It's Brighton Festival time of year and the city of Brighton & Hove will be full of entertainment and celebration. There is an exciting programme of cultural events in celebration of this year’s Guest Director - Aung San Suu Kyi and her passionate plea for peace in Burma. You can see Aung San Suu Kyi's message here
Brighton really does become a sight to behold with art, music and installations everywhere you turn.
Walking through our park St Ann's Well Garden today we saw a big team of people including the company Firefly Solar setting up some amazing constructions that will become a Fire Garden, a Jardin Flambeau by the French outdoor alchemists Compagnie Carabosse. We shall be going along to witness this amazing spectacle this weekend (Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th May).
I am very fond of this park and looking forward to the St Ann's Well Gardens Spring Festival on Saturday 21st May.
'Brighton Festival has been at the forefront of this renaissance (‘of British Arts Festivals’)... An arts festival that makes connections with the real world' THE TIMES Fri 18 Feb 2011
Other festival events for kids include the Children's Parade, and for theatrical entertainment there is The Owl & the Pussycat and Draw me a Bird. I also spotted that on the seafront there's a FREE event The Iron Man which will be good to catch.
Then there's the Brighton Festival Fringe which is full of even more amazing Cabaret, Literature and Visual Art as well as more events for children
It makes me so proud and excited to be living in this city.
