Hijack starts Saturday! Yippee

Hey Brighton from Sat 25 May to Sun 2 June 2013 you're in for a serious treat :o)

This year’s Brighton Fringe will be taken over by children and families for Hijack Family Fringe. Hijack is a specially curated programme of shows and events just for the kids aged 2-12... and their families of course ;) All the events take place in the heart of Brighton at venues including Komedia, Dukes @ Komedia, the Jubilee Library and even a secret Park location!  It's guaranteed to be great fun and tickets for all events are available to buy online at: Komedia or Brighton Fringe.

We were lucky enough to work with Emily and the Hijack team on their brand new smiley logo whilst producing their printed marketing materials (these can be spotted all around Brighton) and we're so excited to finally see all the events kick start this weekend.

There's definitely something for everyone... including having a right laugh with Hijack Comedy, watching amazing awesome films such as Labyrinth with David Bowie at Hijack Film, getting all gadgety with Hijack Tech, building the ultimate den at Hijack the Park and much much more... Here's a quick run down of our favorite things to look forward too :o)

25 May, 26 May
Hijack Family Fringe takes over Jubilee Library! 
Bootworks Theatre invites one child and accompanying adult on a whirlwind adventure with Henry. Henry loved books, but not like you and I love books…he loved to EAT books. This exciting theatre adaptation of Oliver Jeffers’ award-winning children’s book by Bootworks Theatre follows the story of a boy with a voracious appetite for books.
If Henry isn’t great enough on his own on 25th May there will also be The Incredible Book Making Workshop 
31 May
A great show for 2-4 year olds. Ets-beest is a performance for and with an early-year’s audience. It takes place around and across a large sheet of paper and literally translates as ‘etching beast’. The show is a coming together of dance, drawing and music where the boundaries between the young audience and performers blur.

Labyrinth [U] with the legendary David Bowie
28 May (showing at 2pm)
Kirikou and the Sorceress [U]
30 May (showing at 2pm)

Hijack Comedy
25 and 26 May
Hijack Family Fringe brings you the funniest stand-up comedians on the circuit. Brighton’s favourite improv troupe The Noise Next Door will rip up a storm on Komedia stage with a perfectly formed show for the youngest comedy fans.

Hijack Tech
29 May


Unplug your kids as Hijack Family Fringe goes digital! With help from Brighton’s most exciting creative technologists, Hijack Digital gives your kids the chance to discover the insides of technology. Digital specialists and children take over Komedia in a series of hands-on workshops.
And there's even more... as Hijack the Park will take over a secret location where kids from 4+ can build a den and listen to stories by Spymonkey’s Petra Massey. Look out for the location nearer the event.

If you're looking for lots of fun and original activities in Brighton May 25 - June 2 then pop over to hijackhq.com for all the information 
and don't miss out on booking your place at any of these family events. To book now visit Komedia or Brighton Fringe. :o)

AT Open House

We're excited to be lucky enough to have been invited back to AT Open House this May! If you're not from Brighton, Artists Open Houses is a festival that runs throughout May and for 3 weeks in November-December. Each weekend of the festival people open their own homes up as gallery spaces. AT Open House is at 42 Hendon Street in Kemp Town and is run by the very lovely April and Tim and their home is BEAUTIFUL! (honestly, it is pretty much my dream house!) They also have fantastic taste in very diverse art and design. Here is a peek at a little of what you can expect from the house...

We were VERY excited to hear that Claire Scully was joining the AT line up this time around! We have followed her work online for ages but it is amazing to see it in the flesh. These pictures really don't do them enough justice! The detail is INSANE. There is a particular BIG owl print (not pictured here) that you will see first on entering the house and I'm completely in love with it...
One of our favourite Brighton printmakers Snorkus is also at AT Open House, her work is so happy and colourful, right up our street! You can also find fantastic hand stitched toys in vintage fabrics by Snorkus is the house.
