Metro Bank, the first new bank in the UK to be granted a banking licence since the 1860s, has launched its 33rd UK branch at the corner of North Street and Western Road.
The bank always locates new branches on corner sites and the opening will be accompanied by two days of celebrations with stilt walkers, face painting, manicures and dancing dogs.
The branch distinguishes itself from others by, amongst other things, opening from 8am - 8pm Monday - Friday, 8am - 6pm Saturday and 11am - 5pm on Sundays and bank holidays.
Regional director Kevin Walker said: “Our role is to make banking simple and convenient to all our customers and we're delighted to bring the people of Brighton a bank that is dedicated to providing amazing service and convenience.
“We look forward to welcoming both personal and business customers to the banking revolution.”
Metro Bank launched in July 2010 with a stated focus on providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience to its customers.
