10169252_10151972202000216_115220220947594809_nStrike a Light will be off to this lovely new Brighton Fringe Festival event this weekend. Organised by a set designer who has worked for brilliant theatre company DreamThinkSpeak, it promises to be a creatively exciting and quirky event!

“If you go down in the woods today…”

Visit our little house on the edge of the woods and escape the bustle of city life.

Inside: an assortment of artisans’ work including glass, recycled jewellery, painting, photography & ceramics.

Outside in a hidden woodland: a thought provoking environmental art installation for all ages, questioning humanity using curiously familiar creatures!

Stop a while for tea and cake round the fire. Then wander through the trees to find a veritable menagerie of mysterious beasties.

10th, 11th, 17th & 18th May

11.30am to 4.30pm

46 Golf Drive, BN1 7HZ
