Exciting entertainment takes place all year round with an enviable supply of themed festivals. There's no shortage of food and drink festivals and the local produce is amongst the best in the UK with seafood from Hastings and ideal conditions for vineyards giving a unique flavour to any event.

May is festivals month in Brighton with arts, music and diverse culture celebrated in party style, but there's always something going on making it a popular destination for a day trip from London. Brighton is also renowned for a thriving comedy scene.
