First things first: Latest 7 has always been known for its lively local (and sometimes controversial) columnists, and now we’re on the look out for a new one. Are you a Brightonian with a fresh perspective on city life and a strong personal voice? Send a 450 word sample column to bella@thelatest.co.uk. On the subject of good talkers, Speech Debelle more than lived up to her name when we caught up with the south Londoner just before her recent Mercury Prize win. Read our interview with hip-hop’s boldest new female voice on p11. You’ll notice we’ve got a bit of an art glut on this week, inspired by the arrival of the ever popular Brighton Art Fair (turn to p12 where you’ll find some fantastically freaky felines). And one lucky winner can win an exclusive art print by rising snapper Louie Banks, courtesy of fantastic new Brighton fashion photography mag Gang Up (p5). We also have a special extended Food & Drink section, taking in relocated seafront restaurant The Arrogant Frog (p20). Is all this failing to excite you? You obviously need our Wave feature (p29), in which we ask local NLP bods and hypnotherapists for a tip each on how to improve your positivity – and receive all manner of suggestions from choirsinging and body-positioning, to imagining Mickey Mouse’s voice in your head. Still feeling jaded? You blatantly need to become an Urban Shepherd. Phil Mills has the lowdown on the introduction of sheep to the city, and the call for volunteer Little Bo Peeps, in his weekly local news round up (p6).

days of headlines with Phil Mills

Car Free Day was a peaceful hit, bin fury reaches fever pitch, and Brighton’s wannabe Little Bo Peeps are set to have a field day

W

e’ve gone from noisy roads to quiet streets in the last few days, and now we can look forward to the silence of the lambs. The noisy roads were caused by the highly successful White Air extreme sports festival, which drew the crowds to the seafront. But alongside the many compliments came a few moans about the £35 tickets. It was a case of Wow! and Ouch! The silence came with the Car Free Day, which reclaimed city roads for a while and made walking through the city more than pleasant. You could take your eyes off ground

level and the threatening traffic and move them upwards to admire the architecture – and for once escape those ugly city rubbish bins. Talking of which, it has been confirmed that complaints about

Brighton and Hove City Council leader Mary Mears joins the electric revolution

O

ne of the key priorities for me as Council Leader is to help transform Brighton and Hove into a low carbon city. It is, therefore, very exciting to report this week that we are going to be introducing electric car charging points on the city's streets – we’re the first council outside of London to do this. We will be installing four charging points over the coming weeks – two each in Bartholomews, central Brighton and Ditchling

poor bin collection service reached almost 10,000 in a year. To be fair, the guys on the whole do a great job but it’s when you look at your council tax bills that you shudder and wonder whether you are getting value for money. Local taxes, while on the subject, should be on the way down when one considers that city unemployment is higher than the national average and many people are finding it tough to make ends meet. Instead, we see the council spending 1.4 million on new puffin crossings and on signs telling people how to cross a road. Its purpose is all well and good, to make crossings safer, but is the timing right when many would prefer to see non essential expenditures cut and real tax breaks for residents and businesses? And finally, about those sheep. The city council has announced plans to bring more sheep onto council land so it can do away with lawn mowers and bring wildlife and wild flowers back to our Downland and city green spaces. More volunteer urban shepherds will be recruited to tend the animals, and anyone interested should visit brightonhove.gov.uk/lookerers. Sheep schemes have already been operating in the Wild Park at Moulsecoomb, on Bevendean Down, and in Sheepcote Valley, East Brighton. Council chiefs are looking at new schemes on Whitehawk Hill, Hollingbury Park and Waterhall. The council says that for local communities, the sheep farming will bring a real “feel good” factor. The sheep, it seems, are getting closer to the city centre and one wonders how long it will be before our woolly friends are grazing on the lawns around the Royal Pavilion. Those who clamour for the countryside would have something to bleat about.



Disagree with council spending? Fancy your own shepherding skills? comment@thelatest.co.uk

Road, near the Level – with more following by the end of the year. It seems clear to me that over the next 20 years or so, a shift to electric vehicles (alongside a move away from our reliance on fossil fuel energy generation) offers the most realistic prospect for delivering low carbon motoring. Rising oil prices and falling demand for gas guzzlers are accelerating a push by car-makers into researching and developing next-generation electric and hybrid petrol-electric vehicles. As a Council, we must be ahead of the game, facilitating this shift by providing convenient locations for people to power up their vehicles. In addition, I want us to lead by example in terms of our own Council vehicles. We currently have a hybrid Prius as the official mayoral car

latest inbox comment@thelatest.co.uk In response to your online article ‘Are there ghosts in Preston Manor?’, I was there a week ago with a group of students and it seems to be the perfect place for ghosts.

Never mind road rage [L7 News, 442], I had bus rage when my boyfriend and I decided to take a cheap trip to Devil’s Dyke on Saturday and had to pay £5 each bus fare for what can’t have been more than a ten minute journey. £10 to go and walk about on the downs and fly a kite for a few hours!

and we use two electricpowered vehicles to collect recycling in narrow streets in the city centre. I am also looking at our wider vehicle fleet to see whether we can move, at least partially, to electric or hybrid models. Pic: Frank Hebbert I think that this is a really exciting development and befits our reputation as an innovative and dynamic City. Boris Johnson has led the way in London by establishing an Electric Vehicle Partnership to try to bring about a dramatic increase in electric car ownership and use in the capital. There is no reason why we shouldn’t work towards a similar revolution here in Brighton and Hove.

Celebcity with Jo Brooks Oliver Heath pops in for a coffee, Eternal singer joins BIMM, plus Chris Eubank’s £30,000 dental bill

Oliver’s dream beans

B

righton based eco-designer Oliver Heath has landed a rather hot new job. Oliver is probably best known for his TV work, making countless appearances on BBC1’s Changing Rooms, and is the host of ITV1’s current series, Dream Homes, where he travels the world to find the very best designed homes. Now father of two Oliver, alongside Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, is fronting a new campaign for Kenco coffee. Kenco has ditched its famous “coffee bean shake” (who could forget Gareth Hunt shaking the beans?!) and has enlisted the help of Eco-expert Oliver and Amanda (who will of course provide the glamour) as Kenco introduce their new “greener” packaging. The pair will encourage the British public to go on a “packaging diet” by introducing us coffee lovers to the new, resealable packs. The Eco refill packs, I’m told, use 81% less energy in their manufacture than equivalent glass jars that are on the market at the moment. They aim to get the public to help divert 26,000 tonnes of packaging waste from landfill. Oliver popped in the office last week – yes, for a coffee – and told us how he will travel across the country to encourage people to explore a greener lifestyle.

Young vocalists’ hopes spring Eternal Brighton Music College – or BIMM as it is more widely known – has signed up three new celebrity singers to teach at the school. Ex-Eternal star Kelly Bryan, who had fifteen top 20 singles in the ‘90’s, will be joined by Sarah Jay Harley, who headlined Glastonbury as part of the super-group Massive Attack and performed on the soundtrack to The Matrix. Also coming on board is Jo Thompson, one of the UK 's leading singing and voice coaches with over 20 years' experience in the business. Her credits as a singing coach include the hit film Little Voice, starring Jane Horrocks, and the TV series Popstars The Rivals. And she’s worked with everyone from Craig David and Sophie Ellis Bextor to Steps, Liberty X and Five.

Chris says so long to his lisp Brighton celeb Chris Eubank has forked out £30,000 on a new set of teeth. The ex-boxing champion decided to invest in the brand new set to cure his trademark lisp. Chris, 43, has been backwards and forwards to Ireland where Dr Barry Buckley, a dentist who has a practice in County Kildare, fitted Chris up with his new pearly whites. I’m told the process was quite labour intensive and took a whopping three months to complete with still one more visit to go, with procedures including the closing of a gap at the front of Chris’ existing teeth. Having seen the new set in the flesh, I can report that they are truly a sight to behold and, yes, the lisp seems to have gone. It has, though, been replaced by a sexy little whistle!

