The children are taking over!

fringegreyscalethumbYes folks, for one day only, the  kids are taking over Brighton. Don’t worry, it’s just the Children’s Parade and it’s going to be lots of fun, especially for visitors to Brighton bringing their families and kids.

Brighton’s Parklife – Queen’s Park

If you think it’s fun to be beside the seaside, you should also try a bit of park life. With lots of Regency/Victorian era parks, Brighton has plenty of green spaces in which the kids can play.

Queen's Park

Queen's Park

The nearest and perhaps the dearest to Kemp town is Queen’s Park. Staying in the Ambassador Hotel, you could be forgiven for just looking south for your fun. But just ten minutes walk away is an oasis of calm, free from the shoppers, party goers, and beach dwellers.

Entry to the park is via the unremarkable Egremont Place . From here it widens and fills, with fairytale paths, lawns and low-hanging branches. First opened to the public in 1892, this park was formely privately owned and retains much of its gravitas to this day.

Brighton boffins say: “Sing to win!”

This weekend, while most of you will be doing your singing in Brighton’s Karaoke bars, boffins from Brighton are working on the song to beat them all.

According to researchers at the Sussex Innovation Centre, singing from the terraces could help England’s injury stricken team lift its performance. Well, I think we’ll have to wait and see.

With another good weekend of weather on its way, the city is ready for a welcome influx of tourists. Karaoke Kings and Queens are always welcome here!

So get out and about, check out the seafront, and belt out a tune or two.
