The Brighton Festival is in full flow and despite the unseasonably cold weather people are flooding into the city to join in the fun. The North Laine was throbbing with visitors on Saturday as the Streets of Brighton event rose toward its climax.
Street performers included characters on stilts (including a teddy boy band), a pirates’ ship towed by a cabin boy in a very fetching little sailor suit and live bands of all denominations in and around the city centre.
The activities culminated in spectacular evening events performed by notable organisations such as the World Famous Company and BrightFX - Ignite
This year’s event notched up eleven consecutive years of the festival, which is now well and truly established as one of the leading street arts festivals in the UK.
The Streets of Brighton festival began on Thursday 12th finishing on Saturday 14th May in outdoor venues across Brighton & Hove. The events are produced by Zap Art and are funded by the Brighton Festival, Arts Council England South East and Brighton & Hove City Council.
