It's that time of year again, folks. Where has the time gone? Next week is the start of Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe, and the city will be filled with all manner of artistic, theatrical, musical and other events for a month.
Brighton Fringe is the largest arts festival in England and one of the largest fringe festivals in the world. Brighton Festival is the more 'grown up' celebration of all the same things as the fringe: music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature and debate. The Festival's guest director this year is choreographer Hofesh Shechter, who follows in the footsteps of Michael Rosen, Vanessa Redgrave, Aung San Suu Kyi, Brian Eno and Anish Kapoor.
