Hetty Feather - storytelling & acting at its very best!

Last night our Conference Manager, Darren went to see Hetty Feather at the Theatre Royal Brighton. We asked him to write about it for the blog, his review is short and sweet - unlike the man himself! Only teasing, anyway here's what he thought of the show...

What a performance, what a show, Hetty Feather has everything! A stage that turns into a big top, wonderful characters, supreme acting, amazing musicians and a storyline that is genuinely moving. It takes something rather special to keep my 9 year old son captivated for over 2 hours but Hetty Feather did just that. Asked on the way home what he thought the best part of the show was, “all of it” was the reply’. 

Catch the Show while you can, it’s storytelling and acting at its very best’

Thanks Darren. Hetty Feather is on at the Theatre Royal Brighton until Sunday 2nd August.

Rendezvous Cafe is VisitBrighton's 500th partner!

VisitBrighton is a partner organisation, this means local businesses pay an annual fee to work with us and then this money goes directly into marketing the city and encouraging more visitors to the destination and our partner businesses. Therefore the more businesses working with us the more we can do for the city.

Last night at our Summer networking event we were thrilled to annouce that we are now working with 500 local businesses! We have a wide variety of partners including accommodation, restaurants, shops, activities, attractions, spas, language schools and many more.

Our 500th partner is Rendezvous Cafe & Gallery on Duke Street. The story behind the cafe is an example of what makes Brighton such a lovely place to live, visit and work in. Ivan Dong and Shawn Zhang visited Brighton one afternoon in 2012 and absolutely fell in love with the place. So they bravely decided to leave China and start up a business here! Their love for the city is reflected in the cafe as all the artwork is by local artists. Do pop in and have a look and tell them we sent you :)
The staff at Rendezvous celebrate being the 500th.
