Behind the Scenes: The Old Courtroom

The perfect place for inspiring talks...

I confess: I have a huge crush on this building.

Tucked in an old side street opposite Brighton Dome Corn Exchange is the Old Courtroom, where the talks and lectures at Unwind will be held.

It oozes character, charm and history.

Inside, it's clean, airy and comfortable, with gorgeous wood panelling, a high ceiling and fabulous windows.

Behind The Scenes: Venue Hire

Today I did one of the most exciting and nerve wracking tasks so far - signed on the dotted line!

It's really happening ~ Brighton Dome Corn Exchange is booked for the 12th & 13th July 2014 for Unwind Brighton. The marketplace will be here, right in the heart of Brighton, just a pebble's throw from the beach, and surrounded by lots of cafes, pubs, quirky shops and if we're really lucky, sunshine!

You can read more about Brighton Dome and it's fascinating history here

Here's a peek inside...

I'll be working hard on a floorplan over the next few weeks!

Unwind In Brighton ~ July 2014

Could there be a more perfect place for a knitting festival than sunny, vibrant, Brighton?
It has to be done, really doesn't it?

So while I'm working hard behind the scenes to make it happen, I'll update this blog with news.
But for now, I'll leave you with this photo I took on Brighton beach last Summer ~ Salt in the air, big waves and about a billion pebbles...
