It’s Brighton breezy, what it is that Brighton has to offer, what makes youthful and fun. It’s quirky, independent and Brighton special, what deters firms from doing rather bohemian. business here and what we need to do and say to There’s a serious side too.

Yes, we know the parking’s a nightmare and Those behind the city prospectus might be so do many of the millions of visitors who come seen as defining the Brighton brand. It’s not a here every year. It’s not unknown for developers phrase they seem keen to use. One of them, Tony to grumble. There’s a familiar litany of projects, Mernagh, chairman of the Brighton & Hove thwarted or stalled, but it’s gradually being Economic Partnership, said: “We would be on a bit displaced by a growing list of sites where of a hiding to nothing if we were trying to create progress has been made. a brand for Brighton, we’re so many things. This The progress is being charted in a ‘city is not an attempt to define Brighton as a brand. If prospectus’, a brochure if you prefer. But this is we were going there, nobody would be satisfied. not some kind of pamphlet targeting tourists and “The prospectus is about creating an online day-trippers. It’s geared towards the big-hitters of presence to promote Brighton and Hove to the UK the business world – not just those in property, and international investors. It’s the although land and buildings have a crucial place entrepreneurial capital of the UK. The prospectus in all this.

There are three pillars supporting the prospectus – opportunities, the universities and “Brighton the place”. Big employers want to know about the demography of the towns and cities where they are based and about the economic profile. The workforce and their skills are crucial. The prospectus talks about Brighton and Hove as a young and growing city – and an international city at that. Case studies underline Brighton’s entrepreneurial spirit, highlighting the likes of Steve Rayson. The former council officer set up e-learning company Kineo seven years ago and now employs hundreds of staff around the world. Mr Mernagh said that the universities (Sussex and Brighton) turned out world-leading research and had a track record of turning innovation into business success. He said that the prospectus talked about the public and private education that’s available in and around Brighton and Hove. For some, Roedean and Brighton College might spring to mind. But there are dozens of private language schools and 35,000 multilingual international students in the city. The language schools, such as Study Group International, are worth more than £100 million a year to the city. “Brighton the place” is a dynamic, international, compact city with a fantastic cultural offer and world-class landmarks. Between the South Downs and the sea are the Royal Pavilion, the Dome, the Palace Pier and Regency architecture. The Brighton Festival attracts performers and punters from around the world and Glyndebourne is among the many offerings right on the doorstep. A local online marketing firm, GSB Associates, has been given the job of coming up with a website that has the right look, feel and functionality. Another local consultancy, This Is Regeneration Ltd, is writing the content. Much of the credit for the whole idea belongs to Geoff Raw, the council’s strategic director. Three important tests are in the pipeline; one is a visit in November by a group from UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), which promotes Britain and British business around the world. They are a key point of contact in our embassies abroad when big international firms want to open an office or factory here. Another key is whether Brighton and Hove is chosen as the ‘future cities demonstrator’, a decision worth up to £24 million. The application has to be in by mid-November. A positive outcome will help underwrite the Greens’ One Planet Living policy. The third test is whether Brighton and Hove is made one of Britain’s so-called second-tier cities. The government has given extra money and freedom to eight core cities outside London, including Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester. If Brighton and Hove is included in the next tier, it will have a better chance of competing for investment and jobs. So although there is a reluctance to talk about the Brighton brand, it is clear that the key selling points are being pulled together. The Economic Partnership is stepping up, supported by the council and the Chamber of Commerce and others, to showcase the best of Brighton and Hove. We have barely half a dozen big private sector employers, such as American Express or Legal and General and while we cherish our many independent traders, luring a big employer to Brighton would provide a timely boost for jobs ■

7 days of headlines with phil mills Brighton tackles underage drinking, no sign of work (men), pupils are A* and dogs bark fire


he vast majority of youth crimes committed in Brighton and Hove are drink related so it was disappointing to learn that some shops may be prosecuted for selling booze to under age youths. Test purchases by Sussex Police and the city council were carried out at four outlets in the city – and all failed and sold alcohol to under 18s. Insp Roy Apps said: “This does not reflect on what most of the premises are doing but all should be aware – there will be more operations like this and there will be zero tolerance to those who fail.” Booze was blamed for a couple getting carried away and having sex on the Brighton beach in broad daylight, causing outrage among families sitting just yards away. Police let the couple off with a fixed penalty for “lewd” behaviour. City councillors are worried by the boozy

Brighton & Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat on Better Transport


recent report by a national transport charity, the Campaign for Better Transport, has shown that Brighton & Hove is the UK’s least car dependent city outside of London, and a leader in sustainable transport. They looked at 26 of the largest urban areas across the country to see how things had progressed from two years ago. Many factors were taken into account to assess how each city was doing. These included how

Email Crowds crammed into the city over the Bank Holiday Monday – shame the sun stayed away and was replaced by wind and cloud – but the weekend proved again why this city is the place to be. Have you noticed how, every so often, you come across road works where there’s never any sign of anyone doing any work or there are sets of temporary traffic lights yet no visible sign, like a hole in the road, as to why the lights have been installed? Elizabeth Jones emailed about lights at the junction of Eldred Avenue and Tongdean Lane, in Withdean, Brighton. She said: “I go to the nearby gym several times a week and have yet to see a workman there or any reason why the lights were put up. The least they could do is put up a sign to say what’s going on.” Take note council please. And have you got a roadworks rage you want to get off you chest? Email City school pupils won top marks

for GCSEs – they boosted their A*-C results to 56 per cent, up from 52.8 per cent last year – bucking the national trend for results, where A*-C grades saw a fall for the first time since the exams were introduced 24 years ago. Cllr Sue Shanks, chair of the council’s children committee, praised teachers: “They have been willing to try new strategies to secure improvements in pupil performance, and I’d like to thank them.” Meanwhile, it was announced that there’ll be a public meeting in October over plans to set up a £1.7m permanent travellers’ site at Horsdean, Patcham.

