Christmas in Brighton

Well we can no longer deny that Christmas is well and truly on its way proven by the fact that the Brighton Christmas lights will be switched on this evening. The fun kicks off at 5pm in East Street with the Heart FM DJs playing music and announcing competitions with lots of lovely prizes.

The lights will be switched on at 6pm with a special appearance from the stars of this year's Theatre Royal pantomime - Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Of course Santa and his helpers will also be there although watch out for Silas the Ghostwalker! And after all the festive fun the shops will be staying open late so that you can get cracking on your Christmas shopping.

But if you are still looking for Christmas present ideas or if you feel you deserve a treat yourself then you'll be delighted to hear that this weekend is MADE 09 - Brighton's Design & Craft Fair.

The fair will be on from Friday - Sunday at the Corn Exchange and tickets are just £5 per person with children under 14 getting in for free! From intricate glassware to vibrant knitted textiles, elegant ceramics to dazzling jewellery, there is something for everyone and every pocket as work is priced between £20 and £1500.

Calendar which lists an event for every day of December and do make sure you check each one as there are some fab competitions in there as well!
