Activities update from our Centre

Despite the current challenges due to Covid19, our members have been very active in their projects:

Dr Marcus Winter’s collaborative Discover Brighton work with QueenSpark Books, Brighton & Hove’s community publisher is now live.

 

Discover Brighton is a new website with unique history walks you can access via your phone as you wander around the city. Created by volunteers and covering all aspects of the city’s history, the material is taken from QueenSpark Books’ four latest books.
Take a pleasant stroll along the seafront to hear about the West Pier in its heyday and strange things hauled up in fishing nets; Discover what it was like to be gay in the 1950s and 60s and what life was like in the city during the War; Explore Brighton’s lost theatres, cinemas and shops, and hear from those whose ‘slum’ homes were demolished to make way for Churchill Square; Visit the city’s alternative spaces, peek into the terraced homes of the rich and poor, and discover Brighton’s unsung heroes.
The website is part of the Archives Alive project, supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund, and involved technical consultancy work by Marcus Winter from the Centre for Secure, Intelligent and Usable Systems at the University of Brighton.
