A couple of weekends ago, my friend Rachael and I decided to check out the Brighton Artbox cafe, the UK’s first dedicated character themed cafe. The current theme is Pusheen which I think is staying until the end of October, before a new character comes along!
When I was younger, I absolutely loved The Crystal Maze; especially the tasks where people had to solve cryptic clues to find the crystals 🙂 When escape rooms became popular, I vowed that I’d go and try some out, but I never got round to it 🙁
So when the lovely people at Handmade Mysteries got in touch and asked if I wanted to try out one of theirs, I jumped at the chance to give it a go!!
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the soft launch of their lastest cocktail bar in Brighton. Located at the bottom of West Street and attached to PRYZM, it honestly feels a million miles away from the usual connotations of “just another West Street bar”. For those of you not from Brighton, think of that one street in your town where you never want to go down at night because it’s full of clubbers, people throwing up and girls dropping chips all over the floor while trying to pull their knickers out of their bums. Just sayin’.
I was kindly given VIP tickets to attend the Foodies Festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend, so naturally I took my Brighton bestie, Rachael, with me. We headed down on the Sunday, even though we knew it was going to rain that afternoon.
Held on Hove Lawns (in East Sussex) from Saturday 29 April to Monday 1 May (bank holiday), the Foodies Festival is back and it’s been billed as the biggest food festival in the UK. I’m giving my lovely readers the chance to win one of 5 pairs of tickets for the weekend (yup, the whole three days!).
