EDITOR’S NOTE

I

s it overly pessimistic to be thinking about January’s mammoth task of placating the scales and working off the holiday’s indulgences, already? Maybe. But I prefer to think of it as ‘pragmatic’ – a battle plan set in place to ensure the next few weeks are appropriately hedonistic, but truly guilt free. The spirit has taken hold here at LHQ ... there’s cake, biscuits and all manner of chocolate covered goodies here for the taking and believe me, it’s hard to say no. But if you’re lucky enough to have a little time off and some good people to spend it with, then holiday indulgences don’t all have to be of the consumable variety. This issue is testament to that – local theatres and venues are bursting at the seams with entertainment this month, and well into the new year. Why not catch a little ice-dancing magic at the Brighton Centre if you haven’t

before? It’s Holiday On Ice’s lauded 70th anniversary show, no less. You could still be in time to catch the tailend of panto season, and there’s gigs and comedy for everyone, whatever your taste and however flashy or frugal you desire to be. We’re feeling generous this issue, too (I hasten to add – aren’t we always?) and we’ve some great competition prizes up for grabs, as well as a carefully selected last minute Christmas gift guide for all you chancers out there. You have my empathy – I’m one of them! As we bid farewell to the last 365 days, fondly branded ‘2014’, we can start the new year afresh with our own ideas, aspirations and hopes for the 365 days to come. Merry Christmas, and a very happy New Year to you all. Louise Bevan, Editor Email your comments to editorial@thelatest.co.uk or visit us online at thelatest.co.uk

Blue Mango’s extravagant launch; jewellery designer Jeremy Hoye reveals new collection

BLUE MANGO’S LAUNCH PARTY Brighton Marina had a taste of the exotic as Blue Mango marked its opening with an extravagant launch party on Tuesday 25 November. Special guests from across Brighton gathered at the newly opened Indian Restaurant and Bar to celebrate the launch. Hosting a three course buffet meal, which boasted the culinary skills of Head Chef Rakesh Kumar, VIPs and business owners enjoyed live entertainment throughout the night with the opportunity to handle a live Burmese Cobra, be stunned into silence by a table magician, and enthralled by the moves of a sensational local belly Blue Mango staff member dancer. Blue Mango Brighton is the second restaurant to be opened under the emerging chain, which has already received rave reviews from diners. Guests at the event were bowled over by their experience and enjoyed oneto-one discussions with Rakesh and his team about their traditional cooking techniques and secret blends of herbs Hal Ravi, Rakesh Kumar & Katariina Jarvinen and spices, as they tasted various dishes from the restaurant’s incredible Rakesh Kumar menu. One guest commented: “This is certainly an Indian restaurant that delivers a quality of food unmatched in the local area. I will be coming here for a special treat as often as possible.” Mukesh Driver, General Manager of Blue Mango Brighton, said; “We are so pleased to mark the opening of our new restaurant here in Brighton with Katariina Jarvinen, Emma Hayes & Hal Ravi such a fantastic launch party. Our guests were extremely excited about what Blue Mango will be offering and we are also incredibly excited about our future here in Brighton Marina.” Blue Mango Brighton is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner and a full takeaway option is available with 20% discount on all orders.

NEW JEWELLERY COLLECTION AT HOUSE OF HOYE At House of Hoye, celebrated jewellery designer Jeremy Hoye hosted a stylish event to launch his new collection. Guests gathered to see new work that sees Jeremy return to his great passion – designing unique items of jewellery in precious metals with precious and semiprecious stones. Hoye’s work has become much sought after, with many clients avid collectors of his work, and the launch of a new range was certainly the talking point of the evening as guests sipped Prosecco and tasted delicious food from Indian Summer in his recently reinvented emporium.

Brighton and Hove City Council leader Jason Kitcat The East Sussex Credit Union has recently reached a record £2m balance sheet. Thousands of residents in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex have chosen to put their savings into this local, not for profit co-operative. They now also offer savings accounts to community groups, as well as business loans of up to £15,000 to small local businesses and social enterprises. The community organisation behind the local currency the Lewes Pound is the first business member of the union. Set up in 2004, the credit union provides secure savings accounts and affordable lending to local residents. By providing an alternative to traditional banks, and far less scrupulous loan sharks, they combat poverty in our communities and help residents across the country become more economically independent. Anyone who is a member of the credit union also automatically becomes a shareholder for the organisation. Unlike the big banks, the co-operative structure means that profits are given back to members as a dividend. As a result the benefits of the credit union’s growth go straight back into the pockets of us, the local community. Through the citywide ‘Moneyworks’ programme, the credit union often supports people who are sometimes not able to access credit or bank accounts with mainstream banks. The credit union are able to make smaller, faster loans to those in financial trouble, and compete against payday lenders to ensure people in need don’t end up in a debt trap. The costs of Christmas can mount up quickly, and many residents struggle to make ends meet. Payday lenders and loan sharks have the resources to exploit people in trouble, so it’s crucial that we make sure affordable, ethical and local financial support is as accessible as possible to people in our communities.