Our city’s bus usage, punctuality and satisfaction levels placed us top. We were excited to have also been awarded top marks for our future plans to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists, continue investment in public transport and reduce congestion. Our current projects include 20mph speed limits in residential areas, new cycle and bus lanes on the Lewes Road, public space improvements at Seven Dials and Preston Street, changes at Brighton

Station and the proposed ‘Valley Gardens’ scheme. We also make sure that new developments have good walking, cycling and public transport links, so that everyone can get to and from them easily. The report also echoed our concerns about how outdated and inappropriate infrastructure can put the lives of vulnerable road users at risk. This is why we have brought forward ambitious plans to modernise our transport systems to help all who travel around the city. The cost of a visit to the petrol pumps will only continue to rise, and congestion and air pollution is already critically high in the city – so we’re investing in alternatives to help keep the city moving. or Cassi Hair and Beauty 30 Marina Square, Waterfront, Brighton Marina, BN2 5WB Email:

New strikers?

Joel Essex finds there’s only one Charlie Oatway BHAFC has granted Charlie Oatway a testimonial following ten years of service to the Albion, and the former skipper has agreed to donate half of the benefit to Albion In The Community (AITC). A number of events are planned throughout the season to celebrate Charlie’s time at the club, not just as a player but also as an employee of AITC, and since 2009, as first-team coach. Charlie, who actually began his professional career with Cardiff City, appeared 248 times for the Albion between 1999 and 2006 playing a key role in the club’s back-to-back Championship wins during 2000/01, 2001/02 and captaining the side to Division Two play-off success in 2004. After his Albion and professional career was prematurely ended by injury in 2007, he won wide acclaim for admitting to his difficulties with reading and writing and completed an adult literacy course with AITC. He then went on to become a community relations manager with the club’s charity and in 2011 wrote Tackling Life, an inspiring account of his footballing career and his battle to overcome his problems. In recognition of his work with AITC, and ongoing support, Charlie has kindly agreed to

donate 50 per cent of the proceeds from his testimonial to AITC. “It’s been a great honour spending ten years of my life at the Albion, both on and off the pitch, and I want to thank the club for giving me this testimonial,” says Charlie. “After all the help Albion in the Community gave me after I finished playing it’s only right that I give something back. I’m really looking forward to an exciting year of events and hope the fans can get involved as much as possible.” Albion boss Gus Poyet paid tribute to Charlie’s contribution to the club: “It’s hard not to notice Charlie! He’s been such a positive influence on the dressing room since I arrived at the football club.” The testimonial events start with a special Sporting Lunch on Friday 12 October, at the Brighton Hilton Metropole, and will end with a testimonial game against high profile opposition in either July or August next year. A series of ‘Charlie’s Community Challenges’ aimed at raising money for AITC will also take place throughout the season. Fans will be able to vote on which challenges they would like Charlie to take part in. Oatway added: “Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not the biggest fan of heights. I’m not too keen on water either so I’m sure the testimonial committee and Albion fans have got something special in store for me!” A website has been set up for people to keep up to date with all the latest news and information on Charlie’s testimonial year.

Great as it was to see both Barnes and Macca get goals against Barnsley, there is still a clear yearning for that elusive striker, who may have been signed by the time of writing, so please forgive if dated. Although, I have a feeling it will be a post transfer window loanee Gus ends up with – a striker to poach those against-the-run-of-play type of goals. Recent terrace talk of Glenn Murray returning has stirred a few interesting reactions. Most would be happy, it seems; he knows the style of play Gus prefers and when free of injury, scored for fun in the promotion season. A significant minority would be mortally offended if we took him back from that lot up the road (an important consideration). However, he could be the missing piece of the mosaic and who’s to say that a fit and firing Murray paired with Mackail-Smith wouldn’t form the most lethal partnership since Ward and Mellor? I’d pay to see that, although the thought of Crystal Palace benefitting leaves me slightly queasy. Lastly, as the summer fades and the autumnal nights draw in, the thought of those cold, dark evenings when the floodlights are on and the stadium is full and rocking is enough to sustain most fans through the phoney war of the transfer window. The league table rarely looks anything like it will come May. The usual rule is don’t look at the table until October, then the consistent clubs start to show. Let’s hope we’re banging in the goals and keeping them out courtesy of Mr Kuszczak.

oor old Barnsley, and with some Albion cast-offs in the team too. David Gonzalez will shudder every time he sees the Amex from now on. Not only was his shaky debut (and only game) at the Amex a nerve-shredding experience when he played for the blue and white stripes, but he seemed to let the nerves get to him when he was between the sticks for Barnsley. Contrast this with the performance of Tomasz Kuszczak who has undoubtedly been the signing that most accurately encapsulates Gus Poyet’s intent – that of being very hard to beat. Only one goal conceded from open play in the first three matches is the more significant statistic than points scored, even more than the five goals put past poor Senor Gonzalez. It’s hard not to feel sorry for goalkeepers, they are by all accounts the drummers of the “As shrewd a team. The stories about them are legendary and the jokes are legion. signing as I ‘Bruno’ may be well on the way to being a fans’ favourite and Vicente and Bridge may be have seen Mr the classiest of the signings so far, but if there is glory to be had at the season’s end, Poyet make” then I would wager that it will be the goals saved and clean sheets of this impressively understated Polish international who will be the real reason. As shrewd a signing as I have seen Mr Poyet make, perhaps even more so than any impending striker or even, dare I even think this – one Senor Vicente?

