Brighton Stonewall Equality Walk
Sunday 10th May , Brighton-wide
Hundreds of people will join together for Stonewall’s Equality Walk to take in the beautiful Brighton seafront and celebrate diversity. Put on your walking boots, and join the throng in raising sponsorship to educate against bullying and discrimination, for the event’s 10k or 3k walks so that Brighton – and the rest of the world – can continue in establishing equality for all.
Dreams of a Life
Monday 11th, Duke’s at Komedia
A shocking story about a young woman’s life and her sad, heart-wrenching end. Screen-played by the audacious and talented Zawe Ashton, she depicts the life of what seems to be a woman who can only but dream of a life. Part of Brighton’s Festival, a story that is not a happy one, but extremely thought provoking, mesmerising, and underlined with life-changing fables.
I hope you have a sweet tooth from the rise of day, starting at 10am, The Sugarcraft has more going on than the ten tiered cake: with branch tables, competitions open to all, child friendly activities. Feel like a kid in a candy store, with workshops, accredited demonstrations and obviously; Cakes Galore! A fun day out for the serious baker and the family.
UK Subs 22nd May
Fri 22nd, Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
Since 1976 the UK Subs have been the hardest working and one of the best loved punk bands on the live circuit. This is due, in part, to front man and ex-hairdresser Charlie Harper’s integrity and tenacity. They set out to release albums with titles starting with consecutive letters of the alphabet and have just released the critically acclaimed ‘Yellow Leader’.
Hundred Watt Club
Fri 22nd, The Old Market
Having seen most of the acts at Brighton Burlesque, I can say, hand on heart, you’re in for a treat! If you’ve never been to a burlesque show before, you cannot even begin to imagine how much fun you’ll have. Dress for the occasion because it gives the night a certain je ne sais quoi, and watch out for Dave the Bear, he bites!
