Valentines Day in Brighton and a splash of seaside seduction…

Looking at spending Valentine’s Day in Brighton? It’s a pretty good move, as not only are there lots of special offers on accommodation, there are deals to be had on food, too.

And it’s a romantic place. Nothing better than spending the evening strolling along the seafront hand-in-hand – ok, we can think of something, but there’s always a good chance of that happening later anyway- you hope!

After a hotel room? Look out for Valentine’s Day hotel packages that offer sea views and discounts on two-night and three-night breaks, as it’s difficult to get anywhere for just one night – and let’s face it, it always looks dodgy rolling up at midnight trying to book in last minute to a B&B in Brighton for just one night.

Unpacking done, it’s time to get out into it all. And you needn’t venture far: Brighton pier takes on a special quality outside of the summer season so give it a wander. There’s fewer people, better views and more space to roam; jump on the ghost train together and you’ll soon have your partner cuddling up for comfort.

Key to a romantic evening is good food, and you’ll be overwhelmed with choice when it comes to fine dining on Valentine’s Day in Brighton.

From here, it’s often on to bars and clubs. But not always a late finish of the sort you’d usually have when you are single…

It’s also the night for pulling! If you are not partnered up or on a promise, you’re secretly out there looking for someone right – and if you can’t find them, sometimes it just has to be someone tonight

Book a little hotel in Brighton, get yourselves to the seaside and let love do the rest. It’s in the air, so they say. But it’s sea air, so bring a scarf in case your lover can’t keep you warm.

Music festival season has begun: The Great Escape

Hotels in Brighton have been packed out every weekend with families enjoying weekends in Brighton and the hours of summer sun. Well, now it’s the turn of the partygoers as music festival season has begun!

As summer festivals go, it still seems a little early for a full-blown music festival – not that the weather conditions or the time of year ever mattered in Brighton, which has been enjoying a pre-summer, summer.

And to kick things off, we’ve ‘The Great Escape’ this weekend (12-14 May). Billed as Europe’s leading festival for new music it promises a wild collection of tunesters (300+) playing at 30 venues across the city.

And it’s more than just a music festival; it’s a conference during which you can get to hear the thoughts and views of the leading movers and shakers from within the industry.

Names we spotted performing are Beardyman, DJ Shadow and John Cooper Clarke – look at the Great Escape gigs list for more details. And speaking at the conference, you’ll hear Wired Magazine’s Duncan Geere talking about the future of digital music and DJ Shadow reviewing his success in the biz.

So, from Thurs to Sunday expect to see plenty of music industry types sauntering in and out of hotels in Brighton. ‘Then after the show it’s the after party and after the party it’s the hotel lobby’ – sorry, could help it.

It’s going to be another weekend to remember, but remember to pack your sun cream and maybe even your swim shorts because if current form is anything to go by, the music festival and the regular beachfront party will merge into one. Bring it on!

Panto, Irving Berlin and Beethoven: weekend activities for all the family

Family fun guaranteed

Family fun guaranteed

So you’ve done everything you can around Brighton, exhausted the half term entertainment list and now have the kids in tow looking for some weekend activities: then get yourselves to Panto!

Running since Thursday, the Brighton Dome has had its roof lifted to cries of: “She’s behind you” and” Oh yes he is” as it’s hosting an excellent version of Dick Whittington.

If you’re not familiar with the plot (there’s a plot?) Dick Whittington left home with his cat to seek fame and fortune in London thinking that its streets would be paved with gold. He then ran a way with a captain of a ship to see foreign lands.

In the end, well I’ll not spoil the ending for you. Although if he were alive today he’d probably be in the running for Mayor of London…

The story, unlike most panto farces is backed up, a little bit, by fact: there was a Richard Whittington, but it’s disputed whether or not he had a cat.

Dick Whittington runs all over the coming weekend, till the curtain falls for the final time on Sunday 6th March.

Tonight, there’s Anton and Erin, featuring music from Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein and Cole Porter and a whole spectacular of show tunes. Staying in Brighton till tomorrow – for more cultured weekend activities in Brighton – there’s the London Philharmonic Orchestra banging out the Beethoven, Schubert, and Rachmaninov.

Hotels in Brighton love panto, but you’d better let us know if you’re bringing your cat!

Discounted hotel rooms for families, available here.

Reserve a room, then book your tickets direct with the Brighton Dome