As the hysteria built up, Lewis Hamilton the footballer was soon overwhelmed and, still without his bags, jumped into the men’s toilets where he locked himself inside a cubicle. Eventually he was rescued by airport staff and taken to a chauffeur driven car that had been waiting for him.

s the iconic Brighton hotel has just announced a £5 million refurbishment, we thought we would find out more about what goes on behind the scenes at The Grand from key members of its staff, hearing their thoughts on how the refurbishment will be a brilliant development for them and the hotel. First we meet Chris McKendrick – Maintenance Manager: “My job is to look after the infrastructure of the hotel. I need to make sure that everything runs smoothly for the guests and staff here. The hotel is so big it’s definitely a full time job but I’m an engineer by trade so I love developing solutions for how to make all aspects of The Grand work perfectly. “I can control the entire hotel from my iPhone. I introduced a new Building Management System that controls every aspect of the hotel from the water tanks in the attic to the lights. If a guest asks for the

temperature to be regulated in their room late at night, this can be changed at a click of a button, wherever I might be. “I’ve been here for three years and it wasn’t like this when I got here; everything was running 24 hours a day, but everything is now on a timer to save energy. Not a lot of hotels have this and it’s very unusual for a hotel as old as The Grand to have it. “This means we’re very green. We are really big on recycling and are expecting to get a Green Tourism Gold Certificate, which will make us the greenest hotel on Brighton’s seafront! “There are some unusual aspects of my job. Rescuing stuck seagulls from the roof is one of them, as is collecting debris from a guest’s room after they have a rock-star moment. People also don’t tend to realise how much work goes into keeping up the hotel’s standards; we test the water quality and air temperature constantly.

“The £5 million refurbishment is a massive bonus. It will help the hotel keep up its five-star standards. My team and I are really proud of all the work we have done so far and now we can look forward to the next chapter in The Grand’s tapestry. “People in Brighton are going to love it. There is going to be a brand new restaurant with a fresh fish counter and the lower ground floor is being totally transformed into a spa which will offer seven treatment rooms and a four-station nail bar.

Latest Blogs Read all these and more, now online at The Ecospot Blog – Five edible plants for a coastal garden: “We are quite lucky here on the South Coast, as we tend to have pretty warm weather in the summer and milder winters than many other places in the UK. Brighton itself has a bit of a micro climate as it is protected by the South Downs, so often you will find settled weather in the city whilst it is raging just a few miles north. But that all said, if you live near any coast you will have far better success if you use salt and wind tolerant plants in your garden or on your balcony.” Do Not Get Me Started – Changes to call centre work: “Recently I read an article while browsing the internet one bored evening at work, that caught my eye concerning a new

employment strategy the government are thinking of implementing; and it involves setting up call centres within prisons. Admittedly it took me by surprise and instantly I thought it would be the biggest waste of time and money. After all, call centre work, from personal experience, is the most soul sucking job I have ever had. Does the government really think that a bunch of convicts sitting at the end of a telephone listening to the 80something-year-old woman moan about her car insurance when you have rung up about her banking inquiries is likely to improve the situations for these people?”

Snap Shots Photographer Diana Frangi captures the faces and places that define our city. This week: Sir Peter Blake

Life slows you up a little at the age of 80, but I will never retire, I like my work. For the new version of the Sgt Pepper album cover I’ve chosen people I admire, great people and some who are dear friends. I had a very long list of people but couldn’t fit everyone in. For this show at Ink_d we also included a wide range of positive and good stuff from the ‘60s through to today. My favourite things about Brighton are Max Miller, the fish ’n’ chips and the pubs.

Godfather of Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake, celebrated his 80th birthday this year with an exhibition at Brighton’s Ink_d Gallery in the North Laine, during July. In the late 1950s he became one of the best known British pop artists with his work exhibited alongside David Hockney at the Tate. Sir Peter is best known for his design of the sleeve for Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and to mark his birthday he produced an updated version of this iconic artwork, probably the most famous record cover ever produced. The recent ‘Happy Birthday Peter Blake’ exhibition in Brighton included both new and rare pieces of his work.



If post-sporting blues are threatening to dampen your spirits this autumn, put a swing back in your step with a trip to the country’s biggest wine festival: the Tesco Wine Fair. If you and your friends have always wanted to know more about your favourite wines then the Tesco Wine Fair is for you. This is a really fun day out for anyone and everyone who enjoys drinking wine, whether you’re a complete novice or you consider yourself a bit of a wine buff. Meet the people who are actually responsible for producing the wines that you drink. You can also take part in a free workshop or ‘wine walk’ led by experts, including TV personality Joe Wadsack. These will help you get to grips with all the basics including how to taste a wine and how to match wine with food. We have four pairs of tickets to give away to the Tesco Wine Fair in Brighton, 29–30 September 2012. Q: Which TV personality is leading a ‘Wine Walk’ at this year’s fair?


Unwind with this wonderfully funny and warm second novel by Lizzie Enfield. Uncoupled tells the story of Holly, a mother with a husband she loves and a time-consuming job in London. So when she is in a train accident on the London to Brighton line, she knows it's just a small chapter in her life and nothing has changed. But Holly can’t forget the younger man who comforted her in the chaos of the crash and when she sees him again on her daily commute, there’s a flash of recognition between them. Uncoupled is published in paperback by Headline Reviews on 13 September and we have six copies of this compelling novel to give away. Q: Who is the author of Uncoupled?


To celebrate the recent cinema release of nail-biting action film, The Sweeney, we have five Sweeney goody bags up for grabs. The ‘70s cop classic returns to a modern-day London with Inspector Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) as the tough Flying

Squad detective with an unconventional approach to policing. Together with his partner George Carter (Ben Drew) the pair are old school crime fighters, enforcing the law in today's underworld. The duo always get the results, and with a bank heist in progress and Jack's old enemy returning to the London crime scene, Regan will do whatever it takes to stop them. Q: Who plays Jack Regan?

Television comedy legend Jimmy Tarbuck talks to Victoria Nangle about his first love of stand-up, stealing from Terry-Thomas and why he’s not going to be a panto dame What keeps you coming back to stand-up? “I suppose in a form, laughter is a drug. And I can’t describe to you the feeling of that when you’re the one they’re laughing with. It’s wonderful. You might ask Ken Dodd the same thing, he’s 83 years of age and he still does it.”

You released quite a few records, didn’t you? “I’ve tried every aspect of this business. The only thing I’ve never done and don’t think I’ll do now is strip off.”

