Brighton Marathon 2014


Here it comes! Thousands of runners are getting ready to literally invade the city of Brighton for the 99th consecutive year. The road race run is over a distance of 26 miles. On 2013 the race has reached a 20% increase on entries counting over 18.000. A massive number considering the narrow streets of tiny Brighton. Hopefully this year there won’t be more or the whole town will face sudden sinking in the cold water of the sea…Thousands also will be the Brighton seagulls expected due to the obvious abundance of food from the participants and the audience. So bring an umbrella just in case. Here’s further details.

Ice Age Sussex

Brighton Museum & Royal Pavilion   –   16/03/2013 – 18/01/2014

Ice Age EuropeA bit of history here. If you have an inclination for archaeology or you simply find the process and research of our past as human beings on Earth interesting, there will be a new display in town this month about the ice age that will definitely grab your attention. A great exploration that stretches from the climate change process to the story of man as we know it today, with particular attention to the Victorian ‘great bone rush’ and the Boxgrove Man, the oldest known human ancestors in Britain.  For More info click here.


Royal Pavilion’s Ice Rink

Ice-rink-at-night-credit-Robert LeightonThe ice rink is still on! Until the 19th of January. It’s simply wonderful to be able to skate by such an amazing building and Brighton council made it all possible for the consecutive 4th year! There’s also a cafe and a restaurant next to it so to have a great overall experience.  The 800 square metre rink has space for 250 skaters per session so plenty of room for everyone!
