Days Out in Brighton - Constable and Brighton exhibition

Nothing here for a painter but the breakers - and the sky, was the first thing I noticed as I entered the gallery for a private viewing of the new Constable and Brighton exhibition at Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.

The solitary quote in beautiful handwriting spread itself high above eye level, above the line of sketches and paintings that flowed across the centre of the walls. Painted in an off-white colour, the quotation glimmered against the backdrop of rich slate-grey.

Days Out in Brighton - Hotel du Vin Afternoon Tea

For a perfect afternoon tea, you need 1) a beautiful setting 2) great company 3) a pot of tea 4) plates of sweet and savoury bite size treats and 5) the option of champagne. Afternoon tea is, after all, a truly decadent way to spend a lingering afternoon.

Days Out - Brighton Festival 2017

May is less than a month away so it's about time I mentioned this year's Brighton Festival. Known as one of Europe's leading arts festivals, they commission artists and companies to produce innovative work such as the amazing light show by Dr Blighty. This year there will be 146 events covering music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature and debate. With a number taking place outside, as well as some designed with families in mind and others that are free, the choice is pretty diverse.

Stay in Brighton - Malmaison Cocktails and Canapes

It may not have been my first visit to a Mal but it certainly was the jolliest. Thanks to LDN Meet Up a happy band of bloggers and plus ones were invited to check out the brand new Malmaison in Brighton Marina.

Sunday Brunch - Sugardough Brighton and Hove

It's the blog post I've been meaning to write for years. Since 2011 probably. Perhaps it needed a long time to percolate, although the bakery itself needed no time to win me over.

Days Away - Foodie Friday from Shrewsbury

When visiting somewhere new it's always good to get a tip off for the buzziest place in town. In Shrewsbury after walking through its centre on a Saturday night, I can confidently say we had found it.