Absolutely, I think you find every comic keeps going back to this fantastic euphoria... “Well, it is and if you can do it at a certain level still, I will always do it. But when the level slips, and believe me I’ve got a lot of people around who would tell me that, I would stop.”

No burlesque for Jimmy Tarbuck then? “I know. The family want me to play one of the ugly sisters in pantomime but I’m not going to do it, or a dame – I will not do that just for their amusement.”

Do you know your audience well, then? “I know that people have been watching me for 50 years and they came again. This show I’m doing is the story of my life really.” So it’s more of a raconteur piece? “Oh no, I still do stand-up but I love the ‘Question and Answer’ because it keeps me on my toes. It’s a lot of fun with the audience; they shout out what they want to know.” Are there regular questions that you get? “Sometimes they’re very cheeky questions, yeah and they **** themselves laughing, if you pardon the expression, at my expense.” What kind of questions? “I’m not telling you, you gotta come and watch!” You wrote a book, Tarbuck On Showbiz in 1985, are you likely to write an update on that? “I’ve been asked about my autobiography and things like that, if there was real interest I’d write it so we’ll see. Maybe it will come nearer the time. I can’t stand people of 25 writing their life story, their life hasn’t begun, you know? You see these people, My Life, it’s a load of balls. At 25 you haven’t even lived yet.” A lot of comedians seem to move into acting a lot more. You seem to have touched on that but have you ever wanted to explore it more yourself? “If the part was right I wouldn’t hesitate. I did a piece with my daughter Liza, she had a hit show called Linda Green and there was a part in it for me, and I did Brazen Hussies, which was a TV film with Robert Lindsay, Alun Armstrong and Julie Walters. It was an honour to be acting alongside people who are really great.” Has that made you more hesitant to just take anything? “I wouldn’t just take anything, no no no. I nearly got a very large part in a Walt Disney film, The Happiest Millionaire, and I got to the last two, between Tommy Steele and I, and Tommy got it. I would have loved to have done that, I would have loved to make an appearance in a Walt Disney because Walt Disney is sheer class.”

I see you more as a P.T. Barnum... “Thank you very much, yeah, that would be me. Roll up, roll up! Yes, I could do that!”

“The only thing I’ve never done and don’t think I’ll do now is strip off.”

Or maybe the wizard from The Wizard of Oz? “Yes, that wouldn’t be bad, I’d like that. I got offered the lead in Brazen Hussies. No it wasn’t Brazen Hussies, it was called Hairspray. They offered me the lead in that but they wanted me for a year and I really couldn’t do it for a year. I couldn’t go into the theatre every night of the week for a year, it would drive me bonkers.” Who last made you laugh so much you nearly fell of your chair? “Someone told me a joke on the golf course yesterday, but I’m not gonna repeat it to you, you’re a young lady. I roared laughing, there was four of us and three of us roared with laughter. And it was rude. They’re nearly always rude the good gags.” You’ve never been tempted to get bluer? “Well, no I’m cheeky, I don’t F and blind, that doesn’t appeal to me on the stage, I save that for the golf course when I miss a putt.” What’s your favourite live gigging memory? “That’s easy. It was in 1963, 27 October, they put me on Sunday Night At The London Palladium, which was the biggest show ever in those days, 20 odd million viewers, Bruce [Forsyth] was the host and it was just nice. And in that distant memory of all those years ago it was just a wonderful experience.” Your image is used all over the place, I was researching it and I found key rings, T-shirts and bags with your picture on. How do you feel about being a bit of a style icon? “Well, there you go. I’ll tell you what to do – you find out whose selling these, get me the money and I’ll split it with you.”

Well, I found them on Amazon... “On Amazon, alright I’ll have a look at it. Yeah it’s going good still, bit of a renaissance with the Piers Morgan show which went down very well for me, he was more than kind and very easy for me to work with. And it’s all bubbled up again which is lovely.” I heard a rumour that you stole Terry-Thomas’ diamond-encrusted cigarette holder? “Yes, that’s right.” Would you say it's a good way for young comics to get attention? “Well, I didn’t do it for that. I was waiting to go on and at the end of the evening he said, ‘I can’t use you now’. I was about 18 and it was a big blow to my ego and I walked out the theatre and there it was on the table, and I walked out with it. End of story.” I would like to thank you for explaining to me about spreadbetting when I was a child... “Did I?” Your 1980s game show Winner Takes All did... “Well, you can go on the 3/1, 4/1 or 10/1. I mean, I used to get very clever people that didn’t know how to bet and I went with the rules, very strict rules on quiz shows where money’s involved and you’re not allowed to help them. And I’m trying to go, ‘go for the 4/1!’ and I couldn’t, and you’d see people lose only because they were very well read but not great with betting.” I’d like to bring back Winner Takes All... “Well, you write in and get it brought back. I’ll do it and you can be the hostess. There you are, love.” Jimmy Tarbuck is playing at Congress Theatre, Eastbourne, Sunday 9 September 2012, 7.30pm, £20.

Food & Drink Andrew Kay shares the highlights of The Brighton & Hove Food & Drink Festival

Harvest fest I

n 2011 the Brighton & Hove Food & Drink Festival won a much coveted Sussex Business Award. It came after the long haul of staging an ever growing event, year on year, often with sparse funding but always with the massive support of the public. For the directors and the committee the award came just at the right time, helping to secure the future and cementing its place in the top ten food festivals in the world, as listed by The New York Post. Such acclaim has taken the festival on to the next level and helped secure a brilliant future. This September sees ten days of food and drink festivities to tempt every palate so here are my highlights from this autumn’s festival.

