Wedding Special



Happily ever after The start of your own fairy tale begins with your dream wedding day


he news of Hollywood A-listers Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s secret wedding earlier this month surprised us all. How had they managed to keep their nuptials under wraps? Escaping the buzz of Hollywood and the paparazzi for seclusion in South Carolina made it possible. It’s not just Hollywood celebrities who are at it: more of us are choosing low-key affairs, whether at home or abroad. With a small number of guests, you can spend money on the travel and accommodation, making it your dream wedding in a dream setting. If you like the idea of getting married on a paradise island, then read Natasha Hutchinson’s piece on how to go about getting hitched abroad. She did it, and loved every minute. John Proctor Travel also has some expert suggestions for possible honeymoon destinations. Back here in the UK, Civil Partnerships are on the rise, and Andrew Kay talks us through his own special day and the things that made it perfect. If a big wedding here in the UK is what you’ve always dreamed of, here you will

find everything you need for planning your big day. Start with the checklist below – every couple needs it – and tick off as you complete things. Your wedding day is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, day of your life. Set the date and budget wisely. Nobody wants to start married life with a huge debt hanging over them. Your dream wedding is possible, whatever your budget. Utilise friends and family where you can: whether it’s for travel, making the cake or filming the big day itself. Head to a wedding fair for inspiration and to meet contacts. You don’t need to book anything on the day, but there are normally great savings to be made if you do. Ultimately, these fairs will help you decide on what you really want. From flowers and balloons to stationery and favours, your day should have you and your partner’s mark all over it. Across these pages, you will find everything to help you plan your dream wedding. From local venues to bridal wear, you will find ideas to make your wedding day perfect.

All the best products to leave brides-to-be glowing & radiant on their big day

Jane Iredale Smooth Affair™ Facial Primer & Brightener, £35, for stockists: 020 8450 7111, 1 This brand new product from Jane Iredale will leave you looking radiant on your

big day thanks to the grapefruit extract (which makes it smell great too!). Skin is left glowing with wrinkles and pores reduced. Wear alone or with a foundation for the perfect wedding-day glow. Sassoon Rich Clean Shampoo, Vidal Sassoon, £tbc, available from 2 professional salons, It’s important to start a hair care regime in the build-up to your big day (the

same goes for skin care products!). For dry and damaged hair, restore its condition, movement and shine with regular use of this professional shampoo. Hair is cleansed and replenished, leaving locks as luscious as Rapunzel’s. Ombre 16” clip-in extensions by Hairdo, £49, 3 The ombre look is here to stay but if you are not keen on experimenting with your natural hair colour, then Hairdo’s new clip-in ombre hair extensions

are the answer. The 16” clip-in extensions are Tru2Life fibre and can withstand heat of up to 350°F. Available in six salon-inspired tones. Ombre hair without the commitment? We love! No Sun Tanner, Perricone MD, £54, 4 Nobody wants a streaky, orange tan on their big day. The No Sun Tanner is a multi-tasking, all over self-tanner that nourishes the skin with pro-Vitamin D while promoting a gorgeous, natural looking tan, all within three to seven days so no need to panic! Start early and gradually build up to your perfect tan.

Transformulas EyeLift Gel, £29.95, 5 Beauty without surgery is the way forward, and we are simply loving the more cost-effective and non-invasive beauty treatments on the market. Case in point: Transformulas. These anti-ageing products are the brainchild of a beauty fanatic who is afraid of needles! The EyeLifting gel absorbs quickly to repair signs of ageing around the delicate eye area. It cools and calms the skin for a refreshing sensation.

Transformulas Professional White ‘StainLess’ Teeth Whitener, £36.95, 8 Get white teeth in just seven days with this 60-second treatment which

dramatically reduces stains caused by eating and drinking.The liquid formula has a refreshing cool mint fragrance too.

f you are contemplating a destination wedding – I have one thing to say to you – DO IT! I married my husband in Northern Cyprus in August and it was the most incredible experience. We knew very early in the planning stages of our wedding that we didn’t want anything too formal, or traditional. Our budget definitely did not stretch to a large do, so we considered getting married abroad as a way to keep the numbers down. Luckily, our tastes are very similar: we both agreed we wanted somewhere hot with guaranteed sunshine (but not too far away as we needed to keep travel costs down), beautiful scenery, not too commercial/touristy, and a wedding that was small and intimate, relaxed and informal. We settled on a small village in Kyrenia in Northern Cyprus after a recommendation from a friend, with the ceremony taking place in front of 18 family and friends in the ruins of the stunning Bellapais Abbey, high in the mountains with the most amazing views. This was followed by a champagne reception and an evening meal at the Ambiance seafront restaurant. The cost of the wedding was a fraction of what it would have been in the UK, and you’d struggle to find a more beautiful setting. We spent a total of £10,000 which covered absolutely everything including the wedding itself, travel, accommodation and our honeymoon in Ibiza! The best thing about getting married abroad? As it’s combined with a holiday you get to spend more time with family and friends. With a traditional wedding in the UK, you have the one day, and then it’s over, but we had a whole week with our loved ones with the wedding take place in the middle. We didn’t want to go down the resort wedding package route, preferring to source things separately. We hired a wedding planner, who we found on the internet, and she helped us with sourcing florists, photographer, hairdresser, and booking venues. She absolutely took the stress and hassle out of the planning – everything was so easy and even on the day she stayed throughout the whole service and reception, just in case we needed her. It really is worth using a wedding planner – you will not regret it! The only thing we flew to Cyprus with us was the wedding dress and suit which were taken on as hand luggage. It was flagged up to the airline and they took extra care and attention with them. Everything else was sorted out at the other end by the wedding planner. It is worth noting that each country has different legal requirements for getting married – we found the Town Hall in Brighton to be hugely helpful with explaining what was needed to make it a legally-binding ceremony. There are a few things to keep in mind if you do choose to get hitched abroad – firstly, the sun! We wanted somewhere hot, and it was extremely hot! It’s quite typical for Cyprus/Greece to reach the low/mid 40s in August. I was paranoid about having sunburn/strap marks in the wedding photos so took it easy in the sun prior to the wedding. I also opted for a light silk dress rather than anything too heavy. We also decided to have a late ceremony – starting at 5pm, so as to avoid the hottest part of the day. The day itself was absolutely perfect; we wouldn’t have changed a single thing. We had the most wonderful time, and all of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

W|tÅÉÇwá 9 ÑxtÜÄá Bespoke treatment at Leonie Claire Bridal Boutique on Brighton’s Upper North Street, for a one-of-a-kind indulgent bridal shopping experience


ituated in the heart of the pretty Montpelier area of central Brighton, Leonie Claire Bridal Boutique is a little slice of big city style by the sea. Now in its sixth year of finding the perfect gown for Sussex brides, Leonie Claire has a reputation for showcasing the very best British and international designer collections. Focusing solely on the bride, the boutique on Upper North Street stocks seven designer labels, making a collection of around 60 stunning gowns with complementing accessories. Leonie has stocked Suzanne Neville gowns since the very beginning. Famous for her incredible corsetry and classic cut, Suzanne is the queen of British bridal design. Her simple, elegant lines combined with the most beautiful quality silk and lace make her gowns second to none. Once you have tried a Suzanne Neville corset there is no other comparison. David Fielden bridal gowns are cutting edge and lead the way in bridal fashion. He cuts gowns in a quirky and yet stylish way using unconventional fabrics and embellishment. His collection for 2013 is his strongest yet, with laser cut flowers, silver lace appliques and soft draping fabrics. Claire Pettibone bridal gowns are simply divine. Claire designs all of

her own materials using layering, embroidery and applique, which makes her range delicate, pretty and feminine. Her current collection, Beau Monde, has a strong French influence and has just launched at Leonie Claire. Fine French prints, Chantilly lace and beautiful soft linen combine to make for a soft and individual collection. Leonie is incredibly proud to announce that the Alice Temperley bridal collection is coming to the boutique. On Thursday 27 September Leonie will be hosting a fabulous launch party with a catwalk show on Upper North Street. This will be followed by a two day trunk show of the Beatrice Collection, giving brides the perfect opportunity to try on this stunning range. As the exclusive Sussex stockist of this iconic label, Leonie will be welcoming it in style. The Raimon Bundo collection is also a new and exciting addition at Leonie Claire. One of the biggest and most established bridal companies in Spain, Raimon Bundo is a family run company that has been designing and making gowns for over 40 years. Leonie fell under their spell when she viewed the collection in May, and it is arriving at the boutique at the end of September. Justin Alexander is another

