Hello and welcome back to Seagull Recommends! This will be the final Seagull Recommends until after Fringe Friday—are we all excited for the children's parade on Saturday?

Fringe Friday is working a little differently this year. Our reviews will be emailed out to paid subscribers every Friday, and will go on the website and be sent to free subscribers the following Monday.

If you come across anything coming up in the city that you think we should know about, let us know!

Seagull Recommends

🎶Gigs: This Thursday (and the first Thursday of every month), a traditional Irish session is held at the Ancient Mariner. The candles will be lit, great beers and wines will be pouring, and the kitchen will be open until 9pm (tickets (free)).

🎪Children's Parade: The Children’s Parade returns to open Brighton Fringe again! Groups of local schools have been exploring the theme 'Dream Again', whether that’s dreaming of a brighter future and a better world, or dreaming of something personal. Guest Director Frank Cottrell-Boyce explains this year’s dreamy theme as: ‘good dreams, bad dreams, day dreams, dream teams, sweet dreams… because, as the Monkees sang - we should all be daydream believers'. It kicks off from Jubilee Street at 10:30am on Saturday.

🎈Street Party: Norfolk Place street party this weekend at The Robin Hood! On Sunday from midday, expect local bands, DJ Steezawheelz, food from Ditch Brisket, face painting, an ale and cider festival, and more.

🍻Spiegeltent: Opening at 6pm on Friday, the Spiegeltent returns to Old Steine for this year's Fringe. SpiegelPub and Cocktail ArtBars are returning, and five shows are on that night including Aidan Sadler: Melody, Alfie Ordinary's House of Fun, and DJs in the SpiegelPub.

🛍️Market: This Sunday is One Garden's outdoor market, with arts, crafts, food, and lots more from local suppliers and artists.

🎟️Quiz: West Hill Community Quiz is this Tuesday, at West Hill Hall. Open to all comers, this Quiz does not take itself very seriously, although it is seriously good fun. The Quiz Setter even gives the participants clues! Doors open at 7:15pm, quiz starts 8pm. Entry is £1 and a donated raffle prize for the table.

🍱Food: Adam's been exploring the delights of London Road recently! He said:

The Pitta Nitta gozleme is really, really good. Very substantial lunch, you can share it between two people, it's only four quid, absolute bargain. It's like a calzone almost, but with a flatbread that's folded over and you can have stuff in it, usually spinach, feta, potato. It's really good. it's really really good.

Drink: He also tried out the Open Market:

Guru World Foods in the Open Market has an iced chai, it's very good, it has a delightful contrast because it's got a bit of a peppery or spicy kick to it which means you drink something that's cold and milky but it's got a bit of a 'Ooh!'.
