Morten Harket’s not gay!

As straight as a butcher's hook

As straight as a butcher's hook

Morten Harket, 80s hunk and lead singer of a-ha will be visiting Brighton this week. Although it’s unlikely he’ll be rubbing shoulders with Brighton’s bears or camping it up – sadly the 40-something pop pinup is married and will be too busy performing at the Brighton Centre.

He’s just one of several star turns turning up this month. Have a look below at who’s on, or just check out this promo pic if you still have a place in your heart for Morten – he’s liking you…

Pre-Xmas music madness

Picture 2

Next Saturday and Sunday Lionel Shriver, Bonnie Greer and Ali Smith are leading Storyville Brighton’s first ever literature festival.

The intellectual heavyweights are joined by a tribe of other writers in a lit fest running at the Brighton Dome.

First up its New Voices, chaired by Lisa Holloway.  Midday on Saturday aclaimed writers Emma Henderson, Justine Kilkerr and Emily Mackie will be reading and discussing their work.Picture 1

After an afternoon of talks and readings Bonnie Greer will be reading from her new book Obama Music.

On Sunday there’s another New Voices session. Later in the day Polly Tonybee is hosting Love, Loss and Tragedy across Continents and to finish it off there’s a ‘meet the author’ session with Ali Smith.

There’s a lot more on than I have time for here, for more information, bookworms and lit lovers look here.

The oldest and funkiest are visiting Brighton

This weekend the funkiest, healthiest, sleekest movers are making their way to Brighton. We’re talking about the Future Car Challenge, which sees some of the smartest, eco-friendly cars drive to Brighton from London.Print

They’ll be arriving on Saturday having driven here on 3 drops of fuel or a full charge of electricity. Makes you think what those fools in their 4×4s are doing driving into Brighton every weekend. They are big, they are hard when they hit kids, and they are definitly not clever!

So take some inspiration from the next generation and keep an eye out for our eco-rollers this weekend.

On Sunday its the turn of the oldies, in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run. We can forgive these old motors for coughing and spluttering their way through town, but when it comes to buying new cars that pollute our streets, no excuses.

Just who are the Dining Dykes?

Well, to start with, they don’t just eat out with each other… . This group of ladies that lunch also gets out clubbing, pubbing and running events in the community.Picture 12

Dinning Dykes now attracts ladies from their 20s to their 50s creating a space where its members can meet, un pressured about conforming – or giving a damn what goes on in ‘the scene’.

Members get discounts of local businesses and are always doing their bit for charity.

And they are based in London as well as Brighton – and importantly they are hooked up to

So with Niche Girls and GayGirlNet it looks as if the lesbian community has got its social media in order.

Feeling peckish?
