Poster DB-2Dr Blighty Brighton Festival lunchtime event (Free) –

Talk and Q & A with Artistic Director of Nutkhut, Ajay Chhaabra who discusses Dr Blighty, an ambitious new project inspired by an untold story of the First World War, remembering an unexpected episode in Brighton’s history when the Royal Pavilion Estate became a military hospital for wounded Indian soldiers.

Author of new novel Belonging, Umi Sinha will read from the book moving from the darkest days of the British Raj through to the aftermath of the First World War. The story is a compelling and finely wrought epic of love and loss, of race and ethnicity, of homeland – and of belonging.

This will be followed by an author book signing.

All welcome
