The (Mini) Muddy Guide, What’s On 27 May – 3 June

With nominations flying thick and fast for the Muddy Awards I’ve been too busy notifying hopefuls to crank you out the full scale Muddy Guide this week, but here’s a slightly more compact and bijou version with a few things on my radar for the week ahead. If you’re looking for more family-friendly options for the coming week, check out my Half Term Guide.

28-29 May

One-days festivals Funk the Family and Funk the Format run on consecutive days in Hove Park with soul, Latin, funk, reggae, disco, hip hop and plentiful kids’s activities. The adult-only version is on the 29th. It’s £45 for a weekender ticket.

Also in a musical vein, how about some bank holiday jazz at Jeremy’s Restaurant in Borde Hill Garden? The meal with entertainment costs £40 per person for three courses.
