Brighton Festival kicked off last weekend with the ever brilliant and joyous Children's Parade, and the equally marvellous and completely enchanting Jardin Flambeau which if you ever get the chance to see, you must, must go! One of our lovely city parks was transformed with fire lanterns and sculptures which was a truly magical spectacle. Both of these events were 'Outdoor', which is, I believe, Brighton Festival at it's best, and really helps to bring the city alive and thousands of people together. So this weekend we're looking forward to more outdoor fun and our hot Festival tip is, without a doubt ..... Gramoulinophone. Get over to the Pavilion Gardens (one of my favourite venues for the Festival) on Saturday or Sunday this weekend and let these French Street Theatre supremo's take you on their magical mystery journey. It looks absurd, surreal, and lots of fun ... I can't wait. It's free, and I predict this will be the one everyone will be talking about next week! Roll on le weekend and see you down there.