THE VOTE

The housing crisis shows how Brighton and Hove is struggling to cope with the success and growth of its universities

T

he success of Brighton and Hove’s two universities comes at a price; a meeting will be told this afternoon (Tuesday 16 December). A report due to be presented to Brighton and Hove Connected said: “University growth (will) have a large impact on the current make-up of communities along with political implications. There are also potential issues around students not paying council tax and huge pressures on housing supply.” The last point will surprise few. Some blame students for the housing crisis in Brighton and Hove. For sure, students have added to demand – as have the rising number of family breakdowns, holiday home owners and people moving here from London. But this is to overlook other factors. Key among them is that the number of houses built has plummeted. Some 329 homes were completed in Brighton and Hove in 2006-07. In 2012-13 the number was 46, compared with 58 the year before and 51 in 2010-11. Yet even the recent peak – eight years ago –

was well below demand and the averages of the 1950s and 1960s. We have built obstacles to the creation of new homes. And the resulting housing crisis is far from unique to Brighton and Hove. The focus on the student factor here is the result of growth at Sussex University and Brighton University. As they have burgeoned, people who bought their nearby council homes have rented them out to students or sold them to landlords who have done the same. Family homes have become student digs. The character of streets and sometimes a wider area has changed. It was christened “studentification” and it has

There is a danger that you’ll look like King Canute and the tide will come in anyway its critics. The universities have worked with Brighton and Hove City Council to tackle some of the problems but it can be a bit like whack-a-mole. As one problem is dealt with, up pops another. The universities agreed a more strategic approach – to create purpose-built blocks. Some are on the campuses at Falmer. Others are in town, close to university buildings or the roads

leading there. One scheme put forward by Sussex envisaged about 4,000 student bedsits on the Falmer campus. University staff worked with planning officials to shape a scheme that conformed to local planning policies. But councillors turned it down. On Friday (12 December) the university was due to submit a formal appeal. Two days earlier a scheme for 205 Brighton University students was approved. It is one of a number of similar schemes making progress, including Circus Street. But even as members of the council’s Planning Committee voted in favour, they expressed concerns about noise and disturbance, rubbish and mess, parking and transport and the buildings themselves. One of the council’s most senior officials, Geoff Raw, spelt out some hard truths to a different committee last month. He told the Audit and Standards Committee: “We’ve been in discussion with the universities because they are forecasting student numbers to increase by about 12,000. They are looking at about 6,000 units of accommodation. “We have to be pragmatic. Those students will come to the city regardless of what the council thinks. There is a danger that you’ll look like King Canute and the tide will come in anyway. There are opportunities to look at student accommodation in the city and be an investor in it. It stops the pressure on the loss of family size accommodation in the city. “Students make the decision about where they live. They can’t be forced into halls. Brighton is seen as a party town and they want to be here. There are sites in Newhaven, for example, and they are 15 to 20 minutes on the train from the universities. But it may be hard to persuade 18 to 22-yearolds to live in Newhaven.” The universities are worth more than £1 billion to the local economy and employ thousands of people. The council cannot stop their growth. It can work with them and help them better understand local needs. Or it can play gesture politics and abdicate its duty to us all. You don’t need a degree to work out what’s for the best.

This week’s headlines from across the city

ECONOMY ON TRACK – DESPITE JOB LOSSES The UK's economy is on track – those were the words of employment minister Esther McVey as she gave an exclusive interview to Latest TV. The comments came after health giant BUPA announced it would be cutting 170 posts in the city. But despite the bad news, the Tory frontbencher remained buoyant. She was in Brighton to visit Brighton Kemptown MP Simon Kirby – and see up close the work of Swim UK in boosting apprenticeships. Coming in the same week that businesses from across Sussex were celebrated, it was a reminder that we're blessed with some great firms on the south coast. BALLS TO THE DEFICIT It was a busy week on the political visit front as Labour's shadow chancellor Ed Balls came to town. In what was a perfectly constructed photo-shoot, he served coffee to people queuing at the Small Batch near Hove Station. In yet another exclusive interview with Latest TV, the shadow chancellor confirmed that Labour would look to reduce public spending to bring down the deficit if it won power next year. He also played down the threat of the Greens – but you'd expect that from him, wouldn't you?