SPOTTED! I popped along to the White Air Festival on Saturday afterno on and spotted,amongst the skater and BMX boys, none other than ex-T hin Lizzy member Gary Moore. Gary was with his gorgeous girlfriend watchin g another guitar legend – ex-Smith Joh nny Marr – play with The Cribs on the main stage.

more facts you didn’t know about fantabulous hove

Blatchington Mill did not, despite local lore, derive its name from the windmill that once stood there. It was in fact named in honour of Sir Blatchington Mill (cousin of John Stuart), who introduced STDs to Hove. “Hove” is also the name of a board game designed by the same duo who invented “Kensington,” the now largely forgotten game that was widely tipped to rival Chess in popularity. “Hove” involved seventeen counters, an 89 sided die, a board pattern abstracted from the town’s grid system, and certain death for both players.

Singer/songwriter and Eurovision runner-up, Lynsey de Paul, now lives in a shed with collaborator Mike Moran at the North Nevill allotments that, touchingly, they have christened “Rock Bottom”. Lynsey and Mike’s shed

A verb, meaning to give incentive. "This bill will help incentivize everybody to solve that part of the problem" (Richard A Gephardt). WHAT WE USED TO SAY: Spur, urge or encourage

Arians at this time should be wary of people in dark glasses, small dogs, effervescent vitamin drinks, tinned custard and lard. Do something wild this weekend: shave your head.

Cancerians should be wary of people wielding sharp or blunt instruments, in fact, avoid string instruments and woodwind too. Do something bold: shave your eyebrows.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

Librans at this time should be wary of seeming too smarty pants. I know, it’s not going to be easy, you all love to be right, but this week why not try being wrong just for a change.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

Taureans at this time should be wary of nuns, Elastoplast, soap, soap operas, operas and operations. Do something wild this weekend:propose marriage to a stranger. Geminis at this time should be wary of horologists, horror stories and horoscopes. I know that may seem strange but right now Gemini I am your worst enemy. Grrrrrrrrrr.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

Leos at this time should be wary of fleas. These small pests are particularly attracted to Leos and the ensuing bits can be very painful. This weekend burn all your soft furnishings. Virgos at this time should be wary of all forms of intimate encounters. So no change there, eh, Virgo, simply carry on as usual. This weekend: book in for a Brazilian.

Scorpios at this time should be wary of becoming involved in any nefarious activity. Your natural ability to appear guilty could be your downfall this week, so stay home. For Sagis, any form of warning is immaterial. Keep quiet, keep calm, keep up, keep still, keep right on till the end of the road, and above all keep dry, you know what I mean.

Capricorns at this time should be wary of Afro Carribean restaurants. You may well be being cosmopolitan but this is no time to be currying favour with people who curry goat. Aquarians at this time should be wary of almost everything and everyone. The world as Aquarius envy big time right now so try keeping it under your hat just for a week. Pisceans at this time should be wary of red meat. Try the all fish diet – cod, huss, plaice, sole, haddock. The very brave should ask Roy at Bardsley’s to show you his skate knobs.

L7 INTERVIEW 11

FIGHTING TALK

Mercury Prize-winner Speech Debelle chats to Bella Todd about choking herself up on stage, the problem with having a Scorpio for a dad, and being a black woman whose music ‘isn’t black enough’

“I

n south London we have a food shop called Morley’s,” says Speech Debelle. “You can get, like, two pieces of chicken and chips for £1.99. Most hip-hop is Morley’s. My hip-hop is like if you go to – what’s that guy? Heston Blumenthal? Yeh, my hip-hop is what you get if you go to The Fat Duck and get a taster menu. And that’s what I’m gonna do if I win the Mercury!” Judging by our calculations, the 26-year-old rapper, otherwise known as Corynne Elliot, must be elbow deep in green tea mousse, quail jelly and liquorice-poached salmon right now. On 8 September she really did scoop the Mercury Prize, becoming both the first black artist to win in six years, the first woman to win in seven, and the first hip-hop artist to win since, well, ever. Currently finding its way into record collections which a gong-less south London rapper could never hope to reach, Speech Therapy is an album full of unexpected textures – brushed drums, jazzy acoustic guitar, soaring violins and spongey double bass. But it’s also an oddly old-fashioned affair for a hip-hop debut – more Arrested Development than Jay Z. “I couldn’t stick a song like ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’ over a Dr Dre loop or a hip-hop sample,” says Speech. She’s speaking to us during a rowdy night out with her mates in Clapham Common, just a few days before her Mercury win, and you can just sense her excitement over the background buzz. “Emotive words need emotive music – and the words I’m writing’s like tears – that’s what I’m doing, I’m crying in these words. So I think of the instruments that would make you cry too.” When Speech was 19, she got the words ‘pain is love’ tattooed on her wrist. Did it hurt? Damn right it hurt, it hurt like hell. But that was kind of the point. Much of her album tells of the empty bellies, druggy

heads and encounters with wannabe Tony Montanas she experienced during a sojourn on the streets: she spent the years from 19 to 23 living in hostels and skirting the law, a time which now feels so unreal to her that “performing those songs is like putting in a DVD.” But ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’ is the lump-in-throat peak of her set, dealing as it does – with all the courageous intimacy of her heroine Tracy Chapman – with her love-hate feelings for her largely absent father. She’s not sure whether or not he’s heard it.

“‘Urban’ has no real meaning. It’s a term created for black music to make it easier for white people to say” “My dad is a Scorpio,” she says by way of an explanation. "He’s a player. He’s a good lookin’ man – has everything about him that says ‘I’m way too smooth to care’. “That song and the title track take a lot to perform and they always make me end up on a serious comedown like I’ve been doing coke for five days. Because I’m saying things on those tracks that I’m only realising the truth of right now.” Writing with your heart so firmly in your mouth that you choke yourself up on stage might seem like the epitome of keeping it real. But when you’re a black artist, Speech has found, there seem to be other criteria. “I think

some people don’t think my music is black enough,” she says. “Like MTV Base, they wouldn’t play my song ‘Better Days’. That station is selling blackness: the attitude, the clothes, the walk, the talk, and clearly I’m not black enough for them. “But then other times in the music industry it’s like you’ve got to tone it down. Like Sugababes: you got one black one, one asian one, one white one. ‘Urban’ has no real meaning, seriously. It’s a term created for black music to make it easier for white people to say.” But Speech hasn't fought her way from Morley'sflecked pavements to the Mercury podium just to pander to somebody else's rules. So next album it'll be out with the violin and in with the orchestra. "I'm gonna take it back to Ray Charles, like I was on Motown Records in the 1960s," she says. "People got bills to pay right now, it’s a recession, they ain’t got money to waste on bulls**t: I'm going to give them lushness, not cheap samples”. As for the other kind of bulls**t, Speech, as you've probably gathered, has no problem fronting up. “I remember reading about that thing, ‘fight or flight’," she says. "It’s something chemical that happens within us to do with our adrenaline – know what I’m saying? Sometimes it makes us freeze and stand still when something happens. Sometimes it makes us able to lift up a car and things like that. Right now I feel like I could lift up a car." Speech Debelle plays Brighton Coalition, Kings Road Arches, Brighton on 8 October. drinkinbrighton.co.uk /brightoncoalition

GALLERIES SPECIAL 13 Saffron director Simon Honey has found that, increasingly, collectors from outside of the local area are visiting the gallery having first explored the website: “More and more, collectors find a particular piece on our site and then travel to the gallery to see it in the flesh. There are no surprises as we publish images and all prices and dimensions on our website, but nothing can beat seeing a piece in person to appreciate its texture, tone and depth.”

Battle spoils Saffron Art Gallery takes a threedimensional approach to artwork The Saffron Art Gallery in Battle continues to attract the attention of both art collectors and the South East’s top artists. It was featured here just a few weeks ago, but attention is turned to them once again as they prepare for the Brighton Art Fair. The renowned Celia Allen, a member of the Rye Society of Artists (RSA), has recently been added to Saffron’s stable of artists, and now, Saffron moves further into the field of ceramics and sculpture to broaden their offering and further diversify into 3D. The introduction of Anna Keiller’s (also an RSA member) torsos in 2008, and later expansion of her range, has proven extremely successful, and Saffron plans to build on this for the future. Saffron’s full collection can be viewed either in person or via the internet as they feature their complete catalogue of works on their website and house more artwork in their recently extended gallery.

