas under a fiver, Buzz Brighton is the new, indispensable guide to Britain’s best city.

We thought Brightonians deserved a different sort of online guide. So we made it.


We’re actively looking for freelance writers to pitch and write articles for our website.

We pay between £17 and £35 per article and expect each article to take 20 to 60 minutes to write, construct and publish. We pay within 7 days of an article being published and an invoice being received.


Our audience is 17-35, youthful, fun, lives in or loves the city, and on a budget. They want to do more with less, love daily new experiences, and share them with friends. They’re progressive politically and environmentally minded. To know what’s trending locally they seek guidance from trusted and relatable voices.


Relatable and personal / Young / Superlative / Fun / Passionate / Endlessly enthusiastic and humorous about the city / Bright / Useful / Lighthearted / Knowledgeable / Pop culture / Brave
