I-deas for new things to do in Brighton this winter

If you haven’t noticed yet, Brighton’s got an eye. It’s not the most original design and hardly a new idea. But still, at night, with the pier behind, it’s a looker… and one of a few new things to do in Brighton this winter. And it’s not an eye, as in London Eye – but that’s because it’s a wheel…er?

And we’ve yet to see a good picture of it – I mean really good. So before every café in Brighton gets slapped with images of our new seafront attraction, let’s see if we can’t get a few of our own.

Only original shots please: lets have lots of documentary stuff, twisted angles, long-time exposures and demonstrations of the general creativity that we are known so well for.

Other very festive activities include the Royal Pavilion’s Christmas Ice Rink, the traditional Christmas Winter Market in Churchill Square, and the fabulous CINECITY – Brighton Film Festival that runs up until Dec 4th.

And don’t forget to get us your pictures of the i-whatever it’s called onto our Facebook page – we’ve also got deals on rooms over Xmas and New Year in Brighton, but they are fast disappearing…

Halfterm for kids and teens at Brighton Museum

Lots on for families this halfterm

Lots on for families this halfterm

Just a step or two from the Royal Pavilion is Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, and it’s got something on for families enjoying halfterm in Brighton: Currently, it’s running ‘Picturing Stories’ an exhibition of narrative paintings.

So, what exactly should you expect if you fancy taking the children along?

Well, the best way to look around the museum is to download a gallery trail, or pick one up on arrival: with this you’ll get to follow clues and readings to find your way around.

Kids get to look through a short piece of literature, before piecing together their answers. It’s a really easy and enjoyable way to get everyone engaging in art and reading.

For older children the museum is running and exhibition ‘Capturing Colour: Film, Invention and Wonder’. Again free, this brilliant show traces the history of colour as we used it to represent the world.

There’s everything, from early colour films to fairy-tale genies, and there’s material here that’s hardly ever been seen before. And there are home movies and even Hollywood films for them to gawp at.

Lots to explore...

And if after that you need a quick brew before you venture back out into Brighton, the museum serves up some of the best cream teas you’ll ever find – good enough reason to get along there in the first place…

Have a look here, for more information about halfterm family events at Brighton Museum.

Entry for both events is free and runs throughout the bank holiday week

The Pavilion: It’s time for a visit

Brighton Royal Pavilion

Brighton Royal Pavilion

You’d be surprised just how many people live in Brighton with their families and kids, and never visit the Pavilion. It took us five years to make the trip, and it was well worth it.

The Pavilion is one of the most iconic of Brighton landmarks; along with both piers, it is one of Brighton’s defining pieces of architecture.

If you’re worried it’s going to be a boring history lecture in a dusty old room, don’t be. I was enchanted on my first visit; it’s a fascinating place.
