New British Science Festival Grant Scheme Announced For Brighton Community Groups

The British Science Association is providing grants of £500 to community groups/organisations in Brighton that work directly with audiences who are traditionally underrepresented and currently not engaged in science activity. 

They want to empower and support community groups to run their own science activities as part of theBritish Science Festival, enabling new local audiences to engage with science.

There will be interest in supporting events that demonstrate how science is a wider part of culture. 

There will also be priority to events that are embedded in the local community and ones that will have legacy, providing a way for those involved to continue their engagement with science.

Christina Fuentes-Tibbitt, Engagement Manager at The British Science Association, said: 

"With our British Science Festival Community Grants we want to empower and support local groups in Brighton who might not otherwise engage with the British Science Festival. 

"We want everyone in Brighton to join the Festival, and these grants will allow local groups to take ownership over the activities and make science something that"s relevant and interesting to them."

This year the British Science Festival will be jointly hosted by the University of Sussexand the University of Brighton between 5-9 September 2017, transforming the city of Brighton into a vibrant celebration of science, engineering and technology.

The deadline to apply is Friday 26th May 2017 and applicants must complete a short online form.

In Chicago, 25-year-old Catherine (Marie Ellis) has put her college education on hold to care for a dying father, Robert (Bill Griffiths). Robert was an academic genius, specialising in complex 'beautiful and elegant' mathematical proofs, now suffering from both loss of focus and madness.

Brighton's Brighthelm Centre Auditorium played host to an unsurpassed night of wrestling. Riptide Wrestling not only exceeded expectations from the standpoint of a company running it's first event, it also blew away any independent shows I have seen in the last twenty years. 

Hundreds of epic shows, memory lapses, unexplained injuries, one year long detour with Iggy Pop and multiple Grammy nominations later, Queens Of The Stone Age re-emerge from the desert newly scarred and somehow strangely prettier with lucky seventh album, Villains.

A Hard Day's Month is a book as much about teendom as it is about The Beatles. It's about growing up, generation gaps, mortality, friendships, experimentation, change, independence, love and loss. It's very much the Absolute Beginners of its generation.

As part of a nationwide series of events in honour of Jo Cox MP, local charity Brighton & Hove Impetus is organising a community picnic in Palmeira Square, Hove, on Saturday 17th June from 12-2pm.

Thirty years ago a band from Liverpool achieved three number one hits in the charts and followed it with a million selling début album. Frankie Goes To Hollywood exploded in 1984 and imploded in 1987 leaving Relax, Two Tribes and The Power Of Love as their epitaph.

It's been 43 years since Kraftwerk changed the musical landscape with their hugely influential Autobahn album in 1974. 

While its primary purpose is to serve as a developmental division for WWE, NXT has come to be viewed by wrestling writers and fans as its own distinct entity - a place for genuine wrestling fans to view up-close-and-personal the next generation of stars.

The 51st Brighton Festival - with recording artist, poet, playwright and novelist Kate Tempest as Guest Director - came to a storming conclusion. 

Ultimately, there are so few roles for women, especially queer women in theatre, so Mama Koogs Arts wanted to see more roles created and thus they began to research the untold stories of several women throughout history.
