A NEW TYPE OF DINER

We offer incredible new versions of food and drink that you might find familiar. We have sodas made in house with some help from our centrifuge machine. They have around one tenth of the sugar of regular sodas. Our cocktails are crafted with loving care using house made essences, bitters and artisanal spirits. Some of our cakes have no added sugar. Some are completely dairy free. We are really proud of our velvety, house made, organic cashew and tiger nut milk blend.

Our coffee has to be tasted to be believed. We only use the best butter, virgin coconut oil (for our many non dairy/vegan creations) and extra virgin olive oil for dressing. Our tea is brewed in clean glass, to the perfect temperature.

Everything we have is completely free of gluten. That's right, everything. Even our house made sourdough, sweet bakes and our buttermilk pancakes. Our aim is excellence as standard. We make super food for super people.

Kemp Town Station Forecourt and entrance to Kemp Town Station in Coalbrook Road, which opened in 1869. The period is uncertain, but the vehicles seen suggest the 1950s. The introduction of trams and, later, motor buses caused a decline in passenger traffic with the result that the line closed in 1932, except for some goods traffic. The main station building was removed in 1973 and the Freshfield Industrial Estate is now on the site.

Q

Meet a local actor who’s currently filming Vindication Swim...

Local Person...Matthew Wyn Davies Matthew Wyn Davies lives near Brighton College and is an actor. He is currently filming Vindication Swim, about Mercedes Gleitze, the first English woman to swim the Channel, who was born in Freshfield Road. The film is directed by 19-year-old Elliott Hasler of Hove. How long have you lived in this area?

I moved here last Christmas so I’ve been in the area for about eight months. Who do you play in Vindication Swim?

I play a character called Corentin Charboneau. He is a French oarsman and he rows the pilot boat (“Popple”) that accompanies Mercedes across the Channel. He and his family know the waters very well and have always been on the sea. He believes that he knows the best route across the Channel. What are the challenges of filming by the sea?

The first thing that comes to mind is our first day of filming at sea. I suffered from very bad seasickness, which had never happened to me before, and I was a goner. Elliott Hasler managed to get the shots that he needed and I didn’t need to be in the frame for those shots, so it worked out OK in the end. Mike Skinner (who plays the doctor) recommended a specific brand of travel sickness pills (perhaps this was part of his Method acting in such a role?) and they’ve worked amazingly ever since. Have you got any more films planned?

At the moment I’m just working on Vindication Swim, but I am confident that there will be more projects in the pipeline soon as I am always looking out for new opportunities.

I also worked with Elliott earlier this year on a short film which is currently in post-production.

An exploration of 700 years of music...

Brighton Early Music Festival 2019 25th October to 10th November

The 2019 programme for the Brighton Early Music Festival is all about change and changing times.

Taking ‘Metamorphosis’ as its theme, the festival, which focuses on music written before 1800, presents 35 events in 11 different venues across the city this autumn and winter. From concerts for pre-schoolers, a community ceilidh and music from Handel’s oratorios to medieval music with a trance-style light show, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

St George’s Church, Kemp Town, hosts visiting Italian ensemble La Fonte Musica (26 October), as well as two staged works – Ceruleo’s Burying the Dead: a music theatre piece capturing London as seen through the eyes of Henry Purcell (31 October); and Fieri Consort’s play with music exploring the life of celebrated Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi (1 November). Early music group Ensemble Hesperi present a taste of 18th-century Scotland with Highland dancing in From Folk to Fashion: Dancing the Scottish Baroque (6 November). Another key venue is St Martin’s Church, Lewes Road, which is hosting seven festival concerts. Headline events here include the first public performance in modern times of Antoine Brumel’s complete Lamentations for Good Friday (25 October); the music of J S Bach dynamically re-coloured on

A great event for art lovers this October...

Sussex Art Fairs (East)

Brighton Racecourse, Freshfield Road, Brighton BN2 9XZ Following the success of our first event in May, our second event Sussex Art Fairs (East) takes place at Brighton Racecourse overlooking the coastline of Brighton, where 125 artists, galleries and collectives will come together to exhibit and sell 1000s of affordable artworks starting from £50 for prints and smaller works to over £5,000 for an outstanding masterpiece.

Taking place over three days, the event starts from 6pm on the Friday ‘Preview Evening’. Visitors will be able to chat with the artists and gallery owners whilst browsing their favourite artworks with drinks from our full bar and be the first to view exhibitors’ beautiful collections. The fair will then be open all weekend for visitors to find something to suit every budget and every type of art buyer.

Fair facilities include a full café serving teas, coffees and snacks and a bar serving refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks throughout the weekend. The venue is wheelchair accessible and has tidy toilet

facilities. All purchases will be wrapped by our specialist wrapping team ‘artPAKK’ located near the exit. In order to give back to the local community, Sussex Art Fairs will be collaborating with Sussex Wildlife Trust who will be offering original artworks for sale donated by our exhibitors with all profits going to the Trust. Be sure to visit their stand for an original bargain! Sussex Art Fairs is the perfect place to begin or add to your art collection, so come visit us this October for this special event. 

Friday 11th - The Preview Viewing (6pm to 9pm) £12 entry per person Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th - Open To The Public (10am to 6pm) - £6 entry per person each day (free entry for children under 12) For more information and for tickets, visit: www.sussexartfairs.co.uk
