En guete Rutsch!

Let me be the first of the VisitBrighton team to greet you in 2008.

I nearly had to apologise to you again about the phone, but it is ok, it is all working now, you can ring us on 0906 7112255 (calls cost 50p per minute, standard rate)! I won’t bore you but this triggered a very complicated chain of events involving an unscheduled visit to the Brighton Town Hall, alarms, telecom modems, my manager’s desk and Mr Alan Price, telephone genius at Brighton & Hove City Council.

What else can be achieved in Brighton on this fine first day of the year of our Lord, 2008? When I wondered in from the Hanover direction at 9am this morning I met quite a few revellers staggering in the other direction. I do hope the lad in the red tights has found his way out from the underground car park entrance by the side of the Ha! Ha! bar – the poor thing looked more than slightly confused. Shop keepers and restaurateurs were tiding up outside their premises in the Lanes earlier. I managed to decipher a chappy from Ecuador and we have sent him on his way to Bath by coach. Karen has done the dusting, so it is quite save to come into the VIC to see us. She has new fan in the shape of a German boy, who is now not going to Hull today, as the trains were a bit chaotic.

And if you have made it out of bed this morning (congratulation!) you can do the following:
Visit the Royal Pavilion, Brighton Sea Life Centre or Brighton Pier
Go the Cinderella at the Theatre Royal
See Brighton & Hove Albion beat Bournemouth at the Withdean Stadium
Make the shop keeper’s and restaurateur’s day in the Lanes

Happy New Year from VisitBrighton!!
