Tuesday 23 Aug 2014 - Brighton Racecourse
Whether you're a fan of monster trucks, motorbikes, BMX or just general mayhem, the Extreme Stunt Show Live Arena is the place to be. Firstly check out the monster action where our very own trucks Extreme and Lil' Devil compete to prove they're the best car crushing monsters in Europe. 2013 was a very busy year for these monsters. Performing at over 150 shows during the summer meant they were in need of some long overdue TLC. The Extreme workshop has been busy over the winter months to make sure the trucks are ready to keep up with the grueling workout the drivers are going to put them through. Both still pulling 1500 horsepower and car-crushing to the max, these machines are primed and ready for action. Next up, our beloved Extreme FMX lads (freestyle Motocross) who love to tear it up with their death defying stunts including the can can, cliffhanger, lazy boy, kiss of death, nac nac, and superman to name a few. Prepare to be astounded as our very own Extreme BMX team, show you how it's done with excessive pedal power. Check out their bunny hops, barspins, 360s, tailwhips, flairs and of course the backflip. With performances from our firm favourites who are primed and ready for take-off, the Extreme Team are ready to showcase their tricks. Two wheel driving, fire stunts and just good old-fashioned chaos to take you all the way to the extreme edge. We can't wait to see you at one of our shows this summer, just make sure you bring plenty of enthusiastic energy and take advantage of the discount when you book in advance to guarantee your place!

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!!