LABOUR DEFECTION Every week it seems I am writing about how the run-up to next year's local and general election is hotting up. Well, the past week it started to bubble nicely as Labour councillor Leigh Farrow announced his defection to UKIP. This was after he was de-selected by Labour to stand for the party in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean after a series of complaints about his behaviour from council. Labour locally said the announcement was “somewhat surprising” – claiming that Cllr Farrow recently described UKIP as “racist”, “xenophobic” and “acting like the BNP”. Regardless, it will be a blow to Labour with every vote crucial, even in what is seemingly a safe seat for the party of the red rose.

HENS SUCCESS Good news for all of you following our Home Our Hens campaign. Thousands have now been rehomed – and it's all down to the hard work of Hove campaigner

Sue Baumgardt. On Thursday and Friday, she saved 6,000 birds from the slaughterhouse with both individuals and groups coming forward. DOGG VISIT Brighton hosted rap royalty last week when Snoop Dogg came to town. The man who's sold more than 30 million hits performed a two-hour set “Djing and hosting his hits” at Shoossh Brighton in King’s Road Arches. UK dates have been thin on the ground since his ban on entering the UK was lifted in March 2010. But following a successful night, here's hoping the dogg is back some time soon.

CHRISTMAS CHEER 1 Is it Christmas again already? It sure is. And for those of you not in the mood for some festive cheer, look away now. That's because in Southwick two householders have kitted out their property in illuminations of every variety – all in the aid of Chestnut Tree House and St Barnabas House. The owner, Paul Ross-Dale, said there were more flashing lights than you could wave a bright candy cane at – and I agree ... CHRISTMAS CHEER 2 Thousands of pounds have been raised for charity thanks to the ‘Elf on the Twelfth’ campaign. Those taking part were encouraged to donate £1 to wear red and green on 12/12/14 and help make life better for sick children in Sussex this Christmas. And the Latest TV cameras were on hand to catch it. CHRISTMAS CHEER 3 Advent is here, which for many of you involves eating chocolate. But for those on St Nicholas Road, Brighton, the traditional calendar has taken on another form. Street residents came together to create displays in their home windows, so all can join in the countdown. A truly special way to welcome in Christmas.

JOLLY GOOD SPORTS Jules Breach has the best news and gossip from Latest Sport 2014 ey sports fans! Corr, it’s chilly out there now isn't it? Christmas is well and truly on its way, so to celebrate we are going to unwrap some of our favourite Latest Sport TV moments of 2014! We've had some cracking guests on and we've got so much to look forward to for 2015.  One of my personal highlights of the year had to be having 10 year old Dan Morley on our show At The Amex. Dan might be a little whipper snapper, but it was fascinating to hear him come out with stats from times before he was even born! He’s a real talent and he also provided us with one of the biggest laughs of the year so far. I don’t think Dan realised what he did himself, but he pretty much asked me out on a date, live on the telly, much to all the rest of the team’s delight. Another one of my most hilarious moments of the year was when a punter told me I looked better ‘off camera’, which is just charming when you spend the majority of your time being filmed. Good thing I’ve got a sense of humour! We’ve had some fantastic guests on the sofa on Match Day Breakfast and some inspirational ones as well.

If I sat here and listed them all it would take all day, but to name some of our favourites; Dick Knight, Adam Virgo, Kerry Mayo, Andy Dalby-Welsh, Allan Mullery, Lloyd Ellett, Sergio Torres, Suzi Ruffell and JP Omari. They all provided us with their expert opinions on their areas of sport and we had some laughs with them too. Our ‘dodgy quiz’ got dodgier as the year went on, and I can guarantee even dodgier stuff to come in the new year!

Jules and the Blink girls

Yardy’s benefit events have been such a success and I’m sure anyone that knows him and has attended one of his events knows what a genuine guy he is, and how important the charities that he supports are to him – Rockinghorse and Mind are two charities very close to his heart. The Latest Sport team will be at Mike’s final event of the year on Friday 19 December and it will be a great event to sum up our success this year, as well as to support a local man in his final event of the year. We hope you’ve enjoyed watching and we look forward to bringing loads more of the best sporting action and events to your telly in 2015, on Latest Sport TV. Have a very Merry Christmas from all of us on the team, and I hope you'll be busting those new moves you've learnt from JP Omari on the dance floors this New Years Eve! See you in 2015, sports fans!

