Hello and welcome back to Seagull Recommends! This one would be longer but our politics editor left his iPad in the bottom of his stashed-away bag, despite our editor explicitly asking him to bring it out. Men, am I right? Also, we're on holiday! Get off our backs!
This week we've got Girl Scout, London Philharmonic Orchestra, and more. Enjoy!
If you come across anything coming up in the city that you think we should know about, let us know!
🎶Gigs: Girl Scout is coming to Brighton!! If there's one thing our editor loves more than Scandinavian women in pop, it's four Scandinavian women in pop, especially when they're as good as this indie pop band. Fresh off the release of their second EP, Granny Music, they'll be at Patterns to close their tour tonight, joined by Coach Party. Seriously why are you still reading this? Why aren't you booking your ticket right now?
🎼Orchestra: London Philharmonic Orchestra make their long-awaited return this Sunday, performing a selection of Mozart and Beethoven pieces: The Marriage of Figaro, Mozart's Horn Concerto No.4, and Beethoven's Symphony No.5. You can read our review of their 2022/23 season finale here, and buy tickets here!
🎨Digital festival: Brighton Digital Festival, rebranded to Dreamy Place, returns to Brighton from Thursday to Sunday (19th-22nd). Dreamy Place showcases art installations, both from world-renowned artists and local talent, alongside conferences, workshops, outdoor film screenings and more. The organisers said:
It has been designed to capture the imagination while also tackling key issues surrounding the production, consumption and understanding of art, technology and immersive culture.
Dreamy Place asks us to explore ways in which we can narrow the digital gap caused by disadvantage and challenges us to rethink and reimagine how art and gaming can help our wellbeing.

Food: Our co-founder has a lunch spot for you:
The naan hut is very reasonably priced. A great lunch spot if you work in the London Road area. we went in there for lunch the other day and I had the hummus and falafel wrap and it was delicious. The sort of ideal style of falafel wrap which is to say absolutely packed with nice stuff that sort of healthy-ish, but also tastes delicious, very generous portions. I couldn’t finish it. There was so much of it, it was lovely.
Drink: William The Fourth is the perfect spot for an outside drink and some people-watching. We recommend whatever fruity beer they have on tap!