collection Leonie has showcased since the boutique opened in 2006. Tony, the head designer, came from a lingerie design background so the fit of the bodices is just perfect. If a bride is looking for lace, then look no further. Justin Alexander uses beautiful lace, raw silk and Swarovski crystals to create a collection of gowns that include sleeves, high necklines, removable boleros and detachable trains. Leonie launched her own label in November last year to cater for the bride who is searching for a more relaxed style of gown, but still wants to feel like a bride. Using heavy silk crepes, satin chiffons and beautiful lace, Leonie’s signature has a distinctly vintage feel. With options of ivory, pale champagne and dusty silver the collection is warm, sexy and incredibly stylish. Leonie Claire gowns are all fully made to measure in house so there is no additional alterations charge. They are completely exclusive to her boutique, and something incredibly special. With such a diverse designer bridal collection, it only makes sense that Leonie has chosen the most stunning accessories to complement the range. The boutique stocks shoes by Benjamin Adams and Rachel Simpson, giving the bride a choice between glitz and glamour or vintage prettiness. Headdress designers include Polly Edwards, House of Istria and Stephanie Brown. Polly Edwards creates the most beautiful asymmetric tiaras and combs using Swarovski crystals and pearls. House of Istria has a gorgeous boho feel, with pieces in lace applique and soft feathers. Stephanie Brown head pieces are striking, geometric and sparkle like nothing on earth. Polly Edwards and Stephanie Brown also design incredible jewellery, so if you don’t want a head piece but would love some statement earrings Leonie has an amazing selection to choose from. Not every bride wants a veil, that is until they try one on! Leonie’s collection comes from another British designer, Richard Designs. From lace or ribbon edging to plain soft tulle, Leonie’s range includes both short and long styles, giving brides the option to try on a really good variety to find the perfect veil to complement their gown. We all hope for sunshine on the day but in the UK this is not always going to happen, so Leonie has a selection of feather or lace boleros or handknitted cardi shrugs, too. Not to mention lovely, large ivory umbrellas, just in case. Leonie Claire works by appointment only to ensure that a bride will have a dedicated bridal consultant and fitting room. Guests are greeted with refreshments and given an hour and a half to try on a wonderful selection of gowns. A bride can celebrate finding the perfect gown with a glass of bubbly, too. With an in-house sewing workroom and a highly skilled team of seamstresses, a bride can feel safe in the knowledge that she can choose from the very finest gowns and receive the most exceptional service, all the way through her journey.

Jeremy Hoye


eremy Hoye is one of the UK’s leading contemporary bespoke jewellers and is renowned for his modern bridal pieces. Jeremy has designed and created his wedding collections for thousands of brides-to-be; his expertise from working within the industry over the last 20 years means he is an expert at making those all-important decisions. Jeremy is well known for designing pieces with an eclectic twist for those looking for distinctive jewellery that stands out from the crowd. His ability to capture the essence of the traditional solitaire while keeping within his signature contemporary edge allows him to create timeless collections that feature not only solitaires, but also flush and pave set bands. Working in 18ct rose gold, white gold and platinum, all of his designs are made in his on site workshop.  Jeremy has led the way in incorporating more unusual stones in engagement and wedding rings, to create beautiful designs that are truly unique, with more and more of a demand for black diamonds, sapphires and rubies etc. A prime example of this is his beautiful, surreal ‘Triffid’ collection, a leftfield engagement/wedding band collection which is also available as a silver fashion range. Inspired by crystallised rocks, and using black, white and blue diamonds in 18ct and platinum pieces gives a dramatic yet wearable feel with the distinctive Hoye look.  The Tulip collection is also extremely popular – a contemporary classic. Delicate tulip petals hold the diamond in this simple yet perfect design, easy to wear with a choice of four different style wedding bands to match – giving you the option to create the perfect combination for your individual style. This is jewellery design that doesn’t date and made to be treasured forever.  Jeremy Hoye, 22a Ship Street Brighton, BN1 1AD, 01273 777207,

Sussex County Cricket Ground


he delightful PROBIZ County Ground, Hove, has been synonymous with first-class cricket for over 150 years. More recently however, it is recognised as one of the leading venues in Sussex for parties, celebrations and particularly weddings. Sussex CCC is licensed for wedding ceremonies and can offer a range of onsite venues for your special day. The Boundary Rooms offer a flexible, modern venue complete with patio doors and decking which complement your celebration with a complete alfresco experience. The Spen Cama Pavilion boasts a more traditional setting for a wedding, with both the Long Room and the Dining Room having recently been fully refurbished and extended. It also offers superb floor to ceiling views of the pitch, washed with natural daylight. The brand new kitchen facilities in the Pavilion add to the notion that the venue is gaining a fast-growing reputation for top quality food and service, which has contributed to last year’s nomination for the Brighton & Hove Business Awards in the category of ‘Best Place to Entertain Your Clients’. This year has been a particularly busy one for weddings with 15 taking place, and even the odd cricket match doesn’t mean that you can’t have the date you have set your heart on with the two most recent weddings both taking place on match days. Jonathan and Danielle Step chose Saturday 1 September and when Sussex qualified for a home semi-final on the very same day Jonathan was delighted. The happy couple were married in The Boundary Rooms on Saturday afternoon at 3pm before making their way across to The Spen Cama Pavilion to enjoy their Wedding

Breakfast in The Dining Room. They then held the evening reception in the historic Long Room in the Pavilion later in the evening. Danielle Step said of the venue: “I would say we chose the cricket ground because we wanted a more unique venue than a hotel or registry office, and Jonathan loves sports and always follows the cricket. After finding the cricket ground on the list of approved venues and having a tour around the ground we knew we had found our ideal wedding venue. “We were looking forward to being able to get married so close to the pitch and our guests being able to enjoy the feeling of being at a cricket ground as many of them had never been. I know quite a few of our guests were excited to hear there would be a cricket match on at the same time and I think it makes our wedding truly unique! “We didn’t have to make any drastic changes, the staff at the Club have gone out of their way to ensure our wedding was as close as we imagined it to be”. Sadly though, on the day Sussex lost out to Hampshire!  An added bonus of this city centre based venue is the ample and free on-site car parking. All this contributes to a truly unique venue for your unique occasion. Sussex County Cricket Ground, The PROBIZ County Ground, Eaton Road, Hove, BN3 3AN, 0844 264 0202,

Honeymoon hot spots John Proctor Travel’s top five destinations for a honeymoon to remember


ow do you choose where to go for a unique trip that will be the ideal getaway for your honeymoon? Of course, you want somewhere romantic, peaceful, idyllic... but how about the experience? A great holiday should make for great memories and your honeymoon for the best of them all. So, unless you’re set on visiting the Maldives or getting married in Vegas, here are our top five experience destinations for a honeymoon to remember. Panama: If you crave a tropical beach, try Panama’s Caribbean coastline for white sand archipelagos, $2 Pina Coladas, secluded palm islands and rich indigenous culture. The Bocas del Toro and San Blas Island groups are both stunning with plenty of sunset bars and romantic hideaways. Both regions lie a short plane transfer from Panama City. To reach San Blas you can also take a Jeep through the rainforest and a short lancha boat journey to reach the autonomous, Kuna territory of palm-fringed isles. For Bocas, take the highway and a speedboat for a choice of lonely beaches and Caribbean cocktails. British Columbia: For wildlife and the great outdoors Canada’s British Columbia provides the essential ingredients with awe-inspiring scenery, forest walks to hidden waterfalls and close encounters with some of nature’s most majestic creatures. The hub of Vancouver is a city for everyone with its beaches, parks, restaurants and entertainment and then ride the daily helicopter flight to



Vancouver Island and get lost at a remote luxury cabin in the wilderness. Italy: For classical architecture, incredible art, stunning coastlines and private boat rides to dramatic coves consider Rome and the Amalfi Coast. Only a couple of hours transfer from Rome to Sorrento means a perfect match for a twin-centre. The scenery of this unforgettable region is unrivalled; along the coast road as it clings to the cliffs, winding along to picturesque Positano; or from the boats that ply their way to Capri – one of the Mediterranean’s true jewels. Sri Lanka: Head to Unawatuna Bay in Sri Lanka for a no-frills village resort with intimate local beach restaurants and sunsets at the Buddhist stupa on the headland. Not far away some great excursions include the Pinnawala Elephant orphanage, the beautiful botanical gardens of Kandy and the tea plantations of the highlands. Brazil: Brazil is known for its beaches and has so many to chose from, but the Bahia region around the beautiful city of Salvador is one of the best. Incredible fruits juices, seafood and coconut-infused cooking, plus fresh lobster served on the beach with Samba sounds and street capoeira. You can be guaranteed it won’t be a dull week by the pool in Bahia. John Proctor Travel, 4 Church Street Brighton, East Sussex BN1 1UJ 01273 608351 follow us on twitter