DRESSING UP Lynn Ruth Miller is thinking outside the fruit bowl Chinese fruit seller in Nanjing decided to dress his peaches in fancy knickers and triple the price. He labeled them ‘fancy peach butts’ and charged £48 a dozen. What a great gift idea! What a great solution for the person on your Christmas list who has everything. Can you imagine a better present than a cute little peach decked out in lacy underwear? And why stop there? Imagine awakening on Christmas morning to discover a banana in a bow tie and a top hat doing a soft shoe just for you? Think of the delight children would have when they opened up Santa’s gifts to find a pair of plums in tutus and lace bodices tucked into a chiffon lined box? I cannot think of anything better to give your nan than a cluster of grapes laced with garlands of velvet ribbon. After all, she has received enough lace hankies to last a lifetime. She will thrill to the novelty of something she doesn’t have to tuck in a bureau drawer to give to someone else next year. Christmas shopping would be so much easier for us all. No more beating our way through crowded malls trying to outspend each other, piling up mountains of colorful boxes filled with useless trinkets no one wants under the tree. We would not have to spend hours exploring one expensive novelty shop after another in the Lanes trying to find just the right tie, or the prettiest bauble for our loved ones. All we would need to do is run over to the green grocer and load up on produce, take it home and dress it up. On Christmas morning, the house would be filled with jolly pears in tap shoes and apples sporting feather boas. Wow! And don’t forget the veggies! They tart up amazingly well. There is nothing as appealing as a mushroom in spats and every potato worth its butter looks better in mesh stockings with a flowered garter. What to serve for Christmas breakfast? Problem solved. Just put all the gifts in a large bowl, add some scones, clotted cream and a bit of eggnog, and enjoy. “One that would serve fruit, must give it a good presentation.” – An anonymous Chinese philosopher

often wonder why this country is one of the only countries in the world that champions the roast dinner. It’s got it all. Succulent meat oozing with rich thick gravy. Vegetables glazed with honey, syrup and garlic. Potatoes marinated in goose fat then roasted until they reach their optimum level of crispiness. We even have our roasts with little puddings composed of pancake batter, which then become impromptu sponges to soak up that delicious viscous gravy. In summary, the roast dinner is a truly British masterpiece. Much like Shakespeare, Blake and Britten, Brunel, Newton and Churchill.

It’s the frantic rush to get every ingredient on at the right time to ensure they’re all cooked at the same time. It’s the ale. It’s the wine. It’s the waiting.

I

’m not sure about the term ‘guilty pleasure’. I’ve certainly said it a few times on the radio, when I hear a pop song for the first time, hate it, then grow to love it within a couple of weeks. Take That’s latest single, for instance, is a good example of this. But I don’t feel guilty about it. I don’t lay awake at night wishing I hadn’t liked that song. It just goes against the supposed ‘cool’ stuff that I like; Jungle, Alt-J, etc. I think I’ve always been drawn to ‘uncool’ bands and slightly put off by the cool ones. Firstly what is cool? Who decides? The Fonz? If someone says something is cool, then we get drawn in to it, simply because cool is cool. But is it? Cool, for me, is authenticity. It’s being original and true to yourself, not following the crowd because it’s the cool thing to do. Am I making sense? Cool. The first live gig I ever went to was Queen in Knebworth in 1986. It was also, sadly, their last ever live show with Freddie. But Queen were a band that were seen as very uncool at varying stages in their career. In fact the year before, just before they blew away all the other acts at Live Aid in Wembley, critics had already

written them off. Even now, there’s a lot of Queen hate, but the more criticism I hear of them the more I love them. But also, for me, it’s cool to like the uncool. Coldplay are a recent example, where everybody loved them initially and then the tide turned – suddenly it was most definitely not cool to like Chris Martin and co. It may be justified on some level but who decides? And where does one get on and off the bandwagon of hate? So, despite being critical of Coldplay at times (they can be terribly bland), as public opinion turned against them, I found myself drawn towards them. Royal Blood are playing Brighton soon. A great band, from the local area, who have come from nowhere to have one of the

For me, it’s cool to like the uncool best albums and be one of the most exciting acts of the year. They are NME cool. But will that be the case in a couple of years’ time? Or will said magazine decide they’ve had their time and they’re throwing their weight behind Colin and the Credit Cards? Do you know what I’m doing on the night Royal Blood play to a sell-out crowd at the Dome? I’m taking my mum to see Status Quo and Chas n’ Dave at the Brighton Centre. Now, that’s cool.

FOIL ARMS AND HOG Three clearly great actors and comedians from Ireland performed some of the most hilarious and well thought out comedy I’ve seen. Although due to a small crowd (first night), the show got off to a slightly shaky start; we were all soon laughing genuinely, rather than out of awkward politeness. From an intervention staged for a tee-total son to a game of exploding beer cans, these guys are the real deal. The two most memorable moments

ith an audience liberally peppered with ‘ladies’ expecting a night of male striptease, expectations were riding high for this theatrical translation of the hit film. Credit to the production then for delivering an entertainment that worked on every level. The cast are superb, they convey the desperation of the time well, Thatcher is demonized, unemployment is rife and desperate measures are taken. Gary Lucy is excellent in the lead role of Gaz, matched at this performance by Fraser Kelly as the small boy at the core of the story. Andrew Dunn gives a great performance as uncomfortable Gerald, Louis Emerick milks every creak from the role of Horse, Rupert Hill bucks all the stereotypes as gay character Guy and Bobby Schofield is totally charming as the lost Lomper. Martin Miller’s Dave is the perfect tragi-comic foil to the bravura Gaz throughout. The females in the company are all good but this play is about the insecurities of men, mentally castrated by the decline of their industrial base and the lack of governmental support. The set is a stunner too. The audience reacted well, perhaps enjoying the humour more than the darker aspects of industrial decline; perhaps more poignant for audiences in areas that were so deeply affected at that time. As for the strip, well they certainly pulled it off – but I have to say that as a drama, The Full Monty is far greater than the sum of all their parts.

