Yes 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.
The traditional curtain raiser for the Brighton Fringe Festival sees school children enjoy their own carnival, as the city closes its roads and lets them run wild. Well, not wild – the event is always well organised.Share on Facebook
There’s nothing more Brighton than sitting in a café, watching the world parade itself past. Thanks to its inclusive nature, this town is home to the widest and wildest variety of peoples and styles. If it’s ‘happenin’, it’s happening here.
So if you are looking to rest legs weary from shopping and watch the show, check out our guide to the top brew spots.
In a town of a thousand cafés, to make it into the top ten is no mean feat. To that end, this top ten is more like ten of the best – all worthy of a visit.Share on Facebook
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.
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.Share on Facebook
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.