Battle is less than an hour’s journey from Brighton, but city residents will also have the chance to see six of Saffron’s artists at this year’s Brighton Art Fair. Jane Skinner, Alison Trask, Cathryn Kemp and Brighton artists Luella Martin, Diane Rogers and Chrissy Guest will all man the Saffron Gallery stand at various times throughout the fair. All are accomplished, successful artists, who have exhibited widely throughout the UK and, in some cases, Europe. Each present a snapshot of the diverse selection of contemporary artwork available at Saffron Gallery. Visit Saffron on Stand 26 of the Brighton Art Fair, Corn Exchange, Church Street, Brighton on 1–4 October; Saffron Art Gallery, 59-60 High Street, Battle, TN33 0EN. 01424 772 130/saffrongallery.co.uk

TOP OF THE POTS The Good Food Guide 2010 recognises Brighton’s best, says Andrew Kay

T

ake a look at a range of food guides over the last ten years and you could be forgiven for thinking that almost all operate with a map that excludes Brighton and much of Sussex. For some reason they simply did not see the amazing advances that have been made here by restaurants and food producers alike. To be fair, one or two places have won some well earned accolades, but it has never seemed to be a full picture of the food offered in the city. The new 2010 edition of The Good Food Guide certainly re-dresses that with no fewer than 11 Brighton and Hove restaurants listed, and amongst those, some of my favourites. Drakes has been a foodie destination from day one, but since chef Andrew MacKenzie took over as head chef under their own brand, things have gone from strength to strength, and the guide recognises that achievement by rewarding them the highest scores in town. Due South were pioneers of the whole local produce movement in restaurant terms, way before every purveyor of food thought of adding it to their claim. Their inclusion is a well earned accolade, and they continue to grow in stature. I certainly expect to see more from them year on year. The Forager in Hove does what it says on the tin, and forages. Not for everything but for a lot of what they include on their exciting seasonal and local menu. From the outside it may seem like a pub but the food on the plate says excellence and innovation. Hotel du Vin simply delivers in terms of excellence. Bistro food, regional produce and an enviable wine list makes this one of the city’s most popular places to dine in elegance. There are seven more, and if the trend is set, then next year I expect to see 14 and perhaps a few of those absent Michelin stars. I for one think there is cooking in Sussex that certainly deserves higher recognition, and thanks go to ‘Which?’ for setting things straight.

Southern comforts Award-winning restaurant Due South keeps it local with ethically-sourced delicacies Michael Bremner, head chef of Brighton’s beachfront restaurant, Due South, is passionately committed to creating sophisticated food with uncompromised integrity. The restaurant only uses seafood from sustainable sources, and insists on wild, organic and free-range ingredients from local artisan producers. Due South has been awarded a number of accolades, including ‘Best Seaside Restaurant’ in Britain by The Observer Food Monthly; a prestigious AA Rosette, and the Sussex Sustainable Business Award 2007/2008. The popular restaurant has grown to include inhouse weddings and civil partnerships, as well as an award-winning outside catering, events and festivals team. They are open daily for lunch and dinner (12–3.15pm and 6–9.45pm). Due South, 139 Kings Road Arches, Brighton, BN1 2FN. 01273 821 218/ duesouth.co.uk

Hunter-gatherers The search for good food is over as The Foragers deliver a mouth-watering menu

A

s finalists for both the “Best eating experience” at the Sussex Food & Drinks Awards for the second year running, and “The best new kids on the block award 2008” at the Brighton & Hove Business Awards, The Foragers are making quite a name for themselves as Hove’s favourite gastro pub. Now in it’s third successful year, this relaxed and welcoming pub is run by coowners Rebecca Misich and Paul Hutchison, whose hard work has turned this once neglected establishment into one of Hove’s leading eateries. They met while working at The Saint in Kemp Town, and have an impressive CV between them. Rebecca was sous chef at

Blanch House and Due South; Paul was general manager at Koba and the manager of London’s famous Groucho Club. The deliciously varied menu changes regularly to reflect the seasons, with dishes to suit all tastes. These include pan-fried line caught sea bass fillet with saffron fondant potatoes, sorrel butter, and marsh samphire; Sussex ribeye steak, goose fat potatoes, with Sussex blue butter; plum and melilot steamed pudding with plum syrup and ice cream. The organic Sunday roast also proves an ever popular choice. Ingredients are locally foraged wherever possible, uncovering delights such as wild chervil, wood sorrel, radish leaves, sea beet and wild garlic. All of their meat is freerange and organic, and reared on one local farm, while the seafood is sustainably caught off the South Coast. Cheeses and dairy produce are all locally made, and their vegetables are organic or locally sourced. The Foragers are now taking bookings for Christmas, with group bookings/parties welcome. To make a reservation/Christmas booking enquiry, or for information about forthcoming events call 01273 733134 or email theforager@yahoo.co.uk. The Foragers 3 Stirling Place, Hove.

Drakes’ fortune The Restaurant At Drakes receives highest score in Brighton by The Good Food Guide

T

he highly acclaimed boutique hotel, Drakes Of Brighton, has received yet further recognition for their quality and high standards, but on this occasion for their acclaimed The Restaurant At Drakes. In the recently published The Good Food Guide 2010, Drakes’ fine-dining restaurant scored an impressive 6 out of 10 – the highest rating of all restaurants in Brighton. This significant achievement is depicted by the guide as “exemplary cooking skills, innovative ideas, impeccable ingredients and an element of excitement.” Through the evident skill, flair and imagination of head chef Andrew MacKenzie, who has been at the helm of the kitchen since Drakes opened it’s doors four years ago, the restaurant has also been awarded two AA Rosettes in April of this year. General manager, Richard Hayes commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have Andrew’s accomplishments recognised so soon after the management change at the restaurant which occurred less than a year ago. Through his dedication to perfection and impeccable technique, we are proud to provide the finest dining experience to our loyal, local customers and guests, and we will continue to work towards attaining further accolades in the future.”

The Restaurant At Drakes provides superb modern European cuisine prepared with the highest quality seasonal ingredients. Regularly changing menus include a gourmet five-course chef’s taster menu, three-course dinner menu and weekend lunch menu.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK 19

Food & Drink Andrew Kay reveals the shortlist for the Sussex Food & Drink Awards’ Sussex Farmer of the Year

Stars of the soil Lyn and Jenny Jenner, Nut Knowle Farm, Horam near Heathfield A former silversmith, Lyn took up farming 30 years ago. He and his wife look after 350 milking goats and a further 200 young goats. They have a huge affection for their animals, keenly advocating the health benefits of goats’ milk, as well as making around 12 kinds of goat cheese in their own dairy. They sell most of their cheese at farmers’ markets across the South of England, attending around 100 markets every single month, where they share recipe ideas with their customers and enjoy receiving direct feedback which they use to perfect their delicious cheeses.

Simon Bishop, Netherfield Place, Battle Head of Centre at Netherfield Place, part of Plumpton College, Simon commercially farms around 600 acres, including a mix of pigs, Sussex Beef cattle, sheep and arable, as well as providing training on the farm for around 150 young people and 50 disabled adults every week. The farm acts as a ‘sustainable food and farming classroom,’ and Simon is dedicated to stress-free animal husbandry, which means that the animals are organic; naturally weaned, born and reared on the farm. They are also butchered and sold from the butcher’s shop on site. Simon loves farming and enjoys seeing young people getting enthused and learning on the farm and says that everything they do at Netherfield Place has a useful purpose.

Stuart Beare, Tulleys Farm, Turners Hill, Crawley Tulleys Farm is best known amongst families in Sussex for their range of children’s farm-related entertainment, which draw large numbers of people to the farm. They run a pick-your-own and also sell their raspberries and strawberries in their farm shop. They grow a maize crop which gets harvested, but while standing, is used as a ‘maize maze’ for children to enjoy. Their large and attractively laid out farm shop and tea rooms include a wide range of British food with a major emphasis on Sussex produce, and Stuart and his family can be seen at events such as the South of England Show, promoting the message ‘eat local’.