REVIEWS ALADDIN Christmas has begun and there’s no better way to kick things off than this panto. S Club 7′s Jon Lee takes the turn of Aladdin with able support from BGT’s Kieran Sutcliffe and Sarah James, plus the hardy perennials Tom and Jack from Heart FM providing the comic relief. The plusses outweigh the negatives. Setting it in Peking seemed odd (it’s an Arabian Night tale!) and some of the jokes were tired and well worn. But the cast are tight (even at this early stage in the run), the energy kept up by Stephen Richards as Widow Twanky and Terry Gleed as Wishy Washy and the first half’s comedy routine was superb. Well worth a visit. Connaught Theatre, Worthing, 8 December 2014 ★★★★★ Lee Stevens

SOUNDING FOOD AND MUSIC This unusual concert explored the relationship of the senses that food creates through poetry, opera and experimental music. In an hour, the audience was entertained by Contemporary Connections’ exploration of gender in relation to food, also. Sadly, the first two pieces consisting of electronic music and contemporary lyrics felt very distant from the theme, however the last three operatic styles (including the Frivolous Cake from Titus Groan) made up for it with their atmosphere and comic timing. The beautiful singing talents of Rebecca Hardwick, Allan Smith and Becky Brown were especially engaging and enjoyable to listen to. The Old Market, 6 December 2014 ★★★★★ Sascha Cooper

o ho ho, and a very uninspired Christmas. I sincerely hope that you are having more fun and more luck in finding the right gifts for your family and friends this year, as I am feeling singularly uninspired. A walk around the city left me feeling cold, the amount of tat out there, specially confected to fill us with seasonal goodwill, left me feeling seasonally abused. I cannot ever imagine that I will be tempted to buy anything emblazoned with Santa, Rudolph, Christmas fairies or elves in the same way that I would never indulge in anything referring to staying calm.

Tired and uninspired maybe but still full of good cheer truth. I love Christmas, I really do – I just hate all the commercial claptrap that decorates it. I wrote recently about my disbelief in religious matters, but I was reduced to tears of laughter a few days ago when a friend reported that their small child had been cast in the school Christmas play, as a spaceman (excuse me being gender specific, but the child is a boy), a non-speaking role I believe. I laughed, but not because it was particularly funny but because it was rather sad. I understand that in a world of multi denominational education the needs of all faiths to be represented should be honoured and celebrated, but spacemen at a depiction of the birth of Christ does strike me as going too far. Even though my faith is damaged, possibly beyond repair, I want my nativity to be traditional; shepherds, sheep, a donkey, three wise men, an inn keeper and his wife maybe, Mary, Joseph … and a doll swaddled in a tea towel. I want proper carols too, and, if you’re asking, I want ‘In The Bleak Mid-Winter’ (I don’t mind which arrangement, they all reduce me to tears). I will happily join in any other

For Mum, well she likes simple pleasures like nice toiletries and chocolate and warm, but pretty, clothes. Friends get food or wine or art of some kind, depending on who they are and what they like. No one gets anything that is a seasonal joke, no Santa socks or Rudolph undies, no ugly tea mugs or jolly tea towels. What do I want?

ICE ICE BABY

Holiday on Ice returns to The Brighton Centre with an explosive 70th anniversary celebration he Brighton Centre is delighted to announce that after two years away, the most popular ice show in the world, Holiday on Ice, is returning to the UK for one week only with their 70th anniversary show ‘Platinum’, featuring Dancing on Ice All Star winner Ray Quinn. Running from Tuesday 6 to Sunday 11 January 2015 at The Brighton Centre only, ‘Platinum’ is a tribute to 70 years of Holiday on Ice, which has been appearing at the venue since 1978. Traditional elements and surprising moments combine to create an incomparable show experience, which will enchant audiences of all ages. Taking the audience through the history of figure skating, the show will be accompanied by a mix of music from electro and waltz to swing, gospel and samba. Ray commented: “I'm so thrilled to be a part of Holiday on Ice ‘Platinum’; it is the 70th year celebration show, so it’s extra special! Holiday on Ice is such an all-time family favourite, and for me, to be back on the ice is really exciting. The show is going to bring so much together from past traditional shows to the more contemporary, present day. It’s going to be amazing – I genuinely can’t wait!” Whilst keeping the show fresh and current, the first act ‘That was then…’ has a touch of nostalgia. With contemporary music and costumes referencing the high glamour and traditions that audiences have come to love over the years, it includes incredible footage of world champion Olympic stars who have performed in previous Holiday on Ice shows. The second half ‘This is now!’ explodes with modern scenes and accompanying music that still hold every tradition of a fabulous Holiday on Ice production.