Andrew Kay recalls his own civil ceremony


etting civilly partnered was a big but easy decision. Much as we still crave true equality we also wanted to make a commitment to each other before our family and friends. It may not be married in a legal sense but it is a marriage, husband and husband. We knew we wanted to do things our very own way and on a pretty tight budget, so we chose the big room at the Town Hall with the delightful Trevor Love, prosecco outside and a London bus to take our party of close friends and family for a delicious lunch at L’Eglise. We went to L’Eglise, said we liked their standard lunch menu, (no fancy wedding special for us) and house wine. It was perfect, exactly what we wanted, and at a price we could afford. The next day we had a party at Latest Musicbar. Being a control freak when it comes to food I was very much in charge of catering. We had a picnic of Sussex cheeses, Brampton’s sausages, good bread, WJ King beers, homemade picklesand a fabulous cake from Terre à Terre. Everything went to plan, and everyone had a good time, with plenty to eat and to drink. We look

back on our day with a smile, knowing that by thinking outside the box and not being led down expensive routes, we got the wedding we always wanted – and without going into debt. Try not to start married life with a whopping overdraft; for us, a sensible budget meant we started our marriage without that pressure.

Out for an award Helen Jones has been involved with LGBT mental health charity MindOut since it started and now its work is being recognised. Frank le Duc reports


elen Jones was working for the mental health charity Mind in Brighton and Hove when she embarked on a project with the Gay Switchboard – now known as the Brighton and Hove LGBT Switchboard. It involved looking at the mental health needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) community in the area. And it led to an application for funds from Comic Relief. She led the resulting project, MindOut, and said: “At the time we didn’t know what those needs might be but over the years it has snowballed in line with knowing more about those needs. And we are more known which has helped. When we became independent from Mind about 18 months ago, that’s when I became director as opposed to project manager.” Her chief executive-style role means more responsibility. Helen, 53, trained as a psychiatric nurse before coming to Brighton in 1984 to study for her degree in social anthropology at Sussex University. She has since also trained as a psychotherapist. Her skills have stood her in good stead as MindOut has grown. Now the charity has been recognised by the first National Diversity Awards with a shortlisting in the category for Best LGBT Community Group. At time of going to press, she and her staff were yet to find out if they have won. If MindOut wins, she said, “the award would be a fantastic acknowledgment of MindOut’s pioneering mental health work developed by and for LGBT people who have experience of mental health issues, as well as recognising how important mental health is in LGBT communities.” She added: “We are delighted to have been staff’s time. “Others need a shortlisted for this award as “Everyone who works lot more support,” Helen it’s a fantastic opportunity said.

Brighton Marina’s Kirsty Pollard on the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

7 days of headlines with phil mills


t’s been a packed time for news, with a police shooting, an E.coli scare and the city coming out top dog for caring for canines – and with the Lib Dems conference in town, it’s set to get even busier. Tragedy struck when a man holding a shotgun was shot by police after a domestic incident in Seaford. He was being treated in hospital in Brighton and police are describing it as attempted murder of police. Local councillor Dawn Barnet was pelted with eggs after asking travellers to move from Portslade Cricket Club, and more names are being added to the petition against a new permanent travellers’ site at Horsdean, Patcham.

Brighton & Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat on Toads Hole Valley


much-needed school, new business space and an ecology park are some of the ideas developers have come up with for how the area known as Toads Hole Valley might be developed. It was bought for development many years ago, but has remained a neglected piece of valuable land. The site currently does not belong to the people of the city – it’s privately owned and fenced off with no public access. The site could be developed in

any way, and new government rules have made it much easier for inappropriate or poor quality developments to be built.

E.coli warning, artwork brightens up the city, ultra-fast broadband bid & a unique ring bearer A warning about the potential risks of eating ‘rare’ burgers has been issued by the city council’s food safety team who have noticed a trend among some eateries to offer rare or medium beef burgers which, the experts say, pose a risk of E.coli contamination. The city is now officially the most popular place for people to visit with their dogs in Britain after a survey by dog food firm Cesar. Model and dog lover Jodi Kidd, Cllr Christopher Hawtree and animal welfare officer Maggi Hollands celebrated the award outside the Royal Pavilion. The old Astoria cinema has been brightened with the council erecting prints by the city’s famous artist and printmaker Janet Brooke, and Saltdean Lido is to get £130,000 for urgent repairs. The city, which took over the building recently, says so much work is needed it may not open for next summer. Cash confiscated from convicted loan sharks is being ploughed back into community projects voted for by city residents – the England Illegal Money Lending Team and the city council have joined forces to track down offenders and benefit community groups. Ultra-fast internet services came a step closer with the council bidding for £3.3m government funding for enhanced fibre optic connections and broadband wireless connections for buildings and outdoors on mobile devices in the city centre, parts of Hove, Kemp Town and university


areas in Lewes Road. They say it would create 1,000 jobs and 135 new small companies a year. Around £12.5m a year would be injected into the local economy and it would unlock £1.37m of private investment into the city’s digital infrastructure. Local digital firm Wired Sussex are helping with the bid and the city should hear back in the autumn. Jennifer and Alex Eichner celebrated their wedding in Sussex with Jennifer’s horse Max – he was the ring bearer, carrying the ring around his neck in a bag. Jennifer said: “Max has been in my life for 13 years... I couldn’t imagine getting married without him.” And finally, this week’s rant comes from Mrs Tina Robertson from Brighton: “TV stations should be made to put the date a programme was made in the opening credits – I watched a documentary on Diana the other day and was baffled when there was no mention of her death – the closing credits confirmed the programme had been made several years before the crash in Paris. I felt cheated – like I’d been duped. It's tantamount to fraud in my view.” What do you think? Email Which community projects get your vote for support?

Della says: “What a marvelous idea to combine the popular facilities of the Cineworld in an area where lots of other outlets can get involved.” Money raised will go towards the local fund which aims to raise £3.7million to build the Sussex Macmillan Cancer Support Centre opposite the Royal Sussex Hospital. The Sussex Macmillan Cancer Support Centre will be the first of its kind in the county to offer all round support for people affected by cancer in a calm, friendly and welcoming environment.

Should we call time? Stags and hens are big business but an economy built on drinking and partying comes at a price. The Chamber of Commerce is asking about the costs and benefits in a Big Debate. Frank le Duc reports


t night, the streets of Brighton become awash with alcohol-crazed hen and stag parties, clubbers and general yobbery, noisily rendering the late night and early morning city centre almost a no-go area for those who don’t want to join their revelry, and thereby damaging the city’s image.” That’s a point of view being heard increasingly often in Brighton and Hove. But so is the viewpoint that Brighton is the country’s seaside party capital, fun is in its blood and its night time festivity is core to the city’s image, reputation, culture and income. On Wednesday 26 September the Brighton and Hove Chamber of

Commerce will be ordinator of holding the next Brighton and “The recession in its series of Big Hove Street Debates: “This Pastors and an has seen a trend house believes independent for the ‘staycation’” candidate in the that Brighton’s night time election for post economy is of Police and tarnishing the city’s brand.” Crime Commissioner in November.

the bigissue Dispensary, who said: “Some feel that debating our night-time economy is a taboo that needs to be broken. As citizens, we are perhaps all troubled from time to time when we see so many gaggles of hens zigzagging across town at night, hear the dawn aftermath of 24-hour bar culture and then read of the clean-up bills and other repercussions. But don’t we also treat the revellers’ money as our city’s golden egg, to be preserved no matter what? “On the other hand, how much of this money really stays in the city? And how do short-term gains stack up against our long-term reputation as a business and tourist destination? Or isn’t this revelry and night-time tourism already our reputation? Isn’t this what the city sells its visitors? And is any fuss about the negative effects just over-hyped or over-conservative?” Julia Chanteray, president of the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce and owner of consultancy The Joy of Business, said: “I think this will be one of the most fascinating Big Debates we’ve held so far. It goes right to the heart of our city’s makeup, what sort of place we want to live

The arguments for and against the nighttime economy’s effect on our brand will be heartfelt and fascinating.” The debate takes place at City College in Pelham Street, Brighton.