Michael and Cathy Fordham, Bradfords Farm, Little Horsted near Uckfield The Fordhams manage a commercial farm of around 700 acres, including cereals and beef cattle. Michael is the regional board chairman of the National Farmers Union (NFU) and takes every opportunity to promote Sussex produce. He has an open farm policy and encourages people – from school children to the local Women’s Institute – to visit the farm. Cathy also goes to schools and educates students about sustainability and food. They have a farm shop on the farm selling their own meat and other local produce, and are extremely passionate about local food.

Shon and Simon Sprackling, Rother Valley Organics, Rogate Shon and his brother Simon manage a commercial farm of over 4000 acres, with a large butcher’s selling meat directly to customers, through farmers markets and to local shops. Shon gives talks to various organisations about local produce and the story behind Rother Valley Organics, which is renowned for its excellent animal welfare and good husbandry. He works with other local producers putting meat into their products, including the local brewery for beef and ale pies. Their butchering and cold store is the largest in the area and many other local producers use it to get their meat to market.

Helen and Rod Marsh, Middle Farm, Firle near Lewes Helen and Rod run a busy commercial farm alongside an equally successful shop, cider press, family entertainment and public events programme. They hold a farmers market each month with stallholders selling their local produce, they sell milk from their dairy herd in their farm shop, alongside other tasty local food and they encourage people to bring in their own home-grown apples for pressing. Their attractions are all farmrelated and help education and inform the public about local farming. Vote now at sussexfoodawards.com

The joint is jumping Never one for standing still, The Arrogant Frog’s Rosario Guarneri is taking the restaurant on to the next level

A

nyone who has ever met Rosario Guarneri will know that his passion for food and for service is ‘formidable’. His career in catering is long and varied: he has cooked and managed a wide range of eating establishments and along the way gathered a reputation for fine food and excellence of service. Earlier this year he seized an opportunity to move his successful restaurant, The Arrogant Frog, from Hove to a prime Brighton seafront location. It was a bold move but one that proved massively successful this summer, attracting both locals and tourists alike with its sensibly priced brasserie style menu, relaxed atmosphere and great service. It also attracted many of his long standing regular clientele and, although they loved the new venue and great prices, they did hanker after the signature classic French cuisine that has always been at the heart of The Arrogant Frog. ‘‘The move to Kings Road has given us the opportunity to become a far more commercially successful restaurant, and with that success I am now able to reintroduce those dishes that my regular customers have come to love,” says Rosario. “The Brasserie will continue to offer the very successful new menu throughout the day but in the evening we will be adding a blackboard menu of seasonal classic French cuisine, some of it traditional and

some of it reflecting new movements in the world of cooking. With this we will be able to cater for all tastes and for all pockets. I have always believed in giving customers what they want and that is where we are right now. ‘‘I am utterly convinced that here in Brighton and Hove and across the county we have

restaurants and chefs that are cooking at a standard that would challenge many of the top rated chefs in the UK. The recently published Good Food Guide is evidence of that. Brighton is at the heart of all that and I am full of praise for the great chefs at restaurants like Seven Dials,

The chef, the manager and a list of references that reads like a who’s who of fine dining

N

ew restaurant manager Bart Kosiski joins the Arrogant Frog team from London. “I first discovered my passion for catering around eight years ago. In that period I became a big fan of Mr Gordon Ramsay. I was lucky enough to be able to spend almost three years working for him in the Michelin-starred restaurant Maze, after only six months of it being open, and also at The Savoy Grill under Marcus Wearing. “I also had a short period working for Mr Albert Roux in Sofitel St James. Around two years ago I got my first general restaurant manager position in the boutique, four and a half star hotel, Mandeville, in the heart of Marylebone. After one year there I received a first rosette star and Top Table award for outstanding service. My future is

most definitely in catering and my dream is to one day open my own restaurant and receive a Michelin star.” Chef Adam Felipe Tapia has been working for Peter Woods, who had previous experience with Pierre Koffman at the famous La Tante Claire as a sous chef and in the same role at The Belvedere. ‘‘In my time with Peter I learnt a lot about maximising flavour, using seasonal produce and also a great deal about training staff members and motivating them to get the best from them. ‘‘Before that I was with chef Raymond Patterson who has been a great mentor to me, helping me to discover what I like to put on a plate in terms of flavour and presentation. I learnt to become very strong in such a fast-paced kitchen.

‘‘In my time working for Anton Edelmann at Allium, I learnt about balancing flavours; not overpowering ingredients, and tasting absolutely everything. I also learnt the importance of staying cool under pressure and working in a very positive frame of mind.’’

Tread lightly Zara Baker finds eco-friendly footwear doesn’t mean a compromise on fashion

W

hat do women want? Far too many things to list here, that’s for sure, but for all the Carrie Bradshaws out there, the latest fashionable shoes are probably near the top of the list. Meanwhile, eco-chicks want environmentally friendly footwear that looks good, too, and we would all like something that is ultra comfy – just for once. It may be an ambitious wish list, and extremely rare to find all three in one, but many retailers are keeping a close eye on fashion, while remaining on the good side of Mother Nature. Healthwise, ill-fitting shoes can be bad news for the feet – but women have always risked it in the name of fashion. The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists found that 37 per cent of women bought shoes that didn’t fit them during the summer sales simply because they ‘looked good’. With the compromise we make for fashion (blisters and bunions being only two common problems), it’s time to treat your feet to something better. Eco Sneaks are 100 per cent sustainable, manufactured using silk (natural protein fibre), organic cotton, recycled polyethylene terephthalate laces and recycled car tyres for the outer soles. Oh, and they come in a recycled box, too. The new season styles for women are bright, funky and may just convert some Converse devotees. Love-eco.co.uk is a pioneer in the eco-chic world of fashion. The Po-Zu Buto shoe is made for indoors, but we equally love wearing them outside, teamed with leggings and an oversized jumper. The boots are 99 per cent biodegradable, using natural materials free from harsh chemicals. The footmattress filler is 60 per cent coconut husk, and 40 per cent natural latex,

while the sole is 100 per cent latex. The Po-Zu slippers/boots even come in a biodegradable coconut box to grow your own seeds in! Vivo Barefoot take the concept that healthwise, we benefit from being barefoot (after all, it’s what nature intended), and provide footwear to recreate this. After all, negotiating the city streets barefooted is never going to work. Instead, their shoes have an ultra thin puncture-resistant sole, and are soft and flexible so our feet move in the way they would if we have nothing on them at all. The inner sole is shaped to encorage a natural, fluid motion with each step (think ball to heel to toe) and actively realigns your natural posture and strengthen the muscles in your feet. Every nerve ending in the body is stimulated, enhancing the individual’s sensory perception. All this from a shoe? What’s more, the range is extensive and stylish, available for both men and women. For those who love the latest shoe trends but don’t want to sacrifice comfort, swaptopshoes.com is a new website launching in October to offer different shoe uppers to fit one sole. Killer high heels can be worn with handmade padded leather soles for comfort – this already sounds too good to be true. Mark 20 October in the diary as this is when the site goes live. Care for your feet and the environment in one go: now that’s an easy habit to slip your feet into.

WHAT IS Ayurvedic Yoga massage? Emotional baggage? Dominique Blanch talks to Simon Griggs about lightening the load

“A

ccording to Ayurveda,” says Kusum Modak, the reclusive Indian founder of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, “zero stress in the body is the healthiest body.” What does it mean, zero stress? “It means you that you take a little care with your diet, your exercises, drink lots of water, try to be happy, laugh quite a lot, and the most important thing is, be aware of your breathing.” Simon Griggs is tired of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage being one of the best kept health secret in Brighton, and is on a mission to spread the word about the treatment’s benefits. “It’s unique. There’s nothing quite like it. It changed my life,” he enthuses. So, one summer’s evening, Simon led me up a narrow staircase at Yoga Haven with a warm smile, and showed me into a small room with silver wallpaper and organza curtains at one end. A futon-style mattress lay on the floor in the centre of the room, flanked by small brass pots – one containing sesame oil, and the other, calamus powder. “It’s very good for the blood circulation. It brings the toxins out from the body and stimulates your mind,” explained Simon.

