Well, we’ve been looking for alternatives to going out clubbing on New Year’s Eve in Brighton and we may have found something a little more hardcore than the dance floor: Swimming in Arundel Lido!
Now, while it’s not Brighton proper, it is only a short bus trip away and as one of the few remaining lidos in the country is worth a visit.
But swimming out doors on New Year’s Eve? Barking! So, if it’s all a little too hardcore, you could always come back next year – yes folks, it’s open on New Year’s Day as well!
New Year Hotel breaks in Brighton don’t have to be all-nighters, there’s always activities for families on hand. So take a trip to the only open-air Lido in West Sussex ( it has recently celebrated its 50th Birthday).
I’d love to promise you it had warmed up over those years, but it probably hasn’t! (Actually, the manager has assured would-be swimmers that the water temperature is up.) And there will be mulled wine and hot drinks to warm the cockles.
And it’s not free, either. But what is on New Year’s Eve in Brighton? And anyway it’s only £4 for adults, £2 for under-18s and free if you are under 5 or over 80.
You could always try nearer to home with the Saltdean Lido. You can take the bus there and enjoy the walk back along the under cliff walk to the Marina and back into town – perfect start to New Year.
And for the proper mental ones, you could meet up with the curious tribe of bearded creatures who swim everyday in the sea off Brighton. Beautiful people – little crazy – but beautiful!Share on Facebook
Country, Ska, Pop, Mod and all in one venue: it can only be the Brighton Ballroom.
Recently refurbished and lovingly re-launched, the Ballroom plays host to Brighton’s most eclectic mix of genres and cultural germinations.
One quick look at the play list reveals all:
30 Sept: Ska Toons, jazzy Ska classics and rock-steady versions of great songs in the old-skool 60’s style.
1st Oct: MISS HOPE SPRINGS presents BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS – Dance to Bacharach, Herb Albert and Tijuana Brass, the Carpenters Sergio Mendez Sylvester, DIvine and latin jazz of the 70’s and let your hair down to the latest handbag hits.
2nd Oct: Boogaloo Stu’s Popkraft – A good old-fashioned party with boogaloo stu, dollyrocket, sparklemotion, the size zero albino & darran duran, with things to make and do – plus pop music too.
4th Oct: Mercury Music Prize Nominees Villagers play the Brighton Ballroom
And from here on it gets more interesting: There’s a We Love Pop night, a night for Mods featuring ‘The Spitfires’ and ‘Departure From Normal’ and even something described as Electro Swing versus Speakeasy Jazz!
Sounds like our kind of night!