Brighton was probably the first seaside resort in Britain and has long had a raffish reputation. It is the home of the dirty weekend. And it has long been a popular place to spend the pink pound. The rise of cheap holidays abroad in places like Benidorm put paid to the bucket and spade brigade spending the annual break in British seaside towns like Brighton. The conference trade, language schools and, more recently, the rise of city breaks have helped save the city from the economic woes that have afflicted places like Margate. The Brighton Festival and the city’s many other

festivals have also played their part in helping the city to remain an attractive destination. Brighton and Hove is part of a new organisation called the Coastal Communities Alliance which is trying to reverse the decline. No one believes that mass tourism will return; even the recession has seen a trend for the “staycation”. So politicians and business leaders are trying to find other ways to revive the economy of places. The alliance said that its priorities include identifying and tackling: • Current barriers to economic growth (physical infrastructure, skills and industry structure) • The threat of coastal inundation • The consequences of deprivation (health, neighbourhood and community cohesion and pressure on local services) • Managing and exploiting the tourism legacy • Lobbying and influencing on a national platform. But, in a case study, the alliance found that people living in Brighton and Hove had a worse profile for alcohol-related harm than the

national and regional averages. Compared with the population of England, above average numbers of men were dying from causes linked directly – and the same was true of hospital admissions attributable to drink. An above average number of women also needed hospital treatment for drink-related problems. Compared with regional averages, residents of Brighton and Hove have: • Greater alcohol-specific mortality, alcohol-attributable mortality and mortality from chronic liver disease • Been admitted to hospital more frequently due to alcohol-related harm or other alcohol-specific or alcohol-attributable reasons • Committed more alcohol-related crimes, including violent crimes and sexual offences • More frequently made alcohol-related claims for incapacity benefits among working-age people. To try to tackle this, Brighton and Hove City Council has worked with local health chiefs and the


licensing trade to look at the effects of the relaxed licensing laws brought in almost ten years ago. The council has introduced a cumulative impact area where it is harder to obtain a new licence. The criteria have been refined to make it easier for, say, a new theatre to open with a bar while restricting the number of places likely to sell alcohol to street drinkers. Any changes won’t happen overnight. Just as the seaside economy won’t suddenly revive where it has fallen into a state of stagnation. But the issues that affect Brighton and resorts such as Blackpool and Scarborough are being discussed beyond the city. And where there are success stories, politicians, health chiefs and businesses are trying to learn the lessons. The chamber of commerce’s Big Debate will provide an opportune moment to check whether we’re selling the right measure to the right people and to work out whether the glass is half empty or half full. One thing’s for sure – we’re not going to call time just yet. ■



“The growth of alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour in areas such as West Street and St James’s Street can make the city centre a very unattractive destination for residents and visitors alike. Quite simply, aspects of the night-time economy threaten the economy of Brighton, including other parts of the night-time economy which are essential for the economic well-being of the city. “Huge amounts have been invested into making Brighton and Hove a destination of choice. The city is vibrant, the range of attractions and events is unparalleled compared to any point in its history and we are proud of the inclusive culture that exists for residents and visitors alike. “Yet in spite of the best endeavours of many (the city council, the tourist industry, traders, etc) to see a diversity of facilities and attractions – theatre, restaurants, street performers and community events – these efforts are being undermined by a culture of drunkenness and extreme drunkenness. “One of the more extreme examples are so called “party houses”. These are houses that are turned over to a dozen or more visitors on hen and stag weekends, or who just want “to party” in a manner that would not be tolerated in hotels and B&Bs. They facilitate the “front-loading” of alcohol even before these visitors descend on the town centre where their behaviour is often not conducive for others (guests staying in hotels, families out for dinner, theatre goers, etc). “If you have the misfortune to live in the street with a “party house”, your weekends will have turned into a living hell. “The spending power of those on alcohol-fuelled weekend breaks is limited. They are focused on alcohol outlets that encourage and facilitate further drinking. Having lived in the town centre for many years, and having represented Regency Ward on the old Brighton Borough Council, I now actively avoid going into the centre of Brighton after 8pm on a Friday or Saturday evening. My spending power is thus denied those restaurants and facilities that might otherwise have benefited from it. “For a year in the 1980s I chaired the Licensing Committee on Brighton Borough Council. That year, because of close co-operation between the council, Sussex Police and licensees, we were able to regulate the night-time economy in such a way that incidents of violence were clamped down on. Licensees who failed to co-operate risked having their public entertainment licences revoked. The result was that on New Year’s Eve 1986, there was not a single arrest for violence or drunken disorder in Brighton. “Unless we ensure that the night time economy is robustly managed, the image of the city will become tarnished at great cost to businesses and residents alike.”

“I will be seconding the argument against the motion that Brighton’s night-time economy is tarnishing the city’s brand. I am a late-ish convert to the view I now hold. I have come to this in part as a result of being the coordinator for the Street Pastors in Brighton and Hove. “The night-time economy in our city is not something that has been planned by anyone and is a reflection of crude market forces in the drinking and dancing culture and the paralysed planning processes of the past. My own view is that markets need some level of regulation and while I am pleased that there are now controls in place to limit the number of establishments in the areas of greatest impact, this has come very late in the day. We are now in a period where the worst excesses of this market should be behind us and I would certainly welcome a period of market correction if that can be achieved. “Nevertheless our city sees many benefits from the night-time economy in terms of jobs, business profits and the spend by visitors who come into the city because of the night life but also visit our shops and stay in our hotels. “My contention is that the tarnish referred to in the motion, comes as a result of a failure to maintain and care for a forgotten gem. The way to repolish this gem is for residents to reclaim our streets, not in a way that excludes those who come to party, but rather to share and rebalance the use of the space that has become saturated with clubs and pubs. “The appearance of Street Pastors (about 20 individuals, mostly over 55 and some closer to their 80th birthdays) going out four at a time has made a distinct difference to the tone of the streets and while we have some training and simple uniforms on our side, it is our age and our care for the visitors that has helped to reduce violent crime on our streets. “If others joined us in our quest to welcome visitors and our own residents just by taking strolls down West Street and up East Street, greeting people they meet with a smile, the impact would be far more positive than the sight of more police uniforms which are at their best when things are at serious risk of getting out of hand – something that only happens rarely! The rest of the time clubbers are prone to see police officers as people to provoke and challenge, in the same way as teenagers can provoke and challenge their parents. “The alternative is to consign our forgotten gem to the scrapheap and we cannot afford to do this, and would be the poorer for its loss.”

The Albion: Club’s Link set for next meeting

Albion ticket pack on sale

A new initiative aimed at developing closer working links between Albion In The Community (AITC), Brighton and Hove Albion and youth football clubs across Sussex, is proving a success after being launched earlier this summer. The Albion: Club’s Link held its first meeting in July and attracted 45 representatives from the Albion, Sussex FA, youth clubs, local authorities and Active Sussex who discussed the best approach to review player pathways, coaching opportunities and a number of other shared interests as a partnership.