I’ve experienced a range of massage styles, but this was entirely a new experience for me. Rather than lying comatose and semi-conscious while the practitioner works on you, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage requires the client to participate, to be aware of their body, and to take responsibility for themselves. “I take all my cues from the client’s breathing,” says Simon, “and it really is a two-way process between the client and myself. Sometimes, if there is a lot of tension to deal with, it can be hard work.” A treatment will typically take you through about ten to fifteen poses and stretches, many of them inspired by yoga, which work towards facilitating an emotional as well as physical release. To me, the stretches felt delicious, and, placing my trust in Simon, I was able to feel the stresses and tensions literally begin to fall away. “With time,” says Simon, “you feel emotionally lighter, and more able to deal with the challenges of life.” At the end of the session, I felt about seven feet tall, serene and composed, although, says Simon, others have been knocked sideways as old tensions and issues are brought forth by the body and worked through. Even if you have a specific problem with your knee or your back, for example, the treatment works with the whole body, never just on one area. Simon, a down to earth man whose passion for his work is tempered by his gentle English nature, came across Ayurvedic Yoga Massage while studying yoga and Ayurvedic medicine in India. The inspiration he feels is evident in his face as he talks. “Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is intense,” he says. “It’s just so well researched and designed, and I want to help preserve, continue and teach the work that Kusum has begun, and make sure she gets the credit for it. She has no website, no telephone... she is so involved in what she does that she has no interest in marketing and publicity.” And then, in a whirlwind of inspiration, Simon is off again, working to bring health and happiness to his next client.

Bent Henriksen finds that age is no barrier thanks to Coenzyme Q10

H

e may be 71-years-old, but age is no barrier for Bent Henriksen. The company director recently completed the National Three Peaks Challenge – a mountain-endurance challenge where participants attempt to climb the highest peaks in England (Scafell Pike), Wales (Snowdon), and Scotland (Ben Nevis). Bent puts his impressive energy levels down to his healthy lifestyle and the high-quality nutritional supplements he has been taking for years. “Coenzyme Q10 is a necessity for this kind of physical challenge,” he says. “It's a vitamin-like substance, which basically acts like a spark plug for energising every cell in your body. I take two 100mg capsules of BioQuinone Q10 every day.” The National Three Peaks Challenge has no official rules or time restrictions, but many participants try and complete it within 24 hours, using motorised transport to travel between the mountains. Impressively, Bent managed to complete the challenge

in less than 24 hours – with just 22 minutes to spare. He says: “My motivation for doing the Three Peak Challenge was to test myself physically and mentally, and as preparation for reaching the base camp of Mount Everest, which I am considering doing next year. “I did the Three Peak Challenge with my 45-year-old son Troels and our driver Luke.“As you get older, it is very important to keep active and healthy. Walking is a great way to do this and has long been a passion of mine. As well as keeping fit and eating as healthily as possible, I take high-quality dietary supplements,

such as Bio-Quinone Q10, to boost my energy levels and keep my immune system topped up.” Bent has been taking supplements for years, including glucosamine for joints and fish-oil for mental agility, and believes he wouldn't have been able to complete the Three Peaks Challenge at the age of 71 without the boost they give his body. He says: “The Three Peaks Challenge was an amazing 24 hours. By the time we finished and dropped my son off at home in Oxford we had been on the go from

8am on Thursday to 9pm on Friday with just an hour and a half's sleep in between. “We covered 1,228 miles in the car and spent £230 on petrol. However, the most amazing thing was that we managed to complete the challenge with just 22 minutes to spare. People ask how I stay so active at 71: I put it down to Bio-Quinone Q10!” For more information about Bio-Quinone Q10 call free on 0800 591 756, email uksales@pharmanord.co.uk or visit multivits.co.uk

ON GUARD

Revenge Ink’s Amita Mukerjee on how the pen is mightier than the sword

I

n 2007, after a decade-long career as an interpreter and translator in Paris, I created Revenge Ink, a new kind of publishing company. Until then, I had merely thought of being a writer and artist, a dream I’d cherished since my teens. But all that changed when I recorded the most recent part of my life (being a struggling interpreter in snooty Paris) in my first novel, Ugly Duckling and sent it out in early 2007 to publishers and agents along with my brother’s first novel, The Armageddon Mandala, a unique blend of outrageous humour, supernatural elements and profound environmental concern. When I read the responses I got, I quickly realised that big publishing companies were too afraid of taking risks. But as I saw it, without risk there could be no creativity, joy or excitement in life. How, I wondered, could you publish books without passion or whimsy? Without a feel for the chaotic and the unpredictable? Great writers like Dostoevski, the Beats, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett (among so many others) might have remained unknown if not for the enthusiastic risk-taking publishers who championed them. Then one night, while I was reading the poems of William Blake, I learned that Blake had published his own works. And that was it. The idea of Revenge Ink was born. In 2004, the beautiful documentary Mondovino highlighted an interesting dilemma: should everyone make the same kinds of wine because a few critics like them? Or should wines remain the subjective and personal handywork of their creators? Does democracy mean we must all look alike and think the same? Or does it mean, on the contrary, that we all count as we are? Individually? Warts and all? I decided to create a company that celebrated individuality, subjectivity and uniqueness. A company where writers felt safe and respected. Where they were guided not by marketing concerns but by purely artistic ones. I felt it was possible to create a business that promoted art, humanity, pleasure and yes, even prosperity. I still believe it. It has been an arduous but riveting journey. Today, we have five titles selling in Europe and Asia and next year will have more. Being a publisher isn’t easy, but I like being an entrepreneur and creating books. I continue to enjoy writing as well. Revenge Ink is living proof that nothing beats doing what you love; that freedom means enjoying your life, which necessarily involves taking risks; and finally, that artistic freedom is a mirror for individual freedom in all of society. When artists are forced to conform, all is lost. But when the pen is truly free, and every individual a hero, then the sword goes where it belongs – into the antique store. revengeink.com

Positive thinking

It’s not always easy to look on the bright side: Zara Baker turns to the professionals

S

mile and the whole world smiles with you. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy. There are times when we all need guidance and support in our lives, whether it’s relationship issues, work problems or financial difficulties. Often, these can have a nasty knock-on effect, blurring into one, unhappy period. Life is going to throw obstacles in our path and what we think will make us happy may not be the case once we have it. Indeed, on the other side, the grass isn’t always greener. All we can do is work at techniques to be positive and upbeat, realising along the way that a positive approach to life is a step closer to happiness... NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioners and local hypnotherapists offer tips on taking a more positive approach. See if they can work for you. “Nourish yourself at least once each week. Do things for yourself – not everyone who sings in a choir is the next Whitney Houston, but it can still make you feel good. Feeling good is the key here. The potential to make yourself happy on the inside by focusing on you for just one or two hours a week is immense.” Elizabeth Rose, 01723 726 549, rosylife.com “The miracle question –this is fun and takes a few minutes to bring clarity and focus. You go to bed one night, have a great nights sleep and awake refreshed. Something has happened over night – a miracle! A positive change that YOU desire has occurred. Take a few moments to consider: What would you see that is different? How do you look? What would you say to other people? What would other people say to you?How would you feel? Ann O’Keife, 01273 871524, livinglifefully.net

been putting off for a long time at home such as sorting out a store cupboard. Remember to be compassionate towards yourself and the changes that you are making.” Jonathan Conway, 01273 540425, 07956 855027, jonathanconway.co.uk “If you want to feel more positive, put your body in a really positive position – sit up, put your shoulders back, hold your head high, smile. Breathe deep into your chest and stomach. Remember a specific time when you felt really positive while you're still in this position, and allow yourself to be aware of how that feels in your body, or any pictures or sounds you associate with it. Enjoy!” Jo Wright, Phoenix Training & Coaching Ltd, 07843 052838. "Make a list of anything that's incomplete in your life, and then when you'll complete it. There's usually so much 'stuff' going on inside your nervous system that it needs a spring clean or clean out. It's a bit like washing up, nobody wants to do it... but when it's done and the kitchen’s clean, boy, what a nice feeling!" Terry Elston, NLP World Ltd Director, 01273 220897, nlpworld.co.uk “Tune out the talk show: Do you ever get that voice that says, ‘I’m rubbish at this!’ or ‘You’re too this’ or ‘You’re not enough that’? These critical internal thoughts are like a well meaning but slightly misguided radio talk show host. Get ready to change the channel! Notice the kind of things your inner critic says to you. Ask yourself, ‘Is this useful for me to hear this right now?’ Think of a voice you really can’t trust – the more daft, the better, e.g. Mickey Mouse,or someone you’ve heard with a really silly voice. Repeat the words your inner critic says in the new silly voice, out loud and with as much silliness as you can! Notice how the inner critic starts to sound different.” Viv Craske, 01273 208605, buildconfidence.info

