Brighton Festival 2015 has announced that this year's Peacock Poetry Prize will have the theme of 'birds'; a subject chosen by its Guest Director Ali Smith.
It's a sign of a show's stature by the 'names' who come out to support it. In the case of Holiday On Ice's 70th anniversary show Platinum,at the Brighton Centre, both Jayne Torvill and Robin Cousins were pressing the flesh pre-performance in the VIP lounge.
Dublin comedy club goers would be excused for thinking clubs offer a solid diet of shouty,slightly crude young male comics. Funny, mostly, but a bit samey.
Hundreds of dancers from across the Brighton are warming up in preparation for Brighton and Hove Dance Active 2014. 
A funny fella with a brain as razor sharp as his wit - and don't you just love him for it - Jimmy Carr has honed his craft and now uses his audience as the backbone of his stand-up.
It's only in recent years that Alan Davies has returned to the stage as a  stand-up comic after a break of almost a decade-and-a-half.
John Bishop doesn't 'do jokes', his agenda, apparently, stretches no further than 'to make people laugh'. He's a comedian with heart, and despite his latest roadshow being a series ofone-man-sold-out arena shows, he's still an everyman who is able to connect with an audience whatever their collective numbers..
It's been claimed that one-time Never Mind The Buzzcocks presenter, Simon Amstell,started his TV career at Nickoledeon where he was fired for making pop stars uncomfortable, and that he then began presenting the Channel 4 show, Popworld - where he gained a huge following for his groundbreaking work in making pop stars uncomfortable!
Graham Fellows has a long-running reputation for innovative, offbeat comedy. From his brief brush with pop stardom - Jilted John's self-titled hit ("Gordon is a moron") - to John Shuttleworth, his razor sharp portrayal of a somewhat nerdish fictional singer-songwriter and radio presenter.
Both headliner Lee Mack and support Mike Gunn were able ride a wave of goodwill, at the Brighton Centre, on Sunday 28th October 2014.
Glyndebourne opera house has announced the winners of its 2014 Tour Art Competition, unveiling three, contemporary female artists of the future.
Following its successful pilot in spring 2014, Umbrella Club - Brighton Dome's membership club for children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their siblings and carers – is to be rolled out across performances (suitable for under 16s) for the Dome's autumn season.
