Christmas is coming! It may be only the beginning of November, but it’s already time to get planning your xmas weekends in Brighton – and a closer look at the What’s on pages reveals the celebs are lining up to entertain you…
People always love Brighton in the summer – hardly surprising – but they often overlook the town as a destination to spend a Christmas weekend. And the week between Xmas and New Year is the perfect time to pick up a deal on a B&B in Brighton. Why, because while everyone else is snoozing off the food and putting up with the in-laws and screaming kids – the clever people get away from it all, get themselves off to the seafront and pick up Christmas & New Year hotel offers.
Attractions in Brighton are year-round and the entertainment venues have some of the best acts on over the Xmas hols.
Here’s a quick ‘what’s on’ this Xmas in Brighton at the Brighton Centre – and let’s play spot the international superstars…
The Saturdays, Bryan Adams, Status Quo, Jools Holland, Steven Merchant, Example
And in January ‘One Direction’ are in town – much teen screaming!Share on Facebook

Yes folks, hotels in Brighton are readying themselves for a massive surge in business thanks to this year’s pre-christmas line-up.
The list of big name acts set to play in the city’s venues is staggering – Peter Andre is also making a pre-Xmas appearance!
To finish off this month, we’ve a-ha on the 15th at the Brighton Centre (are they Finnish?); another folking great set from Seth Lakeman (17th Concord 2); jammed in on the same night as Calender Girls (Theatre Royal). We’ve mod goodfella, Paul Weller (23rd Brighton Centre) and if you’re not tempted by any of these, 80s pop-synth legends Heaven17 are here on the 30th.
Too many puns and plenty of top acts to choose from, it’s all too much like good fun! Book your hotels in Brighton early this year, because when you see who’s coming in December you’ll realise why it’s all going a little insania…Share on Facebook
Paul Weller’s on his way, and hotels in Brighton are getting ready for one of the biggest concerts of the year.
Now, while Weller’s still a Mod icon, there’s much more to this movement than its parker jackets and scooters.
To dig a little deeper we’ve caught up with Rob Bailey from the New Untouchables. Also working as DJ Dr Robert, Rob’s at the heart of the Mod movement.
Q. To the outsider, Mod is retro, so what’s happening on the Mod scene?
Mod is back to the future. Mod always comes back with each new generation adding a contemporary twist. It’s no coincidence. Great music, style and substance that is a unique British trait has not spread its appeal globally.
Q. Are there different sub-Mod groups by which people are now defining themselves?
Yes of course hard Mods (skinheads/Seudeheads) Dandy’s/Freaks/Swirleys the more swinging London/Psychedelic look, original Mods, Mod revivalists, Brit Poppers and Mockers and mix of Mod and Rocker. That’s what makes Mod unique, it has so much diversity.
Q. At the recent Brighton weekender a biker, on his chopper, rode by the collected scooters gunning his engine, all good-natured stuff?
Yea of course we got much more in common than most.
Q. Weller’s playing Brighton soon, is he still a Mod icon?
Of course without Paul Weller there would be no recognisable Mod scene as we know it today. That was my introduction to Mod like millions of others.
Q. On music, who is best representing the new Mod scene?
You mean new bands? I like Little Barrie, The Faithkeepers, The Shoestrung, Big Boss Man
Q. It’s easily forgotten how progressive the modernist/Mod movement was. What defines it now?
What defines Mod for me is attention to detail.
If your interested in finding out more check out the New Untouchables network and get involved – there’s events on all the time.
Here’s some pictures from the last outing to Brighton, proper Mod!