“Write a plan of where you want to be in say 3, 6, 12 months time e.g. new job, plan a holiday or even a new house. Imagine your future becoming a brighter one, as it becomes brighter so will you feel more positive and with more energy. Make a list of things that you feel that you have achieved each day e.g. something that you achieved at work or maybe something that you have

“Presentation = Present/a(c)tion: Improve your presentation and you’ll find that the present massively improves, present meaning the now. Clear out all the negative emotions from the past although they may act as a common safety barrier. Have a positive outlook and take massive action to empower your life. Anchor your positive emotions by visualising a happy you, close your eyes, see what you’d see, feel what you’ll feel and hear what you’ll hear. Decide how much happiness you could deal with and choose a date when you can have it. Be specific!” Benjamin Bonetti, 0845 1949644, empower-your-life.co.uk

Love bites and fishnet tights Prepare to get your rocks off this Halloween as Andrew Kay looks forward to two hammy musical horrors, The Rocky Horror Show and Vampires Rock

I

f, like me, you are old enough to have seen The Rocky Horror Show pre-movie incarnation then you will remember something very different. Before the film, the most the audience might be expected to do was take a step to the left etc. The film brought with it a fabulous new generation of fans who like to dress up and join in. They have a great time, really they do, but I have witnessed performances where the cast have struggled to assert their presence at all, let alone as the stars of the show. It may sound cruel but I prefer my Rocky Horror the old fashioned way. That said, I cannot wait to see David Badella as the celebrated Frank ‘n’ Furter when Richard O’Brien’s outrageous classic returns to Brighton. Who would have thought that anyone could match the legendary Tim Curry? But Badella – who won an Olivier Award for his unforgettable performance as Satan/Warm Up Man in Jerry Springer: The Opera and is also well-known to TV viewers as surgeon Carlos Fashola in Holby City – really does. The Rocky Horror Show tells the story of squeaky clean sweethearts Brad and Janet, who are forced to seek refuge in a castle full of the maddest, baddest and sexiest group the world has ever seen. The timeless songs include ‘Sweet Transvestite’, ‘Damit Janet’ and, of course, the classic ‘The Time Warp’.

T

he Rocky Horror Show may have over 30 years’ more experience of shocking its audience, but Vampires Rock certainly has bite, with hardrocking anthems from the likes of AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, Meat Loaf, Suzi Quatro and Queen. It’s set in New York in the year 2030, where the undead are livelier than ever – especially in club Live And Let Die, where Baron Von Rockula and The Devil Queen reside. Toyah stars as the Devil Queen, long suffering wife to Steve Steinman’s Baron Von Rockula. “My husband, the Baron, is on the look out for a new bride,” she says. “But not if I have anything to do with it! I would say ‘over my dead body’, but then I’m already dead, aren’t I?!” The new bride in question is innocent, aspiring singer, Pandora (Emily Clark), who stumbles across the club in need of a job. Cue a host of classic rock songs, played live by the Baron’s hand picked band, The Lost Boys, and plenty of comedy as the Baron and his sidekick Stringfellow (Mike Taylor) attempt to convince Pandora to lose her soul to rock and roll. Combined with pyrotechnics, dancers and Steve Steinman’s famously powerful vocals, this is sure to have you rocking in the aisles (or on your knees with your air guitar above your head!) Vampires Rock, The Brighton Centre, 31 October, 7.30pm, £26.50 /£21.50. 0844 8471515/brightoncentre.co.uk.

BRIGHTON LIVE Set up in 2003, Brighton Live is a celebration and showcase for all that is good about Brighton music. Over the four days, more than 150 acts will play in over 20 venues – and it’s all free. Here are a few suggestions to mark in the diary. The Adventurists (1 October, Latest Music Bar)are made up of two of the most talented musicians in Brighton: The Hat’s Dan Clark and Turning Green’s Sam Walker and specialise in storytelling inventiveness. Gentleman Starkey (30 September, Audio) were name-checked three times in the Brighton Live programme as one to catch, and it’s not hard to see why – their deep and rocky, Nick Cave-esque stories work well in the live arena. Walker (30 September, Rendezvous Casino and Unitarian Church) will play new work produced by Grammy-winning producer Pete Smith. New band Thieves By The Code (30 September, The Ranelagh) are also an explosive alt-rock offering with some very interesting songs and dynamite rhythms. New Ninja Tune signings Grasscut (2 October, My Hotel) feature Andrew Phillips and Marcus O’Dair, whose gentle ambient-techno textures comes complete with snazzy suits. Old school R’n’B is currently being done no better than by The Shoestrung (30 September, Mrs Fitzherbert’s). They’re young, good-looking, and better than The Rolling Stones when they were this age. If indie pop is your thing, check out the gorgeous The Beautiful Word (30 September, The Foundry). Their music is razor sharp and full of interest. Luke Jones (30 September, The Brunswick) writes some of the most radiofriendly songs you’ll hear over the three days, from ballads to out-and-out indie rockers. Finally, ska juggernaut Second Time Lucky will be launching their album (1 October, The Brunswick). For more info visit brightonlive.net

INDIE GODS

As they prepare for a major UK tour, The Maccabees’ Hugo White remembers the days of the van called Ethel

“I

t has no meaning,” says The Maccabees’ guitarist Hugo White of his band’s name. “We decided to pick up the Bible and find something. It was an instant thing. We got lucky.” And so they did, but deservedly so. One of the very best and most likable of the recent wave of indie bands, The Maccabees (also a Jewish rebel army from BC) are continuing on an upward trajectory of popularity and critical acclaim thanks to a mix of simple yet direct songs that are straight from the heart, and their very likable personalities. Their two albums so far, Colour It In and Wall Of Arms, are full of blasts of pure indie, oscillating from dynamic rhythms to edgy balladry. Originally from south London, the band decamped to Brighton a few years ago following the release of their first single. Now, they are all back there – except for Hugo. “I think everyone felt like a change again. But I’m happy here.” Wherever they live it doesn’t really matter as they are constantly on the move, and are about to embark on a major UK tour following a gruelling round of festivals this summer here in the UK and Europe. It’s a far cry from their beginning. “We played lots of individual shows back then,” says Hugo. “We had a van which we called Ethel and which looked

like a van from the Bomb Squad. It was very unreliable and broke down a lot... We don’t spend much on comforts even now; we’ve never been that sort of band.” To kick off their UK tour they are doing a relatively intimate show at Komedia. “Brighton’s still a home for us so we’re really looking forward to this one. Plus our set will be much longer this time around... it’s a good opportunity to test it out.” Hugo is particularly excited about their gig at Brixton Academy: “It’s fulfilling our dream. We used to go and watch bands there, and now we’re playing it!” Straight after that they’ll be heading out to Malawi for their first ever gig in Africa. “It’s a festival called Lake of Stars and it’s for charity. We just saw it as an opportunity. There won’t be hardly any other British bands there, so it’s going to make a nice change.” Following their UK stint, the band will be in Europe for a couple of months and then, hopefully, they’ll have some time to write another record. “It takes us a long time to write. It’s a private thing; we need our space to write. But we’ve all got some good ideas on the go.” The Maccabees play Komedia, Gardner Street, Brighton on 29 September. komedia.co.uk 0845 293 8480

Itchy Scratchy Jason Evans initiates an exhibition of photography, featuring work from snappers around the globe including Tod Papageorge (Director of Graduate Photography at Yale University). Apparently nothing to do with The Simpsons’ cartoon within a cartoon, the title is a term coined to describe a picture which sits uncomfortably within a photographer’s practice, bringing about a change of tack. Itchy Scratchy, Permanent Gallery, Bedford Place, Brighton, 01273 710389. 3 Oct–8 Nov