Sussex Wine Gala Dinner Supporting Rockinghorse children’s charity Enjoy the very best of Sussex at the festival’s charity gala dinner hosted in the Dome Room at Hotel du Vin. Head chef Rob Carr will be creating a meal using only the best local ingredients from the two counties, finishing with a Sussex cheese platter courtesy of La Cave a Fromage on Western Road. Each course will be accompanied by a glass of Sussex wine contributed by Sussex’s finest – and award-winning – vineyards including Ridgeview Wine Estate, Bolney Estate and Stopham Estate. Representatives will be on-hand to introduce their wines and answer any questions. The festival has been supporting Rockinghorse Children’s Charity throughout 2012 and the profit from every ticket will be donated. This event is supported by Hotel du Vin, La Cave a Fromage, Stopham Estate, Bolney Estate and Ridgeview Estate. Thursday 13 September 2012, Dome Room, Hotel du Vin, Ship Street, Brighton, 7.30pm, advance tickets £75 including aperitif, four courses and wines available from Hotel du Vin reception or call 01273 718588.

International Chef Exchange For our second ICEx we are delighted to be welcoming Lyon’s finest – Yves Rivoiron of Cafés des Fédérations and Jean Louis Gelin of La Meuniere who will join forces to host a fabulous Chef Exchange dinner at L’Eglise in Hove. Both members of the esteemed L’Association de Défense des Bouchons Lyonnais, their focus is on the pleasures of traditional Lyonnaise cuisine and great hospitality. Our first ICEx at The Restaurant at Drakes was an instant sell-out success so booking is essential. Advance tickets £39 including five courses and a welcome glass of kir (wines are available to buy by the glass or bottle). For more information and tickets please call L’Eglise on 01273 220868 or visit

Make Your Case It all begins with a bang, with the welcome return of the hugely popular Make Your Case. Hosted by myself and wine guru Henry Butler, we’ve invited top wine merchants, growers and Brighton bars to join us on stage to present their chosen wine whilst you sample and score it out of ten. We’re blind tasting so you won’t know what the wine is – it might be from Sussex, or from Chile, cost £30 a bottle, or under a fiver. At the end we’ll tally up the scores and see which wine has won the public vote, and one lucky guest will win a case featuring all the wines we’ve sampled and enjoyed.

Children’s Food Festival Sponsored by PHS Wastetech The Children’s Food Festival once again features free workshops and activities which encourage children to have fun with their food, explore new tastes and smells, and even learn some new recipes. Based in the gardens of the Brighthelm Centre, this September we’ve got two main activity areas, the first exploring ‘Composting Magic’ with our friends from PHS Wastetech, and the other expanding on our hugely popular Food Bravery activity with the team from Wagamama on North Road. With lots of other hands-on things to do for budding foodies, plus a host of exciting free ticketed workshops, this is an unmissable family day out. Saturday 8 – Sunday 9 September 2012, 10am – 5pm Supported by Brighthelm, Wagamama and Brighthelm Gardens, Queens Road/North Road, Brighton. All workshops are free – book online

Big Sussex Market Sponsored by The Montefiore Hospital The festival’s anchor event, and the largest free foodie event in the south of England, with an attendance of over 57,000 people during the Spring Harvest earlier this year. With quality, local produce firmly at its heart, the Big Sussex Market features over 80 stalls of growers, producers and restaurants. This September also sees a dedicated wine bar hosted by the team from Hotel du Vin on New Road showcasing the world-class wine grown on our own doorstep, and the University of Brighton will be presenting their international Hot Pot initiative. This is the ultimate event for any foodie! Saturday 8 – Sunday 9 September 2012, 10am – 6pm New Road, Jubilee Street, Jubilee Square, free entry


Sussex & The World Market Sponsored by Ritter Courivaud. Featuring the Live Food Show sponsored by Latest 7 & Wine Masterclasses The festival’s closing weekend is a huge celebration of Sussex and international food and drink – last year saw 37,000 people enjoy a glorious two days of deliciousness. Whether you’re picking up goodies to take home, or grazing at one of the many hot food stalls, you’ll be able to taste the cuisines of France to Thailand via Germany, Japan and India. This year sees the Live Food Show, which I will present, with two days of cookery demonstrations by local chefs as well as a host of other fun food activities including Tutored Wine Masterclasses, The Big Brighton Bite Off Produce Awards, The Wobblegate Wobblympics (seeing will be believing), and Sussex Cheese Bowling.

Perfect smiles Who wants to see metal braces when you can get ones nobody will even notice?

Comfortable, effective, and most importantly; invisible. Invisalign is the braces solution everyone has been looking for. Since first introduced in 2008 Invisalign has taken the cosmetic dentistry industry by storm, with over 730,000 patients already currently undertaking or having completed this treatment. How do they work? Well, these aligners work just like fixed braces, by gradually and gently shifting your teeth into a new, straighter position. However, unlike normal braces, Invisalign braces are easy and comfortable to maintain. With no metal brackets to attach and no wires to be tightened, you won’t – and more importantly other people won’t – even realise you’re wearing them! Invisalign also gives you the freedom to eat and drink whatever you choose while undergoing the procedure. Because Invisalign braces are removable, there are absolutely no dietary restrictions placed on the patient. Invisalign is not yet covered by the NHS, and treatment is quite costly, generally starting at around £2,500, but finance options are available from most cosmetic dentists, making the treatment more affordable. The perfect smile can go a long way in boosting your confidence. Check to see if you are eligible for treatment and reap the benefits of Invisalign. It’s the future of braces. Words: Sophie Halle-Richards

The ultimate in invisible orthodontics


he team at Total Orthodontics in Brighton have been perfecting the smiles of Sussex for over ten years. As specialist orthodontists they are experts at straightening teeth and have the all important credentials to prove it. Using the very latest ‘invisible braces’ they have positively transformed thousands of smiles for patients of all ages. As well as Invisalign® Full, Total Orthodontics also offers the newer Invisalign® i7. This exciting new brace is aimed at those who have mild crowding, and would like their teeth straightened discreetly in as little as three months. Invisalign® isn’t suitable for every patient, fortunately the clinicians at Total Orthodontics are experienced users of a whole host of alternative inconspicuous braces. The Incognito™ brace for example features custommade, cast-gold brackets that fit discreetly onto the back of your teeth. As winner of Best Customer Service at the 2011 Sussex Business Awards, you can be assured you’ll be looked after every step of the way. Treatment even includes two years of supervision after you have finished wearing your braces. You’ll also receive customised fixed retainers to

ensure your teeth stay straight, so you can keep on smiling. A no obligation consultation with a specialist orthodontist is free of charge, so call today and take the first step towards a beautiful new smile. Total Orthodontics, 49 Lansdowne Place, Hove BN3 1HF, 01273 728333,

