White Night meets Halloween in Brighton
Typical Brighton – any excuse for a party! White Night is an all-night festival to mark the clocks going back. So it’s goodbye to British Summer Time, hello to those dark evenings. But at least White Night meant some choice opportunities, like the rare chance for a night-time visit to Brighton Pavilion. Plus around seventy other free events, mostly around the centre of the city. White Nighters joined Halloween-ers, with the “cultural quarter” rammed with pedestrians. Pity that the-powers-that-be didn’t go the whole hog and close the main streets in the city to traffic. Now that would have been worth celebrating.
