Best Things to do this Weekend 19th-20th September
This weekend is certainly not short of ace things to do. We’re especially loving the costume games, how much more Brighton can it get! And for all those little (and big) Batman fans check out the real deal at Brighton museum. Enjoy!
Fiery Foods Festival – Back at Victoria Gardens for a 9th year and it’ll be even bigger and better with new exhibitors, live music, lots of competitions and of course the Infamous Chilli-Eating Contest.
The Dark Knight Rises’ Batsuit at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery – This September Brighton will be coming out to ‘dress up and play’ for The Costume Games. To celebrate, Brighton Museum will host Christian Bale’s Batsuit from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
The Costume Games – “Dress up and play” at the world’s first Costume Games! The Old Steine Pleasure Gardens will be turned into the “Costume Gardens” where people will be able to “get into character,” be creative and have fun. Oscar winning Lindy Hemming, Graham Churchyard and the team behind Christopher Nolan’s Batman films will join local costume charity Gladrags to help you create your costume, turning the whole city of Brighton into a veritable stage: watch out for the “flash mobs” who will be appearing around town as part of the Costume Carnival at the weekend.
Brighton Digital Festival – A celebration of digital culture that takes place across Brighton and Hove every September. 2015 marks the fifth consecutive year for the Festival so expect lots of amazing and collaborative events across the city and beyond with workshops, exhibitions, conferences, hackathons and more!
Family Funday Fundraiser – Support a great cause at the Family Funday Fundraiser in aid of Cystic Fibrosis at Hove Lagoon. Wakeboard and Skateboarding competition on the day with Amateur competitors who will be performing tricks and demo’s. Perfect for all ages with a raffle, Hook-A-Duck, food stalls and Live DJ’s.
Max Romeo – Max Romeo’s marathon career has had a huge reach and influenced a vast number of reggae and roots artists. With a back catalogue longer than the Great Wall of China, Romeo will be filling the evening with all of his iconic reggae and roots classics. The show itself will be a voyage through the history of Max’s career and Jamaican culture itself.
Seun Kuti & Egypt ’80 – Let’s be clear, outside the invention of time travel or the reincarnation of Seun’s father, Afrobeat originator, Fela, this is as brilliant a demonstration of African music you’ll see in Brighton. The biggest compliment we could possibly give Sean is that he is worthy of the status of leading his father’s band, with his preacher man, call and response vocals and virtuoso sax playing. Bring your dancing shoes.
