For an affordable night, and a house/electro soundtrack, head down to Patterns!

Brighton Easter Craft Fair. Saturday.
It’s that time of the month again. Pop down to the Friends Meeting House on Ship Street to experience the craft fair in all of its Easter glory.

Entry is free and the event runs from 11 am to 4.30 pm.
Brighton Pier. Saturday, Sunday, Monday.
Head down to the Palace Pier for some Easter fun for the whole family. With a cracking lineup in Horatio’s starting on Saturday afternoon with 80’s rock throwbacks Iron Tyger performing a selection of nostalgia fueled tunes. On Sunday boogie on down to some good old fashioned blues with rock n’ rollers The Catfish Kings. Rounding it off on Monday are female trio Violet, who will be playing a selection of era-defining hits from the 60’s through to the present day. Young children are well-catered for as well, with Mr Hoppy’s egg hunt on Easter Sunday from 2 pm onward.
