Brighton will welcome a unique new festival to the city in Spring 2016

The one day event will feature a programme of performances alongside visual artwork, literature and local food and drink. Created by two friends, collaborating with multiple local musicians, artists and producers, Little Way is inspired by Saint Therese of Lisieux.

Real Junk Food will be serving up Mexican Street food for dinner time including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options all from salvaged food.

Drinks will be sourced from Old Tree Brewery,which operates inside zero-waste restaurant Silo, as a botanical brewery. Little Way’s drinkable line-up will include quality ales, botanical cordials and soft drinks, including sea-buckthorn champagne, spiced plum cordial and nettle beer served on bars made from old church pews that used to occupy the venue floor.

little way festivalOne Church‘s regular schedule includes a homeless night shelter and meal service, a bustling pop-up cafe using only food waste, a barista apprenticeship for unemployed young people, holiday meals for low-income families, cooking sessions for children, office support for an off-site therapeutic farm and a Brighton farmers’ market and jobs academy.

Festival producers Philippe Nash and Harvey Herman said: “The basis of Little Way is to develop a music festival that is intentionally simple in form, and has the fostering of new connections and interactions as its focus.

Held at the tail end of winter, and entirely under one roof, the day is really an opportunity to gather together and deliver something of a shared home to everyone involved, rather than a ‘big name’ spectacle. We want to encourage a sense of a family which can grow and take new forms in the future
