What's On in and around Brighton & Hove

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 - The Blue Man
Join the conversation about building trust in the sceptical age of the internet with the team from Macmillan Cancer Support's new digital project team. Trust in the sceptical age of the internet can be an elusive thing. Whether you’re shopping or dating online, you need to know that what you see on screen is going to be what you get in real life. This is even more important when you’re providing a service for vulnerable members of the community. Macmillan Cancer Support will be talking about how we’ve created a strong sense of trust in our online services and communities, pop by for a bit and join in the discussion about digital reputation.
Friday 19 Sep 2014 - The Globe
Next Rags Revival Brighton Swishing - Clothes Swap Shop is back for September! We have booked down stairs in The Globe Brighton and we know there was issues with lighting! Soooo... we have got some massive lights which will stand up in the clothes area so you can see the goodies you are browsing (handy for a swishing event ;-) Bring your friends, bring your clothes, and any spare tokens you have knocking around! Swishing evenings - How does it work? Fear not, here at Rags Revival events you won't need your crash helmet and knee pads to fend people off from the best stuff! It works on a free flow basis and as different people come through the night the stock changes constantly! We are more of a have a glass of wine mull over the clothes kind of gals! You can bring up to 10 items - Clothes, Shoes, Hats, Bags, Jewelry (We do ask that you bring quality secondhand items - e.g. not those holey short shorts you have been wearing to the gym or the £2 tank you brought from Primark last year) The clothes DO NOT have to be vintage but of course would love them! Each item is worth one token - Simple! There is a changing screen and mirrors for those of you who are bashful too. When you arrive with your items you can either 1. Keep your clothes, find a table, get a drink, relax - look through the rails and make sure there are enough items that you want to swish/swap, before parting with those items that have been collecting dust at the back of your wardrobe. Then when you are ready you can literally swap each item and then we will put out your items for others! Also, this way you can keep some of your clothes you brought if you aren't quite ready to part with them yet and just swish a couple of pieces! 2. Hand in your items straight away and receive tokens and we will put your items straight out. These tokens you can spend to get any item already out or that comes later in the evening. If you have any tokens left, keep them! Come to our next event and spend them there! See you there!!