An urban oasis Kirsty Taylor from Uniquely Organic EcoSpa, Hove Time to put mind over matter With children going back to school, parents may be embracing the idea of more ‘me’ time this month. Others back from vacations may be ready to embark on changes about aspects of their lives they’ve been mulling over while away. Whatever your circumstances, the ability to enjoy all the areas in your life stems from having a positive mental attitude and, I believe, September is an excellent time of year for awakening mindfulness, learning new skills and taking new directions in life. All our treatments evoke calmness of mind and stillness of body, so having a massage, facial or ‘wraptual’ with us may be a good way to start anew.

Try your hand at massage In addition, at the EcoSpa we’ve developed some inspiring workshops to help you gain practical skills to enrich your lives this autumn. For a start, there are three fantastic self-development massage workshops. Introduction to Organic Massage teaches basic back, neck and shoulder massage techniques for you to practise on your family and friends. Pregnancy Massage is great for helping you (and your birthing partner) with relaxation and pain relief techniques during pregnancy and labour. Baby Massage is a wonderful experience for both you and your infant as it is soothing, calming and helps the bonding process between parents and child. It can also improve sleep patterns and ease teething discomfort, colic and other conditions. So, hooray, more sleep for you too! Then there’s Reiki, which is all about channelling energy to encourage natural healing. I’ll be teaching all the Reiki Attunements personally and I’m passionate about both organic healing and the chakras (energy centres of the body) so a chakra workshop will be included.

Personal Development Group Perhaps the jewel in the crown of the workshops is our new personal development group for anyone wanting to work towards spiritual and personal goals. Whether it’s a stressful relationship, a difficult work scenario or a block to your creativity, we will be sharing strategies to help you explore what you really want from life and how you can bring about change. This will include affirmations, healing techniques, Reiki, meditation and positive thinking, each month having a separate focus to work on and each individual hopefully being supported by the group. Email with ‘Explore Your True Potential’ in the subject line to be sent more details. Could it be time for a new you?

MONSTER FUN THE EXTREME STUNT SHOW, Brighton Racecourse, 29 August 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪


efore we start, here’s a disclaimer: I know as much about motor vehicles as I do astrophysics or cricket. As a non-driver my analysis of things on wheels is limited to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’. With that in mind, I watched the stunt-types doing dangerous things. The smell of petrol was overwhelming as the touring Extreme Stunt Show, a showcase for skilled stunt drivers, rumbled into action with a motorbike-mounted ring announcer stirring the family audience up with all sorts of holiday camp banter. The night started slowly with what were, conversely, probably the team’s most skilful feats; a set of balancing acts involving bikes, buggies, cars and jeeps tottering around on two, sometimes one, wheel. Impressive though they were, a typically indifferent Brighton crowd (seriously, I thought it was just indie music gigs where this happened) seemed relatively unimpressed. Still, with a soundtrack from The Prodigy, Foo Fighters and Wolfmother, once the real rock-out action took off, this event was sometimes breathtaking. Car crashes seemingly aimed at trying to actually kill the driver, a human torch (though sadly no human cannonball) and some mahusive monster trucks were all impressive, though the real fireworks came from the spectacular UKFMX bike team. With sky-high leaps of faith and riders barely cheating death, more of this sort of melodrama would have elevated this relatively short show and really driven (sorry) home the glory this team achieves on a daily basis. Nick Aldwinckle

halted after the first song. CUD remained as bouncy as they were 20 years ago and the friendly atmosphere of the day was completed by The Wedding Present performing their blistering album Seamonsters in full. Concorde 2, 25 August 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ Steve Clements


David Gedge’s fourth annual one-day festival promised and delivered a cornucopia of delights, with his band mates featuring in various incarnations throughout the day and the man himself kicking things off with an excellent set of dreamy pop with Cinerama. There was a saw orchestra, Turkish pop and L.A. grunge before Martin Rossiter’s devastating set caused a roadblock in the bar that was temporarily


To see an excellent tribute act like this was the chance to experience for the first time (or re-live) the ‘70s and ‘80s hits that ELO are renowned for. Jeff Lynne sound-alike Andy Louis is a fantastic lead, ably supported by guitar, bass guitar and – the signature to ELO’s sound – keyboard and cellos. Andy’s voice on ballads was excellent, ‘Latitude 88 North’ – a lesser known ELO track – a perfect example of this. The music in

When JLS appeared, they erupted through the stage like an exploding volcano to the screams of hundreds of young fans. They certainly didn’t disappoint, teaching us their dance moves and ensuring the crowd knew their lines for the audience participation sing-a-long. Despite the pouring rain, they carried on

regardless like the true professionals they are. It was obvious by the two encores and screams of “more, more, more” that the young fans would have happily danced and sung along with them in the rain all night. An enjoyable evening in a family friendly atmosphere. Sussex County Cricket Ground, Hove 27 August 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ Claire Peerless


Simmering creepiness was the order of the day with this pot boiler thriller (based on Stephen King’s book). After crashing his car in the Colorado outback, novelist Paul Sheldon is saved by local uber-fan Annie Wilkes who is unfortunately pure Bluegrass psychotic inbred and her convalescing/nursing technique is borderline Munchausen’s syndromeby-proxy. Paul is ultimately forced to write another part of his Misery series to secure his escape. The set was intelligently conceived, its angular door frames created an appropriate film noir atmosphere at times, and the two actors (Rebecca Wheatley and Philip Bulcock) built the tension well. However for me it was all let down by some hammy direction for the climax. A shame but still worth a night out. Connaught Theatre, Worthing, 28 August 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ Lee Stevensr

this will lead to greater involvement from those in and around Brighton. Brighton was once the number one pre-West End venue, would you like that status to return? Yes, and I believe over the next year you will see several exciting new ventures start in Brighton, which I believe will become a growing trend. And audiences from across the South will hopefully flock, too.

