In just one week this year's Love Supreme Jazz Festival returns to Glynde Place, East Sussex, for a three-day event jam packed with performances from a diverse cross section of jazz, soul and pop talent.

This year the festival presents performances from Motown legends The Jacksons, who are marking their 50th anniversary with a world tour, the multi-platinum-selling Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, who returns to the festival following her main stage performance in 2014, the Grammy-winning Robert Glasper Experiment, Brit Award-nominated vocalist Nao and Canadian trailblazers Bad Bad Not Good; as well as Corinne Bailey Rae, Christian Scott, Comet Is Coming and many more.

Set against the backdrop of Glynde Place in East Sussex, Love Supreme has continued to grow in popularity over the last five years thanks to its unique programme.

Southern Fail – The Musical, the big hit at this year's Brighton Fringe, arrives for one last performance this Saturday at Brighton's Sallis Benney Theatre.
Blue Remembered Hills Cast During Rehearsal

Identity Theatre Company are bringing Dennis Potter's groundbreaking play Blue Remembered Hills to the Brighton Open Air Theatre this July.

Two key cultural organisations are to unite to create a city-wide hub for creative and cultural learning.
Marie Ellis & Bill Griffiths in Proof, directed by Claire Lewis

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.

Having achieved critical acclaim and been nominated for numerous awards, Zoe Cunningham knows how fulfilling it is to achieve one's dream of finding success as an actor.
