Jam Tarts Choir – 8th July
While their name might conjure up some cosy corner of a bygone WI organisation, you’ll be a fool to miss this troupe, who’ve conflated the not-so-traditional form of an (mainly) female choir with indie music. Pipped as Nouvelle Vague with ambitious vocal harmonies instead of bossa nova, the Jam Tarts reinterpret your favourite indie songs from Britpop to electro. A must. Theoldmarket.com
Brighton Gin Festival – 16th July
Gin lovers unite for the first ever Brighton Gin Festival ! From the organisers first came Brew Your Gin, and now they’re working hard to bring you a day of taste bud tantalising flavours. Expect gin sampling and trade stands, gin talks and presentations from some of the finest gin producers, cocktail demos, an indoor gin garden party, and brilliant live DJ. brightonginfestival.co.uk
Love and Information 15-23rd July
Exploring what it means to love and form relationships in the modern, technological world, this show unfolds in a rapid quick-fire succession of scenes, a kaleidoscope of snapshot conversations, at times funny; at times, poignant. It explores the private as well as public consequences of living in the digital age, the overload of information and isolation it brings. newventure.org.uk
