Made 2014


Made is Brighton’s design and craft fair. It has been solidly established over the years as the perfect environment for purchasing high quality craft and design directly from the actual best markets across the country. Also a great opportunity for the seller to be directly in contact with the consumer.  There will be hundreds of contemporary and highly original makers and designers across all media, from jewellery to clothing, to furniture and so on.

Well well here’s the official website

Family Firework Spectacular 2014


If you love staring at the black sky to the point of getting neck pain this is for you. This event is supposed to be for everyone but obviously not for those with eye injuries, although the sound and the vibration produced by the fireworks could still deliver pretty good.  There will be food stalls and the usual useless stuff to buy for kids which I myself buy for moi every year, as I love how uselessness can sometime turn out to be pretty useful.  Here’s the official website 

Brighton Early Music Festival 2014

The early music festival, as every year, is back to Brighton with a twist. Yes, with that. Do you know when you get up in the morning, very early, to the sound of your silly radio bursting out the new whatever single, in your face?… yeah, that’s exactly what early music is. Like soooo early you would love to crush your radio to the sound of….that Early Music….wow…. I’m sure by now you have figured out what this thing about music is and you have totally been captured by its divine interconnection. But if you, like myself, have not understood a word of the meaning of the above depiction, then an official website may give you the answers you are looking for, click here

Oxjam Brighton Festival 2014


If you love fighting poverty this is for you. Although the sound of that sentence may sound a bit of a contradiction, as the very action of fighting turns always out to be an over-complication for any related events, but if some of you feels the compelling force of fighting something you believe necessary, then the answer is always one: yes you must go for it! No one will be able to judge you for the simple reason that the very action of judging is directly proportional to responsibility and when one feels the compelling need to act, the consequent responsibility for it collapses, due to the interactions of that compelling action bound to the impossibility of controlling the mechanics of the origin of it, which is originated by its own environment, the body constitution/biology, its influence from the subject’s education and the consequent correlation to the subject’s subconscious which also happens to be inevitable due to its impossibility of controlling it consciously. Then, but only then, to participate to this event becomes imperative.

Ice Rink Brighton 2014

08/11/2014  The Pavillion

The ice rink is back! We all enjoyed people falling over on the beautiful ice rink in front of the Pavilion last year so why not get in there this year too and smash each other up again?! Why not? …Cause it hurts! Yesss! And that’s the beauty of it! I guess… there is something quite amazing about falling face down on the hard ice in a beautiful sunny day, I don’t know what exactly but there must be something…hmmm… The 800 square metre rink has space for 250 skaters per session so plenty of room for everyone! Get cute. Here’s some more info.





RAC Veteran Car Run


Right, so this event is not a race but a run…well it’s easy to see why, these cars are so slow (max 20mph) that having them racing would be beyond boring, kind of like watching snails competing with each other…So no, it ain’t going to be a race. You could do two things with these babies, watching them smashing up in a destruction derby or taking them on a very slow fashion show run, unfortunately the second option got through. If you are into Lego I guess you may enjoy this even better. Here’s some more details.
