TAKEPART is growing as the biggest celebration of sport and physical activity in the
country. Across the two week festival, people of all ages are given the opportunity to try
out a wide range of sports for free, in a fun and non-competitive setting. The aim is to
help people to find a sport that they like. They can have a go at anything from Nordic
Walking to Petanque. If people are encouraged to increase their participation, they will
benefit from a more active and healthy lifestyle. The wide programme of events and
taster sessions shows people what sport can offer them, highlighting the vast range of
opportunities across the many sports clubs and facilities in Brighton & Hove. Many
activities are things that families can do together. Most of the events are free and
designed to be fun.
It is organised by Brighton & Hove Council and NHS Brighton and Hove and Dorothy Stringer School. TAKEPART is supported by many businesses and organisations.
TAKEPART is now constituted as a charity supported by these three main funders and partners.
The festival starts with a major launch in Preston Park; this full day of free activities is
followed by two weeks of taster sessions and special events. Festival weekends are
high-spots, with TAKEPART Local giving people the chance to try out the sports
available in the local area and a Seafront Weekend of water and beach sports.
Our aim is simple - to use the London 2012 Olympics to encourage more people to get more active more often.
