What’s Happening in Brighton & Hove and Surrounding Areas Issue #1

19 May 2017 Posted by: Guest blogger


 Welcome to my first issue of the local Brighton & Surrounding Areas KalliKids newsletter!

As we are nearing the summer months I look forward to sharing with you, local events and activities and seeing you there. Keep in touch with my local Facebook page too for more information and pictures.

My husband and I have started preparing our garden for spending some quality time in the sun with our daughter, Isabella and not forgetting Nero, our very energetic Labrador puppy! Getting all green fingered with the gardening tools out we are enjoying our family time together.

The annual Brighton Fringe Festival is now upon us, lots of family friendly activities going on, from the 5th May until the 4th June.


We had a great time at the annual St Ann’s Wells Spring Festival in Hove on the weekend and the sun was shining brightly for the crowds.

It was a great day meeting with friends, hearing some talented local bands, eating fabulous vegetarian Indian Street food amongst visits to other stalls and delights on offer for the whole family. We had so much fun as we very much look forward to the festival each year!

the weather

The weather next week is expected to be getting warmer creeping up to 19 degrees! With a mix of some sunshine and showers throughout the week so you may need to put those wellies by the front door! Saturday 27th May is looking good! 17 degrees and mostly sunny. Choose your activities wisely and make the most of the weather.
