Things to do This Weekend 24th-25th October
Only one week until Halloween!! Next weekend will be packed full of fun and spooky things to do, but what’s on this weekend? A lot, apparently. Here are some of the events going on in Brighton this weekend.
The Secret Festival: The Secret Festival is a secret no more! Taking place this weekend at Patterns, The Secret Festival is all about celebrating local and up and coming bands, as well as arts and various other stalls with visual arts films, henna tattoos and more importantly, a raffle. With bands playing across the two days and a secret headline act on the Sunday, it’s worth a look. The headline act is still secret, but ‘dropped like a pipe-bomb onto the British rock scene’ and are from Wolverhampton. Any guesses? No, me neither. But it will definitely be worth going. Bands such as Big Society, Pale Honey and Native People are playing over the weekend. Find out more here
Sci-Fi Film Weekender: Taking place tonight and tomorrow, release your inner geek with the Sci-Fi weekender as part of the City Reads event. Films such as Starman and Attack of the Bodysnatchers are being shown at One Church in Brighton. It also features an alien photo booth, stonebaked pizzas and of course, popcorn.

Art Junky: The affordable art fair is taking place at the Open Market on Saturday, combining aspects of a quirky jumble sale and a celebration of local artistic talent showcasing crafts, artwork and vintage treasures. This, as well as other stalls, the regular stalls and a café, it’s sure to be a nice visit, and you might find some bargains!
Black History Family Fun: This month is Black History Month, as you may have read in a previous bjournal article and this Sunday there is a Family day that provides educational and fun activities for children to teach them about the rich Black history. Workshops, exhibitions, story-telling, music and dance activities are taking place, ensuring it will be a fun day as well as greatly educational.
