Welcome to the What’s on Guide for Brighton & Hove.
Check out the November issue of What’s on Guide!
This event is so popular, its organizers sometimes need to do a reverse PR job on it! Possibly the most famous bonfire night celebration UK-wide, hundreds of thousands of visitors descend on Lewes for this one-night spectacular. Yup, there are fireworks galore, myriad bonfire parties and the most illuminated parade you’ll ever see. But expect crowds; there are plenty of those… Lewesbonfirecelebrations.com
Chvrches – 16th November
Chvrches hail from Glasgow and formed in 2011. The very next year they were mentioned in the BBC Sound of 2013 list and just two years later were nominated for Best New Band at the NME awards. That they can play the Dome is testament to how far the band has come and their latest album, only their second, ‘Every Open Eye’ reinforces this. Brightondome.org
Behind the Scenes Tour – 20th November
Make sure you get in on getting an exclusive glimpse into the part of Brighton’s notorious Preston Manor that’s usually sealed off to the public. This special tour began in September and wraps next month, and with just four dates to choose from during its run, this month’s event couldn’t suit the atmosphere more. Don’t miss out on this fascinating event. Brightonmuseums.org.uk
Royal Pavilion Ice Rink – Opens 8th November
It’s that time of year again! The Royal Pavilion’s annual fixture attracts hundreds of skaters of all ages and abilities, but one thing’s for sure: the kids love it! Penguin shaped stabilisers are available for little ones, while the confident kids can work on their triple axels. You might just have the next Torvill or Dean on your hands… Royalpavilionicerink.co.uk
Christmas Gift Fair Spectacular – 7th November

So whether it’s decorations you’re after, food for the cupboards, or an entire carload of presents for friends and family, make sure you don’t miss out. Oh, and there’s live entertainment too!

The Vaccines – 19th November
Since forming in 2010 this band has gone on to take the world by storm in, what seems to be, a ridiculously short space of time. They claim that their latest album, ‘English Graffiti’ is “genre defining” so you can make your own mind up when they roll into town as part of a world tour that sees them playing even bigger venues.

Herbie Flowers’ Jazz Breakfast – 8th November
While catching an early gig of a Sunday morning might sound counter-intuitive, the legend that is Herbie Flowers is worth getting up early for. If you’re resident in Brighton, make sure you make it to one of these breakfast concerts; if you’re visiting, don’t go home without catching Herbie! After all, there’s coffee and croissants in it for you as well. Brightondome.org