RIGHT ROYAL Regal delights from the palaces of India at Deccan Tiffin

P

op ups and supper clubs are the order of the day, or so it would seem. I created what might have been Brighton’s first ever pop up restaurant many years ago during the Brighton Festival. I had been challenged by the boss, one Latest Bill, to follow his lead of opening Brighton’s smallest venue in his sitting room, but opening Brighton’s smallest restaurant in mine. I lived back then in Preston Street and crazily took on the challenge, opening my doors for nine times in May and serving an extensive set menu of six courses with matched wines. It was great fun, well received and exhausting. I am often asked why I do not open a restaurant of my own and the answer is simple, too much hard work and no time to do what I love, which is dine out in other people’s restaurants. I was recently introduced to an extraordinarily good cook by another great cook, Kanthi Thamma of Curry Leaf Cafe. His friend is Priya Deshingkar, and my word, can she cook. Priya has launched a supper club called Deccan Tiffin in her Hove home and with a group of food loving friends we went along to find out more – and ‘more’ was the word of the evening, as there was more and more food as the evening unfolded and it was all very moreish. The evening focused on dishes from Indian palaces, so ‘rich’ was the next key word. We started with a Lamb Shorba – a lightly spiced soup from the Mughlai kitchens of Delhi. It was an amazingly fragrant soup perfumed with sandalwood, a new experience for me – the man that loves new food experiences – and it was served with a

crips Indian biscuit that was equally exciting. Next a chaat course. I loved this as it took me back to my student days and the bhel pooris of Tooting. Gol Gappe is a classic dish from Old Delhi and the stuffed round puris were garnished with pomegranate seeds and a tamarind and jaggery chutney, then drizzled with pepper water – yum. There were three but I could have eaten thirty, at least. Next Shahi Chicken Tikka – a kebab course of pieces of chicken breast in a saffron and cream marinade served with a mint and coriander chutney. This was exceptionally succulent, and vibrant with fresh spice and herbs. So on to the main course – yes, all so far had been a lead up to the star event. And what a star, Dum Ka Teetar, a whole partridge slowcooked in a gravy of poppy seeds and almonds, as prepared in the kitchens of the Awadhi rulers of Lucknow. Now this was a revelation, the slow cooked game fell from the bones but had lost none of that unique flavour and the almond and saffron infused sauce could have been served solo, it was that good. With it came kachumbar, a

fresh salad, a raita dressed with tempered spices in hot oil, fragrant basmati pulao and naan breads. It was amongst the best dishes I have ever eaten and unlike so much game bird served on the bone, it was easy to eat. For dessert we had a traditional rice kheer with cardamom, saffron and cashews (that’s a posh, very posh, rice pudding). After this we were offered ginger chai or South Indian kapi, a sweet frothy coffee that I love. Throughout we drank our own wines and beers, a good experience as we had taken along a selection that we were all keen to try. Supper clubs are fun and you do get to meet interesting new people, but I think this was an exceptional experience and we were privileged to be trying Indian dishes of the very highest pedigree. Priya is a busy professional lady but cooking is her passion and that passion glows in her delightful food. I will happily return and I urge you to try it too, as she is planning a series of future culinary experiences in her own home. You will find Priya’s Deccan Tiffin events on the website tabl.com where you can also book.

BRIGHTON’S ARTY

FILM

Jessica KellgrenHayes

Alison Krog

A SHORT WALK COALITION CHALLENGE FILMS FROM BRIGHTON STATION ndependent filmmaking can be a very worthy career (bringing hidden issues to the public, celebrating unknown communities, making art for the sake of creativity…) but it can also be a very difficult one. From long shoots to scraping together a budget or even just finding a way to try expensive camera equipment before buying, it helps to not be alone. Forming a production company with friends can be a great way of starting out with some support but, equally, it’s likely you’ll all be in the same boat when it comes to experience. Which is where a larger organisation, involving people of different ages and backgrounds within the industry, can really be of use. The Brighton Filmmakers Coalition was formed in 2008 and originally was a way for independent film makers in the city to come together, socialise and trade information, advice or equipment, but quickly banded together to make a film – William Ranieri’s Meat, which was recently screened on LatestTV as part of FilmFest on 8. The Coalition then evolved to monthly film challenges. From filming a short within 48 hours – conceptualizing on Friday night, shooting on a Saturday and then editing to screen on a Sunday evening – to making a 10 minute film from just 30 seconds of footage. From its roots as a free networking and resource group for Brighton filmmakers the coalition has gone on to create some truly creative short films. A good number of these films can be seen on this week’s FilmFest,

