Creative Differences @ The Hope and Ruin

Brighton’s creatives are all gathering on Saturday to show their work. This market shows that creativity comes in different forms, with record labels, illustrators, ceramicists and more. We are able to go along and support these different artists, while finding some treats for ourselves. As well as the variety of different stalls, there will be DJs and workshops throughout the day. There is a long list of exhibitors, so if you are creative yourself, you will not be short of inspiration!

Let’s Kill Disco, Queen Special @ CHALK

If you like to spend your Saturday nights painting the town red, then why not spend your night belting out the words to well known power ballads from the 80s? This is a chance to get cheesy and listen to the music which was so prominent to the era. Also, if you’re a fan of Queen, then you’re in luck. There will be a bombardment of Queen songs throughout the night. So, get your best Freddie Mercury high notes at the ready and play that air guitar, because you’re in for a great night. Head over to ‘CHALK’, for a night of absolute classics.

Sunday 8th December

Christmas Dachshund Pop Up Cafe @  Revolution

If you are a Dachshund lover, then you are in for a real treat! The last time this event was held in Brighton, it brought in over 140 sausage dogs. So, hopefully this year there will be just as many, if not more. This is a chance to celebrate these adorable little dogs in all their shapes and sizes as they wonder around the cafe. If you are an owner of a Dachshund then bring them along to enjoy a day of unlimited treats while meeting other dogs. There will also be competitions going on throughout the day, so you might even win something!

Weaving for Beginners @ The Hope and Ruin

This is a really great chance to get crafty on your Sunday. Get your tickets for a weaving workshop, which teaches you the basic skills you need to know to get started! It might be something you really enjoy, so it’s worth going to find out. Weaving is a really therapeutic activity, because it can be so calming, but you’ll also have the satisfaction of the lovely finished product afterwards. This is a perfect opportunity to socialise and relax as you take up a new hobby.

Christmas @ The Royal Pavilion

The Royal Pavilion has had a magical transformation, as it has been decorated especially for Christmas. There are glittering lights and trees with traditional decorations, as well as luxurious Georgian desserts on display in the Deckers’ room. There are also brilliant photo opportunities to pose in a replica of Queen Victoria’s sleigh, which is surrounded by presents. This is the perfect thing to do on a cold winter’s day, as you’ll feel a lot more festive after walking around the Pavilion. You could even go ice skating there too!