The second of Albion’s fourgame match ticket packages will be available to supporters, which includes a ticket to watch the Seagulls host current Championship leaders Blackburn Rovers. The package is available to all supporters, regardless of loyalty points or previous booking history, and gives fans the opportunity to purchase the same seat for a batch of Albion home games, across the season. After the first sell-out of the season, against Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night, it provides fans with a great opportunity to secure a ticket

Melanie Dunn from AITC, who set up the new forum said: “The aim of Albion: Club’s Link is to bring together everyone involved in youth football across the county to share ideas, knowledge and best practice and the plan is to have three or four meetings a year. The new body will act as a consultative forum and will hopefully ensure better communications between all those involved in youth football across the county. “From an AITC perspective, we want to look at how we can best continue supporting community clubs across Sussex.” The next Albion: Club’s Link meeting takes place at the Amex on Tuesday 16 October (6.30pm arrival, 7pm start, 8.30pm finish). Those attending the meeting will be entered into a prize draw to win a Level 1 Coaching course for an associate of their club. On the agenda is a discussion with Brighton and Hove Albion about recruitment and development academies.

before individual tickets go on general sale. The second package includes tickets to watch Gus Poyet's side host Ipswich Town (2 October), Blackburn Rovers (26 January), Huddersfield Town (2 March) and Charlton Athletic (2 April). Supporters who purchase the four-game package will also receive the relative loyalty points for all four games immediately, which will prove beneficial when purchasing tickets for high-demand away games and for FA Cup fixtures throughout the 2012/13 season. The four-game package is available from £112 for adults, £80 for over-65s, £56 for under18s and £28 for under-10s. Tickets are available now via the online ticketing system, the ticketline 0844 327 1901 and in person at the ticket office, located at The Amex. Words: Will Jago For more Seagulls news visit

ho needs flair when you’ve got true grit? That was what was required to get the points at Vicarage Road in a hard fought scrap against Watford. It was hard to discern the tiki-taka football credentials of both managers in this quintessential Championship battle but there were flashes of quality in the passing of the Albion midfield and the movement of the freshly imported Italian contingent of The Hornets. It could have been a tussle between Italy and Spain such were the nationalities on show. But the stand-out performer had to be Kuszczak. His decision making and cross taking were exemplary, and even though he had few saves to make, his command of his area and organisation of his defence meant that Watford were frustrated even when they deigned to get a shot on target. El Abd and Greer, with exceptional tackles, made Albion look so much “More former more robust than last season. The professional other impressive aspect of the defence was the attacking prowess players should be of the full backs. Bruno and Bridge may sound like a children’s TV double trained to referee” act but they are tough competitors with added flair and will give Gus’s mate, Gianfranco Zola nightmares when he has to face them again at The Amex in the return. Their obduracy and predilection for attacking were key and the defensive performance whilst benefiting from one or two lucky decisions from a terrible referee, warranted at least a point. That Albion came away with all three, unlike last season when they lost too easily, was down to a fantastic defensive display from the whole team. On the subject of the referee, that both sets of supporters were in agreement about how awful the ref was is indicative of the standard of referees at the moment. Yes, we know, it’s a hard job and they have a heavy workload of regulations to manage, but why are they so inconsistent? I think the explanation lies in the current management culture of the age: the target driven, uniform approach to rules. The most respected referees in the past were no nonsense individuals. I’m thinking of the likes of Jack Taylor who refereed the 1974 World Cup Final; “Gentleman” George Courtney, and Pierluigi “The Scream” Collina, one of the finest international referees of his generation. Their decisions went against the precise interpretation of the rules, something now frowned upon by the current crop of referees. More former professional players should be trained to be referees, it works very well in cricket with umpires. Everyone in Vicarage Road last Tuesday night would have agreed on one thing: the performance of the referee deserved a red card regardless of the fact that Albion came away with the points; it goes against us too often to go unnoticed.

Dear Keith, Well, I can see why you don’t “consider yourself” an expert on musicals! But never fear – “I’d do anything” to help you, and I'm sure you’ll “be back soon” to thank me again! The musical of which you speak is, of course, none other than Rent, written by Jonathan Larson. Keep those letters flooding in folks, Mike X

ell, the finishing line has arrived and my 2D robot art exhibition AUTONAMAPHOBIA has spilled out onto the streets of Brighton and the beach. A robot’s head has now reached completion and providing there isn’t a distinct lack of gray pebbles, the rest of the body, neck, legs, arms and feet will be added. I shot down there in my plastic bullet C5 and out of 3,700 invites, three people tootled up to bring the beach pebbled robot to life. This reminded me of the time I tried to set up a National Woolly Jumper day with a radio announcement on the BBC for willing participants to join me at the Meeting Place Café, to unite in our new-found woollyness. Unfortunately, with thick snow

and a blizzard only one jolly old lady turned up with a young girl helping her stay propped up. The old lady rocked up with a red tartan trolley and I thanked her profusely for coming and did she have her woolly jumper in the trolley? Her response was that she didn't have a clue what I was talking about and proceeded to tell me that she was on her way to have her own BBQ on the beach... in thick snow. In true brave, admirable stoic style, I saw her wade through the snow on the pebbles in the distance, then unfortunately topple over with her feet flying in the air, while her alarmed assistant brought her to her feet. Two minutes later smoke clouds appeared and the BBQ was obviously well underway, impressive stuff. I sort of felt I was having a dream

Stayin’ alive in a C5

and retired back to my abode still wearing my jumper... This week’s art exhibition, however, has had an overwhelming response. Come along and grab a complimentary drink with an evening bar. Doors open 7pm at Brighton Media Centre’s Friese Greene Gallery, 15-17 Middle Street, this Friday 28 September.


Dear Mike, Bit of a brain-teaser for you here, I’m afraid. When I was a lad, about 12 years old I would have been, I was taken by my mother up to London’s West End as a special treat. We had a slap-up feed in a posh café, and then saw a show at a theatre there. I thought the show I saw was fabulous, the bee’s knees, but unfortunately I can’t for the life of me remember what it was called. Now, the show was a musical, and involved a huge cast, including a large number of children. I think it was set in Victorian times, and most of the characters presented were of the lower orders. I have only vague memories of the plot, but I reckon it concerned a young protagonist who escapes a workhouse where he is half-starved and makes his way up to London, where he falls in with a criminal

George Eliot, William Makepeace Thackeray, or someone like that. Please help, as I’d love to hear a recording, or perhaps even see the show live (if it’s still going). Yours, in hope... Keith Rumbalow, Hove

star. And I don’t mean beyond the film or on the poster, I just mean in the film she does something completely riveting that a movie star does to make you fascinated with them and what’s going on behind their eyes all the time. It was about a year from her getting the part to her doing the part, and it went through various stop starts, and she was completely loyal and calmly perfected her accent. She worked her ass off. In fact, she’s genuinely one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. She’s the only person I’ve ever worked with who, at the end of the shoot, wrote thank you letters to the entire cast and crew. What a remarkable thing she was and we were blessed with her presence.”


Now Is Good uses Brighton as the backdrop to its sad yet strangely uplifting teenage story. The film’s director Ol Parker explains his love affair with the city, the story and more to Victoria Nangle


ow Is Good stars Dakota Fanning as Tessa, a teenager with terminal leukemia determined to fulfill everything on her young ‘bucket list’. Based on the book Before I Die by Jenny Downham, when director/screenwriter Ol Parker (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) came across it he was determined to adopt it as his next project – and to set the story in Brighton... So, what’s your love affair with Brighton? “My love affair with Brighton started nearly 20 years ago. I wrote a play and it was put on at the Brighton Comedy Festival. It went to Edinburgh and then some nice producers who were running the Brighton Comedy Festival asked if it could be on there, and I had never been. I must have been 21... 22, and I’d never been. So we went down and had the best week putting on the play but also enjoying the town, so that’s where it began, and has continued ever since.” I really like the way you use settings to echo what’s going on in the protagonist’s mind; when it was busy you were in the Lanes and when it was peaceful, you were in the woods. You seem to love the environment and utilise it well... “Thank you very much, well, that is the plan and it’s just a fantastic place to be and it’s just beautiful. The book the film is based on is utterly lovely and extremely bleak, and I wanted to try and open it out and give it a bit more vigour and life, and paradoxically, optimism. Yeah, so I immediately set it in Brighton because it’s the repository of all of those things.” How did you find working with such a young cast after you’ve been working with a more senior cast recently? “A contrast, put it that way. But actually Dakota is one of the oldest 17 year olds you’ll ever meet and she can rival many with her maturity, so that was fine. I loved it, it was great. They are fantastic kids and I feel very paternal describing them as kids, but it was great, they really helped me. I mean, there’s always a risk when you’re in your early 40s and you’re trying to make a film about teenagers and the capacity for embarrassment is vast. And so they were very gentle with me and directed me often and wisely.” There seem to be a lot of films at the moment that have quite young female protagonists in

“There are plenty of fantastically strong women and maybe Hollywood is responding to that finally” them, like The Hunger Games and Hanna – very strong young females. Do you think this is a fad or do you see it as a trend in the way Hollywood is seeing young women? “I hope it’s a trend, yeah, let’s go with the trend. There are plenty of fantastically strong women and maybe Hollywood is, however late, responding to that finally. But yeah, definitely a trend and I’m happy to be part of it.” Why did you cast the American Dakota Fanning to play the English main character Tessa? “Because she’s ace. I mean, did you not think so?” I thought she was very good... “Thank you very much. I don’t know why I’m saying ‘thank you’, it wasn’t even me! She really wanted it, which was one thing. I was meeting British actresses, and I had a strong idea it would be one of them. She read the script and despite being a great big movie star, knowing that there were British actresses up for it she fought for the part rather than sitting back and waiting to be offered it, or expecting to be offered it. It convinced me really quickly of her absolute passion and commitment. And then she turned into a movie