Sam Hewitt A superb local painter (and one-time founding member of Clearlake), Sam Hewitt has moved on from work made from photographs to more abstract paintings that show the development of a personal symbolism as they strive to bring out ideas from his subconscious. He’s best known for his Brighton street-scapes, and has just been chosen to create a special installation for a forthcoming local street festival. Tin Drum, St. James’s Street, Brighton, 01273 624777. Until 12 November

Rising Styles Launched in 2004 as the Brighton Hip-Hop Festival, Rising Styles is the UK”s largest celebration of international hip-hop culture. With a fantastic line-up of high profile events designed to appeal to audiences new and old, this year’s festival is promising to be bigger and better than ever. Confirmed events for 2009 include Battle Jam, Rap Slam, a King Of The Beats special and Frieze Box, the street art event where artists are given a blank canvas on which to produce a work of art throughout the day, all taking place across a range of Brighton venues from Komedia to the Sallis Benney Theatre. Rising Styles exists to celebrate the richness, strength and diversity of hip-hop culture, and many of the events are free. Whether you’re interested in art or MCing, B-Boying or graffing, there’ll be something for you at this festival, which aims specifically to increase access to hip-hop art forms, challenge negative stereotypes, and bring new audiences to the scene. Rising Styles runs from 1– 4 October, across various Brighton venues. For further info and a full performance schedule visit risingstyles.com

L7 Film

Fame (PG) Dir: Kevin Tancharoen A reworking of a classic 1980 Alan Parker film as envisioned by dancer/choreographer/director Tancharoen. Time to take another trip to the high school of performing arts, where the teachers are tough but fair, and the kids are overflowing with talent and hormones. Maybe a smidge less dark than the original. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon and Connaught

Showing this week (500) Days Of Summer (12A) Dir: Marc Webb

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Third Rock From The Sun) plays Tom, a greetings card writer who falls for his boss’s new secretary (Zooey Deschanel) on Day One. By Day 31, love is in the air. Fast forward to Day 488 and it’s not so rosy. Back pedal for more of the story, which continues to unfold in a less than linear fashion. Showing at Odeon

District 9 (15)

The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee (15) Dir: Rebecca Miller

Surrogates (12A)

Dir: Neill Blomkamp

Touching and gripping satire in South Africa covering the ‘what if’ scenario of aliens coming to Earth only to be herded into a ghetto in Johannesburg. Portrayed with a mixture of reportage and regular narrative, it’s an incredible story about a very ordinary bureaucrat who, after a chance event, finds himself on the run and forming unlikely allegiances. Brilliantly done. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon and Duke of York’s

Away We Go (15) Dir: Sam Mendes Away We Go chronicles the trials and tribulations of a young couple

Dir: Jonathan Mostow

Imagine what it would be like if you could live through your favourite games avatar. Quick flash to an alternative universe and you can, with folk living out their wildest dreams through robotic surrogates while keeping their real selves safe in isolation. Bliss... until the first murder in 15 years rocks the world. FBI agents Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell are hot on the case, linking the crime to surrogate creation. Then Bruce’s surrogate gets killed, leaving old ’n’ grisly to come out and play for real. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon and Connaught

Moving into a peaceful retirement village in Connecticut with her husband would be idyllic to Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn) if it weren’t for the fact her husband’s 30 years older and she has a few other things to be getting on with. Subconscious resentment is joined by a few other reflexes long thought dormant. Costarring Julianne Moore, Alan Arkin and Keanu Reeves. Showing at Duke of York’s

NT Live: All’s Well That Ends Well (na) Dir: Marianne Elliott

expecting their first child as they travel the length and breadth of the US of A to find exactly the right place to bring up their little ’un.

Heartwarming and funny, this is a charming account of discovering that home really is where the heart is. Showing at Odeon and Duke of York’s

A live link-up to the National Theatre delivers this acclaimed rendition of The Bard’s fairytale story of love struggling to overcome impossible tasks as Helena attempts to win the love of the count, Bertram. Starring George Rainsford and Michelle Terry. Showing at Duke of York’s

A Rich Man You don’t have to come into the city to get to one of the best shows of the week, as American comic, character and television panelist Rich Hall takes in Bexhill-On-Sea as part of his UK tour. The Perrier Award-winner offers a show of two halves. He’ll be his usual, deadpan, grumpy belly-laugh inducing self in the first section, and his country singer alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw – redneck jailbird from Tennessee, married seven times, each time to a woman called Brenda – in the second. You may have caught him recently on his acclaimed BBC4 documentary How the West Was Lost, on QI, or even Live At The Apollo – pushing boundaries and being funny. Politicised without being preachy; a strong critic of his American homeland – yet not afraid to tell them so on home soil; Rich won an Emmy for his writing and appearances on The David Letterman Show. Having him in town this month is a true treat. Rich Hall, Thursday 1 October, De La Warr Pavilion, 8pm, £15. Also, catch Rich performing in the Magners Brighton Comedy Festival, Thursday 15 October at the Corn Exchange, 9.30pm, £15/13.

L7 Under review Read more reviews of local shows online at thelatest.co.uk SEPARATE TABLES The Terrence Rattigan revival is already well under way, but here’s another reminder that the smooth post-war stylist, so roughly treated by the ‘60s, was actually concerned with the messiness of human emotion. In Philip Frank’s funny and absorbing production, the CFT’s revolving stage switches smartly between the dining room and lounge of a coastal hotel, while a strip of video screen shows an increasingly stormy seascape. Amongst a brilliant cast of residents, Gina McKee and Iain Glen play two unlikely couples: a manipulative fading model and her alcoholic socialist ex-husband; a nervous, dowdy spinster and the aging “major” with whom she alone feels at ease. When the latter is arrested for soliciting gay sex, the humanity of each of his fellow guests is tested: Deborah Findlay’s quietly heroic hotelier again shows her empathetic metal, while Stephanie Cole’s Mrs Railton-Bell injects the words “on the esplanade” with all the outraged force of Lady Bracknell’s “a handbag!” In fact, of course, his behaviour seems even more benign when set against the mututally destructive cat and mouse chemistry of the heterosexual relationship in part one. For a cosy comedy about aloneness, this harbors some savage truths. Chichester Festival Theatre, Until 3 Oct (01243 781312) ✪✪✪✪✪ Bella Todd

TIM MINCHIN – READY FOR THIS Arriving on stage like an A A Milne rock star, Tim Minchin was full of verbose prose, precise lyrics and bombastic arrangements. Playing with light and sound – and the microphone stand – this barefooted Noel Coward for the 21st century held his audience most rapt when he took to song, especially those of a personal bent like ‘If I Didn’t Have You’ and ‘Prejudice’. A bit too preachy in bits of the first half, with his atheism as loudly proclaimed as

any gospel ‘Hallelujah’, he ended the second in the fantastic crescendo of ‘Darkside’, the lament of a man dumped for being too happy. Brighton Dome, 18 September ✪✪✪✪✪ Victoria Nangle

THE LAST NIGHT OF THE POMS Sir Lesley Patterson is one of the great comic creations of the 20th century, and he is alive, well – just – and spitting. His terrible tales had us cringing with delight and the Prokofiev pastiche was excellent. But Dame Edna herself is an immovable force, an entertainment terrorist with a licence to kill. No one and no thing is safe from the widow’s razor sharp tongue. The musical element was good but if I had any criticism, a tad too long, leaving not enough time for her acid observations. Carl Davies, the Liverpool Philharmonic and Brighton Festival Chorus were superb. An excellent evening all round. Brighton Centre, 18 September ✪✪✪✪✪ Andrew Kay

A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS “Play Karma Chameleon” yelled your standard slightly smug gigbore, perfectly summarising the somewhat dismissive attitude these New Romantic survivors have to put up with. Best known for one of the more ludicrous ‘80s hairstyles, vocalist (and sole original member) Mike Score now more closely resembles an American wrestling promoter, though his music retains much of the original band’s electro charisma. Blending harder-edged newer material with favourites including ‘I Ran (So Far Away)’, the focus remained on slick, atmospheric texture over content. Still, as a smoothly efficient dip into pop nostalgia, this deserved a much greater flock of devotees than the half-empty Concorde. Concorde 2, 16 September ✪✪✪✪✪ Nick Aldwinckle

AIR ON A SEA SCENE WHITE AIR FESTIVAL Brighton seafront, 18–20 September ✪✪✪✪✪

A

fter months of build-up, the White Air Festival descended on Brighton’s seafront in spectacular, highflying fashion. When the Red Arrows are around, all attention turns to the sky, and on this weekend they made their presence known, flying low across the city as the festival officially opened. Interest piqued, most people headed along after work on the Friday, sadly having missed almost an entire day of events. On the Friday, things weren’t packed and heaving as I would have expected, but there was a charged atmosphere as the crowd took in the new additions to Brighton’s famous seascape: a high-diving tower, skating ramp, an eclectic range of consumer stands/tents and, of course, the main stage set up for live music performances. Events took place both on land (BMX freestyle competition) and in the sea (jet ski display), whetting the appetite of any extreme sports enthusiast. OK, I may not fall into that category, but the awe-inspiring displays sure grabbed my attention and entertained me more than the auditions on The X Factor.

