Jardin Flambeau – Review

Compagne Carabosse are a french company who travel around europe staging fire displays at various landmarks.
Last weekend they came to Brighton and I went to check it out. . .

Hundreds of people headed to Ann’s Well Gardens last weekend to check out the fire display that was set up as part Brighton Festival. The whole place was lit up high and low with a variety of lanterns and small fires. There were also a number of interesting features (some bizarre and some breath-taking . . . !) , a small cafe and three or four musical acts.It was a beautiful sight that took my breath away. After exploring , I found myself spending an hour or so sitting in front of a candle-lit stage area where I watched an incredible musician play atmospheric music using a loop peddle.

The vibe of the whole evening was amazing. I strongly recommend going next year or finding one of the company’s other locations.
Here are some of my photos from the night but if you wish to see more then please click here