What did she give you? “She knitted me a scarf, which I haven’t worn. But this is how nice she was – she also knitted scarves for my kids which they have worn and wear often, being as they are completely fascinated by her. My youngest daughter is confused because she watched Dreamer, a brilliant film Dakota did, and she thinks it’s a documentary so she was slightly confused when Dakota was in her house and didn’t appear to own a horse called Dreamer.” Your supporting cast were very good. Paddy Considine particularly made me cry, he just had a look... “Yeah, I got lucky, didn't I? We met and I offered it to him with a prayer, as one does, and I think before he read it it didn’t sound like his bag of chips, but I said: ‘No, I know I didn’t think it sounded like mine either but read it – it might not be the movie you think it’s going to be’. Then he read it and we had a drink and he said: ‘You know, I think I’m gonna try to be quite still and quite quiet and not do what you’ve seen me do before,’ and I was like, ‘Great! I’d love that’. And yeah, from day one I was thinking ‘oh my god, he’s awesome’. I mean, it’s a cliché that when things are working on set, that frequently means they don’t work: if it’s working on the day, it’s not always working for the audience. If the crew are laughing then you’ve got a problem, but I mean the crew were sobbing at Paddy so I figured we were doing something right.” You wrote and directed it. Did it become your story? “Well, I have daughters so Paddy’s story was very much the way in for me. I mean, I wrote a scene – and it’s a reasonably free adaptation as most adaptations are – where Paddy is meeting Tessa’s boyfriend for the first time and it’s not in the book, it’s very much coming from my horror at my daughters and their boyfriends. So yeah, it always becomes your story, or you hope it does.” I love that scene... “Thank you very much, it’s good. He has a line which I’ve said to my daughters which is: ‘it’s a terrible day in a dad’s life when his daughter brings a boy home, and I thought that if I killed the first one, word would get around’. And my daughter saw it and said, ‘wait a second, he talks like you!’” Jeremy Irvine, who plays Tessa’s boyfriend, is adorable then too. “He’s ridiculous isn't he? Preposterously handsome. We cast him just before he did War Horse. He was great and he did a brilliant audition and, God bless him, after War Horse he went away and came back after four months and had gained three inches and lost about two stone. And he was just insanely handsome. He was already a brilliant actor and he had just become, like, ‘whoa what happened there!’ – so that felt good. We had a preview the other night, with sobbing 16 year olds saying, ‘he’s the man I wish I had lost my virginity to’. The best compliment you could get!” Now Is Good, directed by Ol Parker, starring Dakota Fanning, Jeremy Irvine, Paddy Considine and Olivia Williams is on general release in cinemas from Friday 21 September 2012

Food & Drink Andrew Kay enjoys Brighton & Hove Food Festival’s Sussex Wine Dinner at Hotel du Vin

Pics: Julia Claxton

A sparkling affair W

ith Sussex winemakers producing such fine vintages these days, especially when it comes to fizz, it is no wonder that the rest of the wine world is sitting up and taking notice. Great wines it would seem are all about terroir and Sussex lies on a circle of chalky soil that runs along the coast and heads back to Rance and to Champagne. When you look at the geography, it makes total sense. This summer the weather has not been good to the grapes and the harvest is predicted to be low, but there is little doubt that the makers will still produce admirable wines. The festival’s gala dinner was a celebration of those wines, but let’s take a look at the food first. Hotel du Vin remains one of our more favoured places to dine; simple bistro fare, usually, but done with style and with a wine list that has some great choices. Only the week before, they won the Make Your Case event in a field of eight wines. We started with smoked salmon blinis, towering blinis to be precise, and very good they were too.

“Sussex has already achieved international acclaim for wine production” Our first course was a cheese parcel, crisp outside and meltingly delicious and strong inside. It came with the most delicious baby plum tomatoes, each one skinned and delicately dressed. Simplicity here won the day, and plates were cleared. Our main course was an elaborate trio of pork, roast loin, belly and a croquette of shredded meat in a crisp breadcrumb shell. With it, a fabulous gratin dauphinoise and a fine apple puree. I loved it all, there was clarity between the separate cuts of meat and a great meat reduction served on the side. There were also bowls of vegetables; nice enough I suppose, but they did look a little like banquetting fare. I shouldn’t grumble – they were, after all, well cooked. Our next treat was a trio of Sussex cheeses supplied by David from La Cave au Fromage. What a great place that is, and he certainly knows his stuff.


Flower Marie was as ever quite delicious. The Lord of the Hundreds worked well with a quince cheese (membrillo by any other name), but the coupling of a hefty camembert-style soft cheese with truffled honey was sublime. If you have never tried the honey, truffle and cheese trick then I urge you to do so. Dessert was a pear poached in red wine and cleverly stuffed with a rich chocolate mousse. On the side, vanilla icecream and syrup. It was the perfect end to an extremely good, and I have to say generous, meal. So on to the wines. With our canapés the very delicious Victoria from Ridgeview, as pretty a pink sparkler as you could wish for, and winemaker Charlie Holand from the Ridgeview Estate, gave a brief history of how it is made. Simon Woodhead from Stopham then told us a little about his wine and about the estate before Mardi Roberts, again from Ridgeview, told us about our second sparkling wine of the evening. Stuart Barfor delivered our final wine chat about his extraordinary sparkling red from the historic Bolney Estate. It was a fascinating evening, the wines causing much debate around the tables. Sussex has already achieved international acclaim for wine production and wines of real quality: by 2015 the county is looking at producing a total of five million bottles of Sussex wines. Ridgeview are already exporting 20 per cent of what they produce, as well as supplying the Royal Household. Bolney Estate will make between 80,000 and 100,000 bottles this year from their 39 acre estate, that was mentioned in the domesday book, and Stopham are one of the first estates to experiment with popular still wine grape varieties like pinot blanc. In addition to a fine meal and fine wines, I took the opportunity to exercise my new hobby for chugging; not chugging down wine but ‘charity mugging’. The previous Friday I prompted a very generous audience at the Make Your Case event to dig deep for the privilege of seeing (the very game) Simon Broad from wine merchants Ten Green Bottles take his shirt off, and £338 did the trick. And at Hotel du Vin we wrestled a further £185 from a very generous room of guests, already paying for the privilege of being there. The Brighton & Hove Food & Drink Festival is now a Community Interest Company – in a sense a charity – but the directors and committee are agreed that we can raise charity money for other causes. This year our chosen charity is Rockinghorse and we have already raised in excess of £1,500 for them. Ryan Heal, the new Chief Executive, was at the dinner and is delighted that we have chosen to work with them this year to raise much needed funds. So if over the next months you see me rattling a tin, then dig deep. Hotel du Vin & Bistro, Ship Street, Brighton, Sussex, BN1 1AD, 01273 718588,,

Back in the saddle Juice FM’s Andrea Fox gets on her bike


he summer months rolled in, and then rolled back out again, and I’ve realised I’ve been doing the minimal amount of running. My head has been turned by summer sports and activities instead! Like sea swimming, and erm, sunbathing, and BBQs! Maybe more emphasis is needed on the ‘activities’ rather than ‘sports.’ But as the nights get cooler, one summer activity that I won’t be waving goodbye to (like my bikinis) is another ‘b’, my bike. Oh yes, I have wheels these days. I’d love to give you loads of tips on good brands and models to pick up expensive, snazzy sports bikes, but mine is a loan. I wanted to try out nipping around town and a friend who I didn’t think could even spell bike, never mind ride one, told me I could borrow hers. My best friend has had my trusty steed since her A Levels but, amazingly, it’s in good condition and looks like a grown up bike. Readers, it’s purple, and the best thing about it: it’s got a basket! It doesn’t have a bell, so I’ve come up with a novel way of alerting tourists to my approach as they meander into the seafront cycle lanes. Shouting ‘DING DING.’