We talked to Howard Panter about Ambassador Theatre Group’s new Theatre Royal Brighton Productions

Is it difficult to find plays that will work well across all of your theatres on a national tour? It can be, but essentially good drama, quality and great entertainment hopefully work in all the great cities in the UK.


As a group ATG owns some of the most beautiful theatres in the UK, is Theatre Royal Brighton the jewel in your crown? It’s certainly right up there. Actors love it and so do I.

hy did you choose Brighton to create Theatre Royal Brighton Productions (TRBP), a new production wing for your already large and successful company? Three main reasons: Brighton is a truly creative city. The Theatre itself is one of the very best theatres for audiences and actors alike. With productions of the highest quality, Brighton has always attracted audiences from a wide catchment. You initially plan to produce three plays from Brighton’s Theatre Royal, will that increase with time? Three plays a year is our current plan, but you never know, it depends on how our success continues to grow. You plan to stage classic drama alongside less well known works. How will you decide which plays you tackle? Christopher Luscombe, Maria Aitken and Philip Franks suggest projects, we discuss them and hopefully together come up with plays that will excite and entertain our audiences. You have put together an illustrious group; Christopher Luscombe, Maria Aitken and Philip Franks, to head up the new company. How did you choose them? I approached Christopher first and together we thought of Maria and Philip. And thank goodness they said yes. What special elements does Brighton add to the mix? We will be doing workshops with Brighton based actors to explore a wide range of plays. We will also have lots of Q&As with our casts and hope to have rehearsed readings of plays for audiences and us. Brighton has a strong creative community and a large number of professional actors. Will you be able to involve them in the new company? Yes. Christopher has already started with a series of meetings and correspondence with the great creative community in Brighton. We hope

As CEO and Artistic Director do you suffer personal conflict when trying to balance artistic endeavour with financial constraints, or do you believe that budgetary constraints can lead to sharper creative decisions? It’s certainly complex, but in the end if we create wonderful nights out for the audience, that tends to do the trick. Is TRBP a one off project or can other regional theatres in your company look forward to developing new creative work? We are working in four other cities to develop new musicals. But Brighton is the only regional city where we are focused on new, exciting drama productions. The first production from TRBP was a neglected Pinero comedy, Dandy Dick, that received great reviews, both for the cast and for the quality of the production. You must have been pleased? Delighted, thank you. I think it’s fair to say the audience experienced a quality of production that was as high as anywhere in the Country. The next is Blue/Orange, a modern play that was highly acclaimed when it was first staged. Does this choice reflect your intended balance of programming? Yes, absolutely. The best drama is what Chris is after. Be it contemporary or a forgotten classic. In Dandy Dick you had Patricia Hodge and Nicholas Le Provost, in Blue/Orange it’s Robert Bathurst with two bright new talents. Has it been easy casting for the new company? Robert loved Blue/Orange. So that was a great start. The other two great actors were also quickly drawn to this terrific psychological thriller. With three major creative talents steering the company under you there must be a lot of ideas floating around. How do you decided which ones to do? Yes, thankfully there are many good ideas. In the end Christopher leads, but it’s hopefully with everyone’s consent. And with so many ideas, can you reveal any future projects that you personally would like to see in production? Please watch this space. Lots of excitement hopefully to come. So in year one, three plays. Year two... year three... ? Too soon to confirm, but there are lots of great projects under discussion. follow me on twitter

Concorde 2, Wed 5 Sept, 7pm, SOLD OUT MUSIC: LOS ALBERTOS Looks like this bunch are taking an extended break from gigging after nearly ten years of tearing up dance floors with their contemporary fusion of ska, funk, punk and dance beats. It's been an incredible journey for one of Brighton's most favoured bands, and this last chance to see them in their natural environment (a pub, in Brighton) should be emotional as well as jolly good fun. Support from The Black Fields. Blind Tiger Club, Fri 7 Sept, free before 9pm, £3 after MUSIC: MARK EITZEL Back in the late 80s and 90s with American Music Club, Eitzel and co crafted some of the most intense and fragile music known to man; Eitzel's hugely depressing lyrics somehow made palatable by his heartfelt dramatics on stage. This was a man who, on stage, seemed to be wringing out every last bit of his soul. A class act. Palmeira, Sat 8 Sept, 8pm, £12


ith just a guitar named Merlin, Apples & Eve began in the shape of Eva Howells, the first fruits of which have now developed into a full four-piece band incorporating double bass, accordion, violin and drums. Their first official release is due this month in the shape of the Dionysus EP, produced by Oyster Band and Levellers producer Al Scott, and there'll be a special launch here in Brighton as well as London. "It started two years ago, when Eva was doing it herself, and then I joined on drums and Graeme (Ross) followed on double bass,” says Fran. But it was only last spring that the band nearly went on hiatus, as the thought of further education loomed for Eva. "I was thinking of going to university, but decided against it in the end... there will always be another chance, although last year was the last time before they hiked up the fees," says Eva. "We love doing this, we put so much into it, people don't realise how much time is put into this!" Musically, they incorporate gypsy with folk, blues, a little bit of reggae, plus the odd moment of vocal harmonising. It's generally laid back, with an edge that threatens to erupt anytime, but ultimately keeping a lid on the musical tension that the band have developed. Howell's versatile voice and beguiling stage presence is fast winning fans in numbers, despite the fact they still only gig occasionally as they continue to find a settled band line-up. "I write the songs," says Eva. "I play guitar, accordion and piano which is my main instrument, but I don't use it for the band. My Dad has always done a lot of stuff – he gave me my first guitar on my 16th birthday; before that I kept running upstairs, borrowing his, and then sneaking it back. I think he worked that out so he gave it to me. It's called Merlin, the other guitar I have is called Phoenix.” The title track of the EP is a play on the Greek God. "He was all about ecstasy, womanising... it's about how some men should keep their hands to themselves! Sadly, all the songs on the EP are about men,” smiles Eva. Support for their Brighton gig is courtesy of Luke Hyttner & The Colour Club. The EP is available via their website and then digitally on 16 September.