What made it even better? The public could have a go at a number of the sports, including wakeboarding and paragliding. All this before I’d even seen any of the bands perform... Making my way past the bar and Rowntrees Randoms stand (random indeed but ideally placed) to the main stage, I caught White Lies playing a late – but fantastic – set on the Friday night. Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro – my main reason for attending – ended the first night with some of their best hits including ‘Mountains’ and ‘Living Is A Problem...’. Madeira Drive was transformed. The lights on stage were stunning against the dark backdrop of the sea beyond. An outdoor festival is definitely the place to watch these bands. It was good to see a well organised festival with plenty on offer. It could have been busier, but there was an intimacy that I liked. People may have watched from Marine Parade above, but the atmosphere was lost on them. Let’s hope a festival like White Air can grace our shores again next year. That leaves me just enough time to work up the courage for some paragliding! Zara Baker

Tony Marks His loyalties in the glorious game are altered during a Manchester derby

T

he strangest thing happened to me over the weekend while watching the big Manchester derby on Sky Sports – I found myself wanting United to win! Like most non-‘ManUre’ fans, I normally take great pleasure in seeing them get beaten, however, over the course of the summer, Manchester City have become the common enemy of every neutral that loves the beautiful game. It was only 11 years ago that Manchester City were in the third tier of English football and still pulling in incredible crowds of around 30,000 people. And as the underdog of Manchester, most of us had a bit of a soft spot for them. However, since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan decided to give manager Mark Hughes unrestricted access to his bottomless pit of money, City have acquired an arrogance which doesn’t quite suit “The People’s Club of Manchester”.

“Football should be played on the pitch, not through PR stunts” Firstly, I have to agree with Sir Alex Ferguson (there’s a first time for everything!) that the poster of new City signing Carlos Tevez with the caption ‘Welcome To Manchester’ was “cocky”. This went up in their city centre before a ball had even been kicked this season. It’s just plain wrong! Football should be played on the pitch, not through PR stunts. Secondly, the way they relentlessly went after Everton defender Joleon Lescott left a bad taste in the mouth. Hughes kept making big money offers for Lescott over the summer, and Toffees boss David Moyes kept repeating that he had no intention of selling the England centre back, and asked ‘Sparky’ to show some respect and not try to unsettle his players, which Hughes predictably ignored. Lescott had a whiff of the wages that were on offer to him, put in a transfer request, and played like a donkey in Everton’s 6-1 defeat against Arsenal on the opening day of the season. So Moyes had no choice but to flog him. It practically amounted to bullying! And thirdly, Hughes (who always had a dirty side to his game as a player) saying that he believed Emmanuel Adebayor hadn’t intentionally meant to hurt Arsenal’s Robin van Persie after he’d scraped his studs down the Dutchman’s face because he’d “looked into (the mercenary’s) eyes” is laughable! Hughes showed a real lack of class in the build up to the derby against his old club and boss, so when Michael Owen scored the winner in a classic 4-3 victory for United after 95 minutes and 26 seconds, I found myself jumping out of my seat and punching the air in delight! So now, the sort of people who usually respond with “anyone but United” when asked who they want to win the league, might actually start saying “anyone but United or City”. Mind you, having said all that, if a rich Arab wants to invest £200m into Albion’s team, he has my blessing!

Spark up Electric Dreams, BBC4, Tuesday, 9pm

P

rimary history was always the most interesting at school – finding Anne Frank’s diary, songs from the American underground railway, and the odd spearhead when off exploring woods I probably wasn’t supposed to be in. So it was with a mix of nostalgia – and fear that the nostalgia bubble was about to be popped – that I sat down to watch Electric Dreams. The premise: take one modern family and drop them in the ’70s with ’70s gadgetry, each day advancing a year in technology and providing them with some ‘new’ gizmo that had just been discovered – be it teasmaid or chest freezer. Bonza. With the air that’s been aspired to by a number of edutainment programmes, only emphasised by the fact it’s Robert Llewellyn narrating, this is – to quote a favourite information tome of the 80s – ‘Fun Finding Out.’ Helped by a team of ’70s gadget researchers, including the lovely comic Tom Wrigglesworth as the team’s most frequent front man, from blackout advisor to TV repairman, this family of five have all a ’70s family could desire: that's the highs of the chopper bike and family slide shows, and the lows of absolute boredom that sends son Hamish where no true ’70s lad would dare to go – helping his mum with the housework. Another side product of this fun to watch experiment is the family dynamic. At one point Mum loses her rag at Hamish and sends him to his bedroom without any supper, proclaiming angrily that if this was really the ’70s he’d’ve got

a clip round the earhole to go with the rest of his punishment. Dad gently vetoes the very suggestion and when the power cut kicks in – for striking authenticity – he chortles at the irony of there being so little to do anyway that they could miss. Mum, like a Beano mum of the ’70s, says through gritted teeth he could always help her out. The little lady of the ’70s could never afford to be little with the amount she had to shoulder. This was engaging. I didn’t expect it to be. I thought it would be all Space Hoppers and Pong. Those are present. But it also brought out a nostalgia I’d forgotten about; for power cuts and sloppy puddings that took hours to make; for playing in the snow, and the excitement of something new arriving at the household that possessed a button for turning it on. Plus, quite a few interesting facts I wasn’t aware of, like the number of homes not to have central heating and that the amount of time parents spend with their kids has gone up rather than down in these current PlayStation-obsessed times. Edutainment at its best. I can’t wait to find out what relics they’ll dig up for the ’80s and ’90s shows.

thursday 1 october Captive For 18 Years: The Jaycee Lee Story Channel 4, 9pm As much as the story of an 11year-old kidnapped and kept in captivity for 18 years is not one we want to believe, it grabbed the world by the collar and demanded attention when it hit the papers. Here’s the full story to date, with testimonials from friends and family of Jaycee Lee.

Never Mind The Buzzcocks BBC2, 9.30pm Ho yes, it’s back – with a new team captain in the form of the irrepressible and rather surreal Noel Fielding and the first in a series of guest hosts – Gavin And Stacey’s James Corden. The big daddy of Buzzcocks, Phill Jupitus, will be returning with this new bunch, keeping them in line as the kids take over the schoolyard.

School Of Comedy E4, 10pm The latest in the Channel Four franchise’s exploration of new British comedy. After a storming reception at 2008’s Edinburgh Festival, this sketch show of kids playing adult roles with humour finally comes to the small screen. Featuring an un-PC teacher, some squabbling security guards and many more characters.

friday 2 Friday Night With Streisand And Ross BBC1, 9pm You know someone’s a diva when they’ve got enough clout to have their name join the host’s in the title of the programme. It’s still a coup for Jono to be talking to Barbra, though, as this is her first British interview this century. Includes an overview of her life and tracks from her new album.

Benidorm ITV1, 9pm The award-winning sitcom returns, with as good a reason as any for the same characters to return to the same resort – a comp trip for the hostage situation last year. Bonza! There are also a few new faces popping up, like Martin’s new girlfriend, who’s keen to explore beyond the confines of the resort.

How I Met Your Mother E4, 7.35pm It’s being billed all across E4 as the new Friends, and with synopses like these, it’s easy to be convinced. Lily and Robin are gate-crashing a high school prom to – get this – check out if the band that’s playing is good enough to book for Marshall and Lily’s wedding at short notice. High-anxiety Monica twinned.
