The Sea Life Centre in Brighton is hosting a fantastic Christmas Tree Festival this year for the first time. Many Brighton businesses have given their time to produce some wonderfully decorated trees for the public to view whilst they marvel at the sea creatures on display.
The event is to raise money for charity and as all visitors can donate to the charity represented by their favourite tree. The Oriental is proudly supporting the Brighton Peace and Environment Centre which promotes and educates kids on green issues affecting the world.
The best tree will be judged on Boxing Day when admission prices are reduced to £9 with late opening.
The Oriental team (with a lot of much appreciated help from the Brighton Body Casting Centre) have opted for a cocktail inspired theme for our baubles and we are very pleased with the result. Please take the time to go and visit all the trees over the festive period and enjoy both the trees and fish.
The judging has been done and the trees are still up until 31 December so make sure you go to find out the winners and catch all the trees before they are gone! we still have rooms available for tonight and tomorrow. http://www.orientalbrighton.co.uk/