Everything Flows

Elizabeth Jardine

ART: NAKED EYE SUMMER EXHIBITION Five contemporary artists are on display including Brighton based artist Elizabeth Jardine, whose paintings and papier mache sculptures explore our connection with the natural world; abstract artist David Armitage; Bobby Boud; Alaistair Loxton and Frances Bloomfield. Naked Eye, 5 Farm Mews, Brighton, 01273 204800, Until 20 Sept ART: EVERYTHING FLOWS A group exhibition of four newly commissioned film and video works that consider the state of being 'in the zone' in relation to sporting excellence. De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-sea, 01424 229111, Until 16 Sept  FILM: ANNA KARENINA (TBC)

Dir: Joe Wright Joe Wright certainly has favourite actresses, Keira Knightley being one of his most popular. Having directed her previously in Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, the pair reconnect for yet another period drama. This time Ms Knightley is the eponymous heroine of Tolstoy’s 19th century epic, an aristocratic woman both attracted and repelled by the world in which she lives, and in danger of falling foul of the very rules she observes. Released Fri 7 Sept, Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

FILM: DREDD 3D (TBC) Director: Pete Travis


fter Sylvester Stallone’s triumph of ego for the comic book geek in the mid 1990s (the helmet should never come off, Judge Dredd!), there was a bit of apprehension regarding what this latest interpretation would deliver. Never fear, we live in a cinematic world now adoring of graphic novel beginnings, and reasonably respectful of the rules our heroes have declared to abide by. So don’t expect to see much of Karl Urban’s face. Written by Alex Garland and directed by our very own Brit Pete Travis (previous credits include Omagh, Vantage Point and Endgame – as well as Cold Feet), this is set in 2000AD’s futuristic metropolis filled with ‘Judges’, assigned to be judge, jury and executioner to criminals. One such law enforcer, Judge Dredd, finds himself out with a trainee, a certain Judge Anderson (Olivia Thirlby) who avid readers of the books will be familiar with, battling against dealers of a new and dangerous drug ‘Slo-Mo’. All at breakneck speed, the pair cross words – and any other weapon they can lay their hands on – with the foul reprobates. Released Friday 7 September, Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

STARS With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

You may have to process a large amount of information in the work place. It’s come at a good time though as you’re able to retain and handle large concepts. Don’t over promise the world as even you are subject to a mere 24-hour day.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

There’s a change of pace, as your ruler takes a break from emotionally draining thoughts and into a far more upbeat and enjoyable home life. So get back in touch with relatives, dramatic though it may be you can enjoy a celebratory atmosphere.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

You’ll be meeting the right kind of people this week, even though you might prefer to stay at home, there is a lot that can be achieved through combining efforts while co-operation comes easy and is a lot of fun too. Your focus is razor sharp.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

A financial opportunity is coming so hang in there. It’s easy to convince yourself about the reality of reality while the planet of Jupiter opens up your subconscious making you more gullible. You don’t have to accept anything at face value.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

Your self-value increases, and as it does, so does your ability to be kinder and more compassionate towards others. Venus brings with it a beautifying aura, so enjoy taking timeouts to groom, relax, enjoy fine foods and good living.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

Being a natural born lyricist and writer, there are no ends to the benefits that just such talents can produce. Now, as your ruler Mercury gives you added confidence as it teams up with the glorious Sun, you are able to make your voice heard.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

Make time for your self to rest. Don’t let the obscurity of life’s obligations bring you to a sense of feeling lost. A higher force guides you, while it’s largely more unconscious and therefore may not make perfect sense to you now, it soon will.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

You are now getting into the swing of things with an energising influence pushing you to break out of self imposing restrictions and express yourself honestly and if necessary, forcefully. Use this energy in pursuit of creativity and you can achieve a lot.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

You’ll get the option to spend more time outside of the usual social mill and enjoy your own space. Pursuing your own dreams is paramount. If you want the support of others you may have to adopt a slightly more compassionate approach.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

While you are keen to explore and make more positive steps to broaden your horizon, there are also a large number of other less exciting duties, which may require more of your attention than you would like. Balance is key; you simply must make time for both.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

You may notice you’re able to find the middle ground and compromise, as the calming quality of Venus is dispelling any negativity from your house of partnership. Joint finances need sorting out as hobbies or recreational pursuits could prove a strain.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

Sometimes it’s all too easy to be critical of others or to under value our own achievements, both of which are mere imbalances. The synchronicity is notably back already, with special friendships being made at work and your desire to explore new horizons.

Wednesday 5 Mrs Biggs ITV1, 9pm Sheridan Smith stars in this five part drama about the woman who married Ronnie Biggs. Doesn’t start off too well when Ronnie forces young Charmian to steal from her employers to fund their elopement. Young love, eh? She begs him to go straight after that. Do you reckon he will? Maybe he’s just train spotting. Maybe.

Dallas Channel Five, 9pm Arguably the biggest soap of the ‘80s is back, and when the Ewings say it’s all about family there’s not quite the same loyalty as you’d find on Albert Square. The blockbuster series hits the ground running as the clan gathers for Christopher’s wedding – oh, and Bobby’s selling Southfork. No!!!

Celebrity Bedlam E4, 10pm Surreal pranks on those that actually want the attention – that’d be celebrities then. Hosted by comedian Lee Kern this week he’s contemplating the end of the world and whether it coincides with the age of celebrity. He convinces a celeb that he’s a dog seeking adoption, and presents the worst celeb calender ever.
