Today we hand over to another guest blogger, this time it is about the Brighton Festival which runs from 4-26 May 2013. So here is a personal preview by Elizabeth Hughes...
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the bunting is flying and the streets of Brighton are alive with excitement and anticipation. Brighton Festival started on Saturday 4th May and there’s so much good stuff to see in the next three weeks…
At the city’s regal and most historic venue, Theatre Royal Brighton, there are two amazing and very different shows; Between 14 and 18 May a breathtaking, physical act from Australia – Casus will perform a mixture of traditional and contemporary circus techniques in their new show ‘Knee Deep’. The critics call it “awe inspiring” and it’s one of the must-see shows this year.

If you are bringing children to the city this May there is a delightful and inspiring dance-theatre show at the beautiful Old Market in Hove (one of my favourite arts venues!) on 21 and 22 May. Varmints is based on the award-winning book about creatures who love nature and defend one small plant against the encroaching, noisy city. It’s a poignant and thought-provoking story which adults and anyone aged eight or over will enjoy.
