Brighton events to look out for this year are the Brighton Pride, Brighton Fringe and Paddle Round the Pier. But that’s for later when summer is in full swing. First is the Brighton Festival 2018 with music, theatre, comedy and dance performances led by guest director and visual artist David Shrigley.

Travelbag’s Brighton shop on 65 Western Road, has been helping the larger Brighton community get out and see the world. What the Brighton Festival does is bring the world to Brighton by bringing cultures from around the world to the south coast of England.

This year, things kicked off with the Children’s Parade in the start of May (as they always do) and with the weather set to stay dry and plenty more lined up; it’s only going to get better.

So what’s on in Brighton this weekend? Read on to find out our top picks of what’s happening.

 

Attractor

Travelbag is excited to be sponsoring Indonesian music duo Senyawa, an experimental band from Java and Australian dancers Lucy Guerin, Gideon Obarzanek and Dancenorth. Senyawa perform on self built instruments made form bamboo and traditional agricultural tools from rural Indonesia. Indonesian folk influences and contemporary guitar techniques blend the old world with the new in their singular style. The dance interpretation builds momentum with the musical crescendo, building energy into wilder and wilder expression of movement. Afterwards, take a look at Travelbag’s Bali holiday packages and go and see Indonesian way of life for yourself.
