Sup Up Your Beer & Collect Your Waistcoats For The 'Make Time For It' Campaign

Brighton-based tailor Gresham Blake's bold and inventive take on traditional suits has generated interested worldwide, with an impressive list of clientele including Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim), Plan B, Steve Coogan and Ray Winstone among many others.

Blake is to to spend six weeks hand-crafting a bespoke waistcoat for Meantime's Make Time For It pop-up bar. 

The brewing company is spending the same six weeks brewing a bespoke beer, inspired by Blake"s craft and personality.

Earlier this year Meantime launched their nationwide "Make Time For It" campaign to celebrate the master craftsmanship of their brewers and the care and attention put in to every keg and bottle that leaves Meantime"s brewery. 

The through the line campaign is designed to highlight the abundance and quality of craftsmanship and innovation throughout the UK.

Gresham Blake said: "I started learning how to sew at the age of five and began tailoring and design work because I couldn't find what I wanted on the high street. 

"Experimenting is important to me; the mantra of our business is to bring personality and humour to what we produce."

This collaboration is the fifth of six across six key cities for the Make Time For Itcampaign. 

The exclusive items hand-crafted by each of the six craftsmen will form part of Meantime's Make Time For It pop-up bar, which will be unveiled at the London Riviera in October when the campaign reaches its conclusion.

TV channel Quest is to bring the campaign"s unique content to life. 

Quest are supporting Meantime in the production of six films, showcasing each craftsman handcrafting their unique works of art.

Riding the wave of success and universal critical acclaim for their most recent album, F.E.A.R, Marillion graced the stage at Brighton Dome last night (16/4/18) and served up an epic and confident display of prog.

Superorganism is a London-based, eight person collective of international musicians and pop culture junkies from Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the UK, who have, in just eighteen months, amassed a global fan base and acclaimed début album. 

Spymonkey's Stephan Kreiss will join Scottish actor Pauline Knowles in the world première of Problem in Brighton, a brand new alt-rock/pop pantomime written and directed by Brighton Festival 2018 Guest Director David Shrigley.

He's still the undisputed champion of Superbike; the most successful rider ever in the sport's history. Now Carl Fogarty is fifteen years into a retirement that has seen him be crowned King of the Jungle and trek across Patagonia, but, as for any former champion, giving up the sport that made him a household name has been no easy task.

It was always a pleasure for The Brighton Magazine to host The Beat's Dave Wakeling, when he performed in the city as part of the 3 Men & Black collective (alongside Jake Burns from Stiff Little Fingers and Pauline Black and Nick Welsh from The Selecter).

Singer/songwriter Sarah McQuaid, who recently played The Greys, in Brighton, has teamed up with award-winning filmmaker Brett Harvey for a music video/short film based on the poignant true story of Bill Conner, a father who lost his daughter and cycled 1,400 miles to hear her heart beating again in the body of its recipient. 

At the height of the Industrial Revolution, Falkirk's iron and steel industry bore the town three primary exports: carronades, pillar boxes, and buses. 

When people who have 'made it' are asked what they can thank for their transformation, few people would cite cancer, near poverty or isolation.

After setting up her label Seahorse Music to publish records by like-minded women and help make them more visible in a male-dominated industry, Bryde finished up her debut LP, Like An Island, flitting, between London and LA.
