It’s May already, and if like me you’re a resident of the amazing city of Brighton you’ll know that can only mean one thing – the festival is almost here. Each year the Brighton Festival runs throughout the month of May – well, three simultaneous festivals, that is, namely the original Brighton Festival, the Fringe Festival and the Artists’ Open House Festival. For those of you who don’t live here, the Artists’ Open House festival runs during the festival weekends and is a collection of venues – artists’ houses, many of them – that open to the public. On show in these venues/houses is the artists’ work – everything from traditional painting to street art and everything you can imagine in between.
So why am I wittering on about artists and festivals, you may wonder? Well because this year you can see and buy Rok Chix jewellery at an Open House venue in Hove, called Art @ All Saints (All Saints is a church, in case you were wondering). Since Rok Chix jewellery isn’t available in many shops it’s the ideal opportunity to browse through our baubles – and very handy if you’re in Brighton for the festival anyway. You can find All Saints church on the corner of The Drive and Eaton Road (or click here for a map).
It’s well worth a visit as the church itself is such an inspiring building and also because there will be 20 artists/craftspeople exhibiting there – so lots to see, including painting, photography, ceramics, textiles, lighting, glass, furniture and mixed media. Oh, and of course, jewellery.
So if you’re in Brighton this month, don’t just sit on the beach (though of course that’s a big part of the Brighton experience). Come and say hello – we’d love to see you there…
