Bank Holiday weekends in Brighton are what life is all about. This weekend the Rare crew will be heading down to the South coast to Brighton Town. Just an hour and a half train ride out of London and you are at the seaside. Brighton unlike most seaside resorts in the Uk has the funky feel of London filled with arts food and culture but with the added bonus of the sea. You can occupy yourself for hours shopping around the lanes, or if you prefer you can head to one of these festivals:
This year’s Foodies Festival starts in Brighton before taking off over the rest of the country. A fun day out with the chance to see Michelin chefs and top bakers. You can buy tasty treats from artisan producers, feast on street food from around the world, taste wine, champagne and craft beer and relax, enjoying the live music stage.
England’s largest Fringe festival kicks off this bank holiday weekend! Though Fringe doesn’t officially start until 6th May, throughout the bank holiday weekend there will be events across the city including Brighton’s Hidden Mysteries Tour, Bom-Banimals, Brighton’s Singing Barber Peter Joannou and more. Check out the website to catch these early starters.
The Artists Open Houses festival 2016 will take place in Brighton, Hove and surrounding areas over all five weekends of May, starting today. Over 60 new artists in Brighton, Hove, Ditchling, Rottingdean and the Ouse valley, throw open their homes and studios to bring you everything from sculpture and painting to jewellery, ceramics and textiles.
If you are enjoying yourself to much at the festivals to go art hopping, do not fear. Here at Rare we have some fabulous Brighton based artworks. Brighton Pavilion is one of our more classic images from B Town., but if you are looking for something a bit more fun and quirky check out Helter Skelter Vivid which is a fabulous image of the old fashioned Helter Skelter filled with iconic images of Brighton and the seaside, guaranteed to put a smile on anyones face.