If you’re an aspiring filmmaker then pop along to the next meeting of the BFC – they have now banded together with Shooters in the Pub, the national community group for those working in the film or television industry. On the first Monday of every month you will find the group in the bar at the Duke of York’s, preparing for their next exciting project. Remember though, there are twenty-two times more viewings of films on television than there are in the cinema, so if you really want to get your name and your films known, TV is the way to go!

hen you live in Brighton, its architectural landmarks become part of your daily life. And as an extreme commuter (two and a half hours each way to work on a good day), I’ve developed a love / hate relationship with Brighton Station. (So it takes a lot to make me look on it fondly.) But Janet Brooke’s Ticket to Ride, shown here, captures its sense of place so perfectly that it’s impossible to respond Jay Collins with anything but utter appreciation of the engineered elegance underpinned by bygone romance. Specialising in urban landscapes, Janet expresses the essence of our many faceted city in linocuts and screenprints that never resort to cliché. Over the past five years, since launching Brighton’s Arty, I’ve also come to appreciate that Brighton artists have an uncanny ability Vincent Donlin to translate the beauty of the everyday into captivating studies. Heading down from the station, Trafalgar Street may seem an unlikely muse. But for painter Vincent Donlin it provides the inspiration for one of his irrepressibly characterful Brighton scenes. Vincent prefers to work with “the putrefying fecundity of oil paint”, and the rich layers he paints build up a sense of the unique atmosphere and shades of dark and light that colour North Laine life. Just a few steps down the street, The Great Eastern pub and Rare Kind demonstrate the skills of award-winning local artist Jay Collins, whose paintings and prints show Brighton in all its aspects – from the sea to the Downs, from the backstreets to the Georgian facades – in oil gouache ink and wash, wood and lino cut. So you see ... no matter how far you have to travel away each day, it’s worth it just to come home for the great art on your doorstep.

VERY GOOD CHEER

Merry Christmas! Now ... welcome back to the fold and head out to the best stand-up night all year

M

erry Christmas! All the happiness and good wishes to you, as we all break up from work for a few days – or a few weeks – to dash around the country to see loved ones, deliver gifts, eat too much and get one step closer to embracing and owning the ‘dad dancing’ we’ve been enjoying in the comfort of our family homes. After sinking into the sofa so much you’ve found ‘old money’ in your limb creases, look forward to the time when you return to your own home, your own pals, and a most awesome night of comedy. Comic Boom always has a great vibe to it, with a nationally recognised top quality headliner (past showstoppers have included Sarah Millican, Nick Helm, Hal Cruttenden, Iain Sterling, Seann Walsh and more), as well as a selection of hand-picked support slots made up of up-and-coming comedic talent from across the country, but with at least a couple based locally. As such, it’s a monthly safe pair of hands at Komedia, presenting a friendly and respected comedy night at the end of each month of both the next big things and those already appearing on television and radio. And then there’s the December Comic Boom, which takes it to

another level entirely. As a hot bed of comedy talent and appreciators it has long been said by comedians that Brighton is a favourite destination for them to come to play. There’s something of a community, and never is this more apparent than at December’s Comic Boom. Turn up with friends or turn up on your own, it’s a warm welcome all round as everyone still has their family Christmas buzz on, with added ‘yay!-I’m-home!’ sprinkles. It’s just the most magical night. Not least because in recent years there’s even been a real danger of snow obstacles en route to give it that extra winter party zest. This year’s event will have the everbrilliant Zoe Lyons headlining proceedings (hopefully going into delightful detail about the excesses of the season, as she does so well), with Mark Simmons on MC duties, and a smorgasbord of great support acts, as well as rumours of a special guest dropping in. So, in conclusion; Merry Christmas to you. and once you’re done Christmassing, welcome home and come and join the fun. It’ll be a blast.

aking music based on their favourite films and books, The Retrospective Soundtrack Players’ story is far from ordinary. Originally beginning as a two man concept project by two of indie-folk outfit The Dawn Chorus, the duo won a competition through Xtra Mile Recordings in August 2010 to have their track ‘Real Cool Hand’ featured as the B-side to Frank Turner’s single ‘Try This At Home’. Following on from this unexpected success, chief songwriter Kyle Evans then began to gather together a collective gaggle of musicians from the thriving Hampshire music scene – including

