Events – they come in all sizes.
Brighton Dome staged a Heritage Day in September 2022, to show visitors the history of the Dome, and its current organisation and functions.
The day was very much designed as a family event, with activities for youngsters as well as tours of The Dome for groups of adults.
Not just the public areas – the tours took visitors into the depths of the building as well as backstage. One highlight (pun intended!) was a hands-on demonstration of The Dome’s lighting equipment.
There was a host of entertainers and guides to provide fun and information.
And racks and racks of costumes from Gladrags …
All sorts of characters, played by members of local theatre group Windmill Young Actors.
And of course, no history of Brighton would be complete without The Prince Regent …
Events – they really do come in all sizes. The Australian CasArt organisation staged a fashion show at The Old Market during the Brighton Festival, that lasted just over an hour. But what an hour! …
Pestival, a large exhibition about insects, filled the foyers and outside spaces of the Festival Hall in London for two whole days.
They even had a hugely oversized termite mound that visitors could walk through . . .
You could test your attractiveness to mosquitos, by putting your hand against a fine mesh cup set into a large perspex sphere containing the insects. Some people attracted dozens.
and they had an awful lot of bees . . .
