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.
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.
It’s the last weekend of activities for Brighton City Read, which is themed around one novel a year – this year The Good Son by Paul McVeigh.
The Hawth in Crawley is putting on its first Acoustic Sunday with free music in the foyer from 1.00 pm till late. There will also be craft beer, cider and food available.
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.
Firle House reopens the same day with tours taking in the notable art, and access to the gardens. There’s also a new tearoom.
Touring West End hit musical Let it Be based on the hits of, you’ve guessed it, The Beatles, will stop in at Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre.
