Easter is approaching so as every year The Passion of Christ is to be remembered. Soul By The Sea is again bringing to Brighton its outdoor depiction of the popular moments in which Christ was arrested and crucified, up until his resurrection.

In 1981, the painter Ned Hoskins opened his house to the public to show and sell his artwork. A year later more artists decided to do so with their own paintings. 30 years on and the event has grown so much to become the first and the biggest of its kind in UK, generating over £1mil in sales every year. Ned’s work, which is constantly developing his work, is inspired by landscape and he will be showing paintings and drawings from throughout his career. 109 Stanford Avenue, Brighton BN1 6FA.

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.

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.

The 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!
