img_1054One of the great things about the Brighton Festival are the free events that draw all of Brighton, and the smart ones from elsewhere that know about how brilliant the festival is, out onto the streets to enjoy the fun.  Thus it was last Friday when the French street artists Droles d’Oiseaux put on a spectacular show using cars, paint and pegs.  Paraded through the streets, the white chain of cars were painted in rainbow colours before being “pegged up” to dry on the Level.  Visually stunning and great fun too it was another triumph for the Festival.  Missed it, well just make sure your here next year and don’t miss out on the fun.  Well ok, here are some photos to see what you missed.


Other highlights of the Festival included the innovative and very clever acrobatic dance troupe Chouf Ouchouf and the Jardin Flambeau fire sculptures and installations brilliantly created by the Compagnie Carabosse in the delightful St Anns Wells Park.
