Alternative ideas for the 14th February....

While some of us here at VisitBrighton have been getting all loved up and excited about Valentine's Day, there are others who view February 14th as just another day so here are some alternative ideas for things to do which do not include the L word or hearts...

Escape the smooching couples and visit the Theatre Royal Brighton which celebrated it's 200th anniversary last year. This week you can see Legal Fictions, a double bill of 'The Dock Brief' and 'Edwin' by John Mortimer. Coming from the creator of Rumpole of the Bailey you are sure to enjoy a night of wit and wisdom, the plays star award-winning actor Edward Fox.

Alternatively you could pop down to the country's oldest cinema The Duke of York's, they have big comfy chairs, home made cakes and they have a license so you can take your drink in with you while you watch the film. On Thursday they will be showing 'The Diving Bell and the Butterfly' which tells the remarkable true story of Jean-Dominque Bauby the editor of French Elle magazine who awoke from a coma with locked-in syndrome, so he was mentally alert but physically paralysed. He could only communicate by blinking and managed to learn a blinking code for the whole alphabet. Oh la la!