What started as a way to get to the supermarket and back quickly is fast getting out of control. I’ve started memorising cycle route numbers! Heck, I even cycled to and from Fatboy Slim’s Big Beach Bootique at the Amex! Living in Brighton as long as I have, you’d be forgiven for thinking I’d already be an experienced cyclist, but when I moved here to go to university, to be honest, I was too scared! I hid my cycling nerves by blaming the combination of too many English books and too much rain, but really I just didn’t fancy negotiating the Vogue Gyratory at rush hour. But the

Dear Jacquie Your queries about natural health answered by Jacquie Lane from the The College of Naturopathic Medicine Dear Jacquie Every Christmas holiday I come down with a terrible cold which ruins my Christmas. What can I do to help prevent getting one this year? TJ, Lewes Many people find that when they take time off to relax they often come down with an infection or a cold. It sometimes happens when people go on holiday for example. This may be to do with how the body deals with stress and the fact that it can’t switch off, just because we’ve told it to. Also the holiday period can be overly stressful. Our immune system can protect our body from day to day infections, unless of course it is not functioning properly. One way we can help our body’s immunity is by eating the right foods, e.g. a brightly coloured rainbow selection of vegetables and fruits; getting sufficient protein from fish, beans, turkey etc; getting enough rest (sleep); and enough fresh air and exercise.

Cutting out the sugar, alcohol and white refined carbohydrates such as biscuits, cakes and sweets can help our immune system by ensuring we save room for the good stuff! Look to eat foods that contain the following herbs and nutrients: herbs such as Echinachea, Elderberry extract and garlic, minerals such as zinc, and vitamins such as vitamin A, C, and D, plus probiotics, as good gut health may also contribute to a healthy immune system. After all, approximately 70 per cent of our body’s immunity is manufactured in our gut.

Frequent colds and flu are a sign that the body’s immune system is not at its best. This could be a nutrition deficiency and/or stress induced. Working on your diet and lifestyle is the first step to addressing these issues. If you don’t take in the correct balance to meet your nutritional needs your body will not have the resources to fight the infections. A nutritional therapist will be able to devise a programme especially for you. See your health professional for advice. If you have a general health query that you would like to raise here you can email Jacquie at healthqueriesforWave@naturopathy Please note that Jacquie cannot enter into individual correspondence unless your query is chosen for publication.

In the know Mr Ayman Fouad, consultant Urogynaecologist, & Siân Moulder, physiotherapist at the Nuffield Brighton Hospital, offer a range of treatments for urinary incontinence in women


rinary incontinence (UI) is a sudden loss of bladder control that causes you to release urine when you don’t want to. It may happen when you cough, sneeze, laugh, or when you exercise. This is called stress incontinence (SI), however it has nothing to do with emotional stress. SI usually occurs when the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder are weakened. UI may also happen when you have a strong urge to pass urine and you can not get the toilet in time, this is what we call Overactive Bladder Syndrome (OAB). In OAB the bladder muscle becomes irritable, it may contract at inappropriate times causing a strong desire to pass urine, resulting in frequent urination and may even result in urine being passed involuntarily. UI is a very common condition, and it affects women twice as much as men. Around one in three ladies will experience a urinary problem at some stage of their life. Unfortunately many ladies do not seek professional help due to lack of knowledge about their condition or embarrassment. However the majority of these women can be cured. Pelvic floor exercise (PFE) should be the first line of treatment for SI, and it is highly effective in treating OAB. Women’s Health specialist physiotherapist Siân Moulder comprehensively explores the history of the condition with the client and carries out a detailed pelvic floor examination. She will then advise on, and implement, a PFE regime to strengthen the muscles that support the bladder. Siân will supervise PFE and progress treatment using a range of techniques tailored to the needs of the individual. Treatment of OAB and urge incontinence mainly focuses on lifestyle advice and bladder training. Some women find electrical stimulation and biofeedback very helpful.

01273 627008

Physiotherapy treatment is successful in resolving or dramatically improving symptoms in the majority of Women with stress incontinence or OAB, enabling the individual to regain control of their bladder. Surgical treatment is the second option if the symptoms of UI continue to persist after physiotherapy treatment. Medication may be prescribed by Mr Fouad to compliment the treatment of OAB. Currently the surgery for SI is minimally invasive – most women can be treated as a day case. Surgery can be performed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic and does not normally take longer than 20 minutes. The success rate of surgery for SI in keeping you dry on coughing or sneezing is up to 90 per cent. Surgical treatment is either in the form of a synthetic sling to support the bladder neck or injection at the level of bladder opening. During your consultation, Mr Fouad will discuss with you both options and you will decide on which one suits you the most. If you are experiencing problems with your bladder, do not suffer in silence, remember you are not alone and your condition can be treated with tremendous success. Speak to your GP or contact Nuffield Health today for further information and take control. For direct referrals to Physiotherapy please call 08450454845 and ask for a consultation with Siân Moulder. Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital, Warren Road, Wodingdean, 01273 627008, Mr Fouad, consultant at Brighton and Sussex University hospitals consults weekly at the Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital and the Nuffiled Health Haywards Heath Hospital. Siân Moulder, holds a Women’s Health Physiotherapy clinic once a fortnight in Brighton and weekly in Crawley at Nuffield Health Fitness and Wellbeing centre.

COLOURFUL LANGUAGE BLUE/ORANGE, Theatre Royal Brighton, 18 September 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪


his articulate three-hander from writer Joe Penhall is the second play in the inaugural season of Theatre Royal Productions. First performed in 2000 amidst great controversy, Blue/Orange combines fascinating issues of mental health care, academia politics and power struggles into a single play. Thought-provoking, to say the least, its tale is of a young black mental health in-patient, Christopher, a student doctor, Bruce, and his supervising consultant, Dr Smith. Christopher is about to be released, having

spent his court-appointed 28 days in residential psychiatric care, but Bruce doesn’t feel he is ready or fully diagnosed, and so calls in his consultant to observe and to garner his opinion on the case. Where the doctors disagree, with their own agendas – not the least of which is the book Dr Smith is working on and the missing chapter he hopes to write on cultural context as a reason for the high number of Africandescent Britons currently being treated for psychiatric illnesses – the gloves come off. All three characters are dedicated in their pursuit of what they see to


Over The Moon, a delightfully intimate and atmospheric festival in the Sussex countryside, provided an awful lot of what any festival-goer fancies. With two music stages, two Talks Tents and a beautifullyarranged Healing Area, it was family-

be right. Oliver Wilson’s portrayal of Christopher encapsulates the pent up energy, anxiety and confusion of a man set on his path, even if that path changes faster than he can see, evoking great empathy and humour. Gerard McCarthy as the young student doctor is passionate and determined, his kindness hinting at a wider naivety of the context of his chosen profession. It has to be said that both actors blow out of the water any clichés regarding the limitations of soap actors, being Hollyoaks alumni and top notch. Taking his place at the top of the power pyramid is Robert Bathurst as Dr Robert Smith. Pragmatic but not without sympathy, and well accustomed to having the power of the ‘establishment’ behind him, Dr Smith is the smiling face of a ruthless system perfectly encapsulated. Sharply written, this is a complex topic communicated clearly and with pathos delivered by all three characters. In turns light of hand, funny, aggressive, and political as the power changes in time between the three again and again, it both captivates and entertains its audience from start to finish. Bravo. Victoria Nangle


orientated and packed with stimulating and varied entertainment for those of the cerebral and hedonistic persuasion. Highlights were courtesy of the indefatigable, and still monstrously frenetic, Eat Static; the psychedelic stomp of Zub Zub; and the legendary reggae mashup that is Roots Garden. Gregory Sams also deserves mention for his absorbing talk on ‘Ancient Light’. A real success. Sussex Downs, 14–16 Sept 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ James Gibson


If you are a facial hair fan and like nothing more than applauding a man for his commitment to growing 'graspable extremities', then hazar! From natural moustaches and mankinis to pure monocle warfare, the British Beard and Moustache Championships boasted a wide range of astounding styles and imaginative designs. There are not many events that bring the young into competition with older generations, however the BBMC did it with dignity setting apart the boys from the gentlemen.

