Brighton Open Air Theatre – Pantomime fun in an outdoor theatre

If you’re after a socially distanced slice of festive fun, look no further then the two pantomimes being held at the gem that is Brighton Open Air Theatre, which is being turned into a festive paradise, with fairy lights, Christmas trees and cosy fire pits, and mulled wine at the bar. So pack a blanket and get outdoors to enjoy either The Snow Queen or Hansel & Gretel - or both.

Artist Open Houses – Putting the festive in festival

Brightonians always welcome the start of the winter Artist Open Houses, not least because we can get all our Christmas gifts locally, get something one of a kind, support a local artist and even get to nosy around their house. This year is naturally a bit different seeing the festival go online from 21st November – 31st December, giving you a unique chance to snap up an array of inspirational art as well as unique, handmade Christmas gifts, that you would usually travel for.   

Brighton Centre – Treat yourself to a future night out

Buying tickets for a show not only helps a local venue during a tough time, but also gives you or a friend the ultimate thing to look forward to… a night out! From comedy to the Magic of Motown there’s something for all tastes, not sure what they would like? No problem, they do e-cards too so you don’t need to worry, you can still buy now and enjoy later!

Kindling – Restaurant quality direct to your dining room

Packed with autumnal comfort food, Kindling’s finish at home menus are the perfect antidote to chilly evenings at home. Liven up your food plan with a sumptuous 3 course feast which you can serve at home with ease. Kindling’s at home menu runs from Thursday to Sunday and we love that you can order either a meat or plant-based option so that you can cater for different needs or mix and match if you’d prefer. Not in the city? Why not buy a gift voucher to use when next in the Brighton?

Sugardough – A slice of decadence in the heart of the city

This is a culinary paradise and perfect for Christmas present ideas (they deliver across the UK) so support an independent and I challenge you to not treat yourself too!

Creased Cards – Quirky cards from the heart of Brighton

Creased is one of those Brighton shops in the Lanes that always has a group of people stood looking in the windows - with very good reason. Creased stock unique, arty,  funny and sometimes a bit rude cards that will never fail to make your chosen recipient smile. We love their handwriting service to give your card the personal touch and they deliver really quickly, so are perfect if you don’t fancy running the gauntlet at the post office over Christmas.

Bluebell Vineyard – Put some fizz in your festivities
