The alt city guide to Brighton

Brighton’s festival scene in May could be the reason for a spring visit but this creative and collaborative seaside town has inspirational art, music, food and drink on tap year-round

You might imagine that Brighton, the seaside resort and party town, and Brighton, the lefty, bohemian city (the only one in the UK with a Green MP), co-exist independently. Talk to local creatives, however, and that distinction blurs.

Brighton is about collaboration generated by the enthusiasm of the people running spaces here

Purple patch: touring Prince’s Paisley Park mansion in Minneapolis

A year on from Prince’s death, a visit to the muscial icon’s Minnesota home reveals he lived as flamboyantly as he performed