L7 Previews STAGE: AVANT GUARDIANS Award-winning director Nathan Evans comes to Brighton’s Marlborough Theatre


fter selling out previews at Oval House and the Arts Council’s decibel Showcase in Manchester last year, this creative collision of cabaret, live art and film conceived by award-winning director Nathan Evans comes to Brighton’s Marlborough Theatre. The show features performances by Avant Guardian Angel, David Hoyle, the reigning Alternative Miss World Fancy Chance and Eco-Worrier Extraordinaire Timberlina, who each have just 14 minutes to save the planet. David Hoyle’s career has spanned decades and continents. Whilst manifesting as ‘The Divine David’ he had an eponymous Channel 4 series, plus he’s also fetched up at Sydney Opera House and directed a feature film; his residencies at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern are the stuff of legend. All performances have been developed and directed by Nathan Evans in collaboration with the artists and the support of Arts Council England. As a writer, director and performer his shows have been toured by the British Council, broadcast on Channel 4, archived by the British Film Institute, awarded a few statuettes and presented at venues across the planet. He said; “I came up with the idea for this project when I discovered the TED Talks, which challenge the world’s ‘inspired thinkers’ to give the ‘talk of their lives’ in 18 minutes. I was seeking a way to give artists a guiding time frame and concept to produce a performance when Dale Arden’s voice popped into my head hollering, ‘Flash! I love you but we only have 14 hours to save the earth!’ and I had it.” Nathan has been challenged to create his own 14 minute performance for Latitude and will be creating further performances with other artists as the project develops. The show, which also features cinematic entr’actes created with theatrical radical, Bette Bourne, and video anti-hero, Kate Pelling, have been described by The Erotic Review as “fast-paced, thought-provoking and extremely entertaining’ and “a happy dose of queer cabaret” by The

eordie girl Beth Jeans Houghton had been flirting with the public for a few years but it wasn’t until the release of the long delayed debut album Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose earlier this year, that the press and public really took notice. Pigeon-holed as ‘freak-folk’, the album was a glorious technicolor romp that signalled the arrival of a major talent, albeit one perhaps a little bit too off the mainstream to garner mass appeal. Time will tell, but in the meantime she and her band are enjoying their situation. “I’m with my mum on route from the Lake District,” she tells me over the phone. “We just spent a couple of days in a B&B; we do it every year. She’s my best friend. Sometimes I’m my mum’s best friend – when I’m not getting pierced or tattooed, or smoking! “Both of my parents weren’t fussed about me or my brother becoming lawyers or doctors or anything, they always felt like if we were happy then they would be happy. I appreciate that.” A true creative, Houghton largely dispenses with musical orthodoxy, but yet her music makes total sense. It’s a breath of fresh air in the currently stifling musical atmosphere of willful retroism and indie-folk by numbers. “I did music in high school and I hated it – they have all these rules about what is right or wrong. I play guitar, piano, banjo, ukulele, mandolin – most things with strings and most things with keys. I’ve played a lot of things, not every one well. I’m getting a piano tomorrow, for free. A real one. “I was always wanting to make my own music – I don’t know a lot of other people’s songs, I was never very interested in that." Last seen in Brighton as part of The Great Escape, she is back to do a final tour of the album before setting off to LA to record the follow up. “We played straight after a tour of Italy which wasn’t great; not that many people, playing late, and no support band, and I had just woken up and I came up partly in my pyjamas and the room [Pavilion Theatre, Brighton] was full and everyone seemed excited – it was nice to come home to that. “I’ve wanted to be in America since I was a child. I first went there when I was 20 and I have some good friends there now. I listened to a lot of West Coast ‘70’s music as a kid and that’s always been appealing to me. I’ve met a lot of the bands who live in Echo Park and Silver Lake and they are all very supportive of each other – I find in London it’s very competitive. And it’s a lot easier to eat healthily and the weather is good.” The Haunt, Friday 28 September, 7pm, £9 follow me on twitter

COMEDY: THE BOY WITH TAPE ON HIS FACE ...aka Sam Wills has officially had the best reviewed show of the Edinburgh Fringe. About to hit big, we have a chat How do you describe your show to people that haven’t seen it? “Um... I describe it as stand-up without talking, that's the easiest way. Usually if you like stand up comedy then you will like my show. It’s using exactly the same tools and format – punch lines – except the only difference is instead of words I use props and people and music.” When did you decide to have no words in your act? “I decided, I think it was back in 2005 in New Zealand. I won a comedy award and at the time it was the biggest comedy award in New Zealand. I was doing another show where I spoke a lot, I still had audience interaction and props but did a lot of talking comedy and I just got bored of my own voice actually, and I decided to do a silent character. The first time I did the silent character I went on stage and within 30 seconds I ruined the routine by talking to the front row. The next time I came back and had decided to put the tape over my face and that’s where the character kinda grew from. So it was more a necessity than absolutely anything else.” Would you consider taking the tape off again? “Oh yeah absolutely. This show came about because I got bored of doing my other show, so I think the moment the novelty of the show wears off then I’ll stop it completely and I’ll move onto something else. There’s always an evolution at some point that you’re gonna go and do something else. The only reason I do this is because it’s fun and as soon as the fun stops, I will stop and kill the character off – in a very dramatic way no doubt. Very sinister or maybe I’ll just peel the tape off and say ‘goodnight’. That’ll be the final thing I do.” So what’s next for you – more BBC3 Tape Face Tapes? “That was a bit of a stepping stone. I decided to have a little play with the medium of television and see what I liked about it and we’re still talking about some new ideas, it was a good show. I would like to evolve it into something else, so we’re still talking through new ideas and bits and pieces which is nice.” The Boy With Tape On His Face: More Tape, Komedia, Tuesday 2–Thursday 4 October, 8pm, £12/10, follow me on twitter

Will Ferrell stars as the incumbent and charismatic congressman, used to politicking with the best of them and usually unopposed. Some bigwigs take exception to this and push the mildmannered head of the local tourist board Zach Galifianakis into considering running against him, with their financial and political backing. What results is a plunge into the depths of mudslinging, backbiting and general political depravity, exposing the dirt on everyone in the slapstick style both stars have become known for. Plus with added bite writer Chris Henchy famous for 2010’s The Other Guys, Spin City, Entourage and the Funny Or Die... series. Also starring Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd and Brian Cox. Released Friday 28 September Showing at Odeon and Cineworld

STARS With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

When you are asserting your rebellious need for authenticity and self expression we know you mean no harm. But what if the universal forces for human evolution need you to embrace their mighty authority and are piling on the pressure? Partners can help you explore this conflict of interest.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

Your ruling planet Venus is transiting the glamorous and gorgeous drama queen, Leo, and sexy Mars in Scorpio. With sizzling passions, you won’t need a thermometer to feel the heat. Remember, discretion is the better part of valour.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

You’re really on a roll getting a much more dynamic sense of who you are. Of course you have to take full advantage of all the opportunities you’re being offered, but don’t over-extend yourself. Once Jupiter leaves your sign in the spring of next year, you’ll have to carry the torch single handed.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

What you learn in the background might be upsetting over the full Moon. A change in philosophy is called for when called to account in a professional situation. Improve communications rather than being needlessly hostile or unreasonable.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

If you’re going to be the ring-master, remember you’ll come across a lot of clowns as much as noble beasts. An emotional impulse inspired by your higher mind could resolve the difference you’ve felt between you and a colleague. Venus may well be in your sign, but all that glistens is not gold.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

You might feel that partners are being a tad deceptive but with the best will in the world, they would tell you that they’re trying to heal a situation on a spiritual or psychological level. With Jupiter spurring you on, it’s time to avoid the emotional doldrums by going on a short trip to get perspective.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

Emotional disruptions could somehow be inextricably linked with your health but more on a feeling than physical level. While Venus your ruling planet transits Leo the performer of the zodiac, you could be called into major romantic drama.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

Regeneration is the name of the game, like those hundred Spartans on the bridge; it could feel like do or die. Come on relax, there’s time to be a little less intense about things, smokey looks just wont cut it now as ESP is out and clear communication is in.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

Over the full Moon you just want to blurt it out, sure that foreign love or sexy intellectual gets you going, but without that visceral engagement it doesn’t mean a thing. With Jupiter in your opposite sign, partnerships formed now are bound to expand horizons.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

You know your whole life is in change as enlightening Uranus and transformative Pluto conspire to give you the pragmatic solutions to your metamorphosis. You don’t have to go live on a commune, just look out for an alternative domestic situation.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

In the past others may have suspected you were being a bit of a cold fish, but the current climate of Mars square Venus has put your libido in a spin. As you well and truly end some lucky so and so’s doubts, you get out of your head and into your skin.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

The contentious Mars in Scorpio has made you more aware of the disruptive and cruel events in some corners of the world. The media may have a more profound effect on you over the full Moon as you look for a solution to your tumbling thoughts.

When our arms have felt like Mr Tickle’s and knocked everything off their perches, where a mother is destined to carry on blithely despite protests, and when that dishy chap you’ve just got together with heads off to some exotic land we become a sofa monster.
