Welcome to the What’s on Guide for Brighton & Hove.
Check out the December issue of What’s on Guide
Bring on the glitter, the carol singers, girls in santa outfits crying in West Street even Donner & Blitzen. To quote Noddy Holder coining it in with “It’s Christmas!” Indeed it is. But – rather like the puppies – What’s On is not just for Christmas and NYE but with this double issue we cover January too! Here’s my peek into the next two months. Seasons greetings to you all.
Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra
Weds 31st Dec Brighton Dome
This fund-raising concert for the John Carewe Brighton Orchestra Trust to further support Brighton’s Philharmonic Orchestra is hoping to begin your New Year’s celebrations in a grandiose and bombastic manner. Joined by Portuguese soprano Susana Gasper, the ensemble will be blending the timeless classics of the Strauss Family with the best-loved dance music and arias from the rich history of classical music. brightondome.org
Weds 21st Jan 2015 at Concorde2
What the heck isn’t to love and turn positively feral to than a band from Tennessee who specialise in hillbilly cover versions of some of the globe’s most seminal pieces of rock? ‘Creep’ by Radiohead axed out purely through the power of banjos, or ‘Highway To Hell’ in its entirety in the shape of a guerrilla barn dance? A genius night out. Concorde2.co.uk
Fri 30th Jan 2015 at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
Can’t get enough of all the stupendous garage rock that’s floating around currently? Then get your shake on down to one of Brighton’s most intimate venues to catch the superb Tim Presley aka White Fence. Touring his 2014 album, For the Recently Found Innocent, the verdict is that you won’t be on the fence about this gig’s excellence. (Sorry.) drinkinbrighton.co.uk
