What’s the best thing about Brighton?
The sea. I love living here because I get to look at the sea every day – I can see it from my bed – how amazing is that! I grew up in north London and seeing the sea was very much restricted to holidays and rare day trips (I came down here for the first time on a Network Day when, as a kid, you could buy a rail ticket anywhere in Network Southeast for £1) but always in summer and mostly when the weather wasn’t too bad.

International Women’s Day

8th March is International Women’s Day. To celebrate this year we’ve caught up with the founders of a couple of Brighton based women’s projects to talk to them about their work as well as their experiences in the Brighton music industry. Bex Fidler is one of the founders of Miss Represented, but also used to put on the Spectrum nights at the Dome and sings in a Blues & Soul group. Jo Bramli and Bee Adamic are the founders of MAMI – Jo makes electronic music on her own (and will be supporting Ulrich Schnauss at St Luke’s on 22nd March) as well being part of Fröst and The Larsens and a tutor at one of the local music colleges. Bee is one of the founders of Liberty PR and has run the Girl Power stage at the Great Escape for the last few years and has run other live music nights around Brighton for many years.