3 Tenek No Time For Fighting (Jab edit) members of The B of the Bang and All The Shapes – and the 12-legged country/folk/punk beast The Retrospective Soundtrack Players was born. Now, they've gone completely off-piste with It's A Wonderful Christmas Carol, a bundle of seasonal songs – all originals – such as ‘I'm Sleeping This Christmas’, ‘It's A Wonderful Life’, ‘Every Time A Bell Rings An Angel Gets Its Wings’, ‘The Ghost of Christmas Past (I'm A Coward)’ and ‘No Man Is Poor Who Has Friends’. Borrowing themes of loneliness, greed, poverty and eventual redemption from the classic works of Charles Dickens and Frank Capra, the band have emerged with a joyous album that

showcases their storytelling skill. On the surface they look like they could be a joke or novelty band, but actually all they have done is take famous works of art as a basis to write pretty damn cool music, with folk, country and indiepunk flavours to the fore. It's A Wonderful Christmas Carol has just been released on the Xtra Mile Recordings label, home to the likes of Frank Turner, Brighton's Chris T-T and Ben Marwood, who all provide vocals on the album. Also on the bill is Tom Williams of Tom Williams and the Boat, playing a solo set, and the altcountry four piece Salter Cane. The Brunswick, Thursday 18 December, 8pm, £7

CAUSING A(N OCULUS) RIFT A CHRISTMAS CANON Greg Marshall, quite frankly, cannot contain his excitement

Science & technology at Portslade Aldridge Community Academy

LATESTWRITES

LATESTWRITES

ith two weeks to go until the big day (at time of writing), I finally feel it is appropriate to mention Chrimbo. Often stated “it’s for the kids really”, the big child in me selfishly refuses to let them have all the fun, as I get a tad overexcited at the festive fun to be had. Though the aforementioned statement is also quite true – I no longer dare to hope to open the Millennium Falcon or the new Transformer toy as an adult, instead resigned to the fact that I will receive some socks and smellies as usual. But had anybody seen me today, they may have very well mistaken me for an eight year old on Christmas morn. Today Santa bought toys! By ‘Santa’ I mean, of course, our studio guest, and by ‘toys’ I refer to the awesome Oculus Rift. Yes, here to give us a try on the futuristic racing game Radial-G, our guest Sam had brought in the latest in virtual reality head wear, and you could cut the excitement with a knife! I had been lucky enough to try the Oculus Rift on two prior occasions, once on a simulated bike ride and secondly on an indie release so overwhelmingly poor that it didn't even make the cut for the segment on the show. Here, though, was a bone-fide game, designed to showcase the excellent gaming peripheral for fully peripheral gaming. To say that there was a bit of excitement amongst the crew would be underselling it. Adam our visual mixer and Brad our sound engineer actually briefly wrestled to get a go, whilst Kat our stand-in production manager braved the motion sickness she received the first time she tried the Oculus for a chance to go again. We were fortunate that one of the games creators was on hand to talk on air, as playing the game with the cameras rolling led to a rare occurrence for Jim and I – an almost complete bewildered silence! Still, I realise there will be no chance of one appearing in my Christmas stocking, not least because they haven't been released yet, but I have already planned to be good for Santa for the whole of next year in preparation for the Christmas after!

here have been at least two very special people born on Christmas Day who have helped to shape the history of our world – one of which was Sir Isaac Newton. Along with gravity, Newton also discovered that white light is made up of the different colours of the rainbow, and he invented the reflecting telescope. He also developed the three laws of motion: – An object will remain in a state of inertia unless acted upon by force. – The relationship between acceleration and applied force is F=ma. – For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton ensured that Britain was placed firmly ahead of the game for the Industrial Revolution that followed, but for this to happen Britain required sharp thinking entrepreneurs and engineers to adopt and apply the new found knowledge. It’s good to see that at Riccardo Engineering, Britain is still ahead of the game. Thank you to them for showing us around their facilities and inspiring our students on a recent visit. Newton’s mathematical genius utilized Copernicus’ heliocentric theory (stating that the earth moves around the sun) to glean the underlying truths and laws of the universe. Halley then used Newton’s equations to predict that a comet seen in 1682 would return in 1758. As predicted, Halley's comet was sighted in the night sky on Christmas Eve and gave final proof to the heliocentric theory (saving a lot of heretics from being burnt at the stake). Newton was, however, a deeply religious man. It took the Newton discovered Catholic Church until 1992 to that white light is admit that the heliocentric theory was correct and to repeal made up of the the ruling of the Inquisition different colours of against Galileo! It’s great news also that our the rainbow own ‘BrightStars’ came second in the ‘Designing a Settlement in Space Competition’ at Imperial College London. Showing true British resilience, they intend to return next year ... to win it!
