Just a quick roundup of what happened this weekend. Nationally and here in Brighton!
Big Ben will be silent until 2021. From the 21st of August at noon the clocks hourly chimes will be paused for four years. This is because the building needs to undergo some restoration work. Members of public are being asked to gather in parliament square to hear the last bongs from Big Ben for the time to come.
Man United and won 4-0 against West Ham United this weekend. Romelu Lukaku scored twice on his league debut for United, alongside Paul Pogba who scored the last goal and Antony Martial scored earlier in the game.
The Cheese Festival this weekend turned out to be a huge disappointment according to people on twitter. Apparently there was little to no cheese, huge lines, and the stalls actually selling cheese had sold out almost immediately. If you are looking for some sort of refund check out this post.
A Perseid meteor shower was seen over the UK on Saturday night, giving star gazers the opportunity to spot shooting stars!
