You could hear them well before you could you could actually see them. Dressed in colourful Rio De Janeiro inspired outfits, the samba bands and processional troupes that usually bring the carnival to Brighton’s streets at the annual Kemp Town Carnival made their way along Brighton’s seafront yesterday morning. Starting at The Tempest Inn at 11 am, the first group made its way along the seafront with a group of dancers showing their best samba moves.

Only a few hundred metres further, things were getting hot and sweaty on the Basketball courts.

As part of this year’s Brighton Summer Madness, the city’s female basketball players were competing against each other on the court, having people stop and quickly pick a team to cheer for.
