Brighton & Hove has always been a city of radicals, free-thinkers and libertarians " but also rail workers, tradespeople, fishing families and more. Hear their stories on this tour through selected Sites of Special Socio-Historical Interest, where you can find out about the passions, the politics, the struggles and the smiles beneath your feet. The anarchist prince! The secret suffragettes! The racists defied! The birth of Brightons trades unions! All this and more... Whatever your views, come celebrate the lives they lived and the liberties they left us. Led by local storyteller and historian Jon Mason, and shaped in comradely cooperation with Brighton Trades Council. See the city streets in a new way: from the bottom up!As seen on Latest TV. (Interested attendees might also have the opportunity to provide feedback as part of Uni of Brighton PhD research, entirely at your own discretion.)

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
