ANTIQUES, COLLECTABLES & VINTAGE FAIR

BRIGHTON & HOVE FOOD FESTIVAL
The south of England’s biggest Food and Drinks Festival
Sample hot foods from local restaurants alongside produce to buy and take home from local producers including wines beers and ciders. Talks, chefs, good food, good drink, great smells…you know the kind of thing.
Running for all three days of the Bank Holiday on Hove Lawns (think green grass by the sea against a backdrop of Regency buildings), it is a free family friendly festival – young ones can get busy with badge making and cup cake decorating plus there is a Guess the Spice game.
HEAR OPERA at BRIGHTON’S OPEN AIR THEATRE
On Sunday afternoon August 27: Morzart’s Cosi fan Tutte sung in English by a cast of six professional singers, accompanied by piano.(And if you’re not familar with the opera, the plot is about two men playing a silly game to find whose girlfriend will be the more faithful. What could go wrong with that?)Some tickets still left. Book HERE
JAZZ at the ROYAL PAVILION GARDENS
What could be better than listening to some cool sounds in the sunshine on Sunday afternoon? My brother in law is playing sax so I know it’s going to be good. And it’s free…
SWIM at SALTDEAN LIDO
The recently re-opened Art Deco open air swimming pool on the outskirts of Brighton is bound to be very busy. Book tickets in advance
