Brighton Hilton Metropole 14/03/2014 – 16/03/2014
Ending captive circuses and promoting awareness about whales and dolphins has been one of the main missions by the promoters of Whalefest from the past 20 years or so. It takes place every year in Brighton and is one of the biggest in the world. In 1991 Brighton Aquarium’s captive dolphins were freed back to their Caribbean home. Come then to this incredible event to voice your support for the Long Swim to Freedom campaign, run by the World Cetacean Alliance in partnership with the Free Morgan Foundation and Nabu International.
Come to celebrate the 24th Sussex Beer & Cider Festival from the 6th to the 8th of March at Hove Town Hall. There will be something like 230 types of different beers on sale…and that isn’t exactly what’s available at your local pub around the corner…more beer than you can ever imagine… A large selection of ciders, perries, country wines and British and foreign bottled beers will also be there to keep you quiet and busy. If you look under 25 please bring an ID.
