Brighton Bank Holiday Bonanza

It may seem like it's only been a couple of weeks since we had a bank holiday weekend and that's because it was only a couple of weeks ago, but now another one is upon us, hoorah!

So if you've forgotten to plan anything then don't worry I have decided to help you out by giving you a round up of the top events happening this weekend:
  • This Bank Holiday weekend marks the end of Brighton Festival, Brighton Festival Fringe and Artists Open Houses. The Brighton Festival finale, the Big Splash, will take place for the sixth consecutive year at Brighton Marina. The Big Splash is a great family day out and this year they will be celebrating all the eccentricities of British life, so look out for Punch & Judy, Bobbies on the beat, cockney tourists, posh toffs and some classic Beatles music from the Sgt Pepper's band.
  • For all you fashionistas out there this weekend is also Brighton Fashion Weekend which will feature free fashion workshops and fashion installations across the city – helping you achieve high fashion and style on a low budget.
  • The Military Show 2009 is a military spectacular which is set to bring Hove Lawns to life this coming Bank Holiday and best of all it's completely free! Kicking off at 11.30 on Saturday 23rd May there will be some 40s swing and jive music. Later on in the day there will be the vocal group 'The Clover Sisters'; Max Miller impersonator John Ripley; some impressive military machines plus mouth watering 40s American themed food & drink.
  • Saturday is going to be a busy day in the city as there is another event happening – The St Ann's Well Gardens Spring Festival – from 11.00 – 19.00. The festival will include The Wellbeing Main stage with a great line-up of hot acts; kids arts and craft activities; quiz trail around the park; samba band; massages; burlesque workshop; market stalls and a yummy barbecue.
But if none of that tempts you then it looks like it will be sunny in Brighton so you could always just chill out on the beach :)
