Lets breakout of Brighton and spend an evening in the downs.

We live in a unique place, squeezed in between a National Park and the sea. Yet too few of us make space for it in our busy lives. Brightoneers breakout will give you a chance to go outside where the best ideas live and find inspiration from the amazing places we have on our doorstep.

We'll find space to decompress our heads from our busy lives and get the time to chat to fellow Brightoneers in different and exciting environments.

For the first one we'll head over to Moulsecoomb by train and head up and over Holingbury Hill, Brighton's highest point. The summit is a neolithic hill fort, a magical place where high amongst the gorse we can watch the sun (hopefully) go down over the bay of Sussex and listen to the Skylarks sing before we wander down through the woods down to the Ditchling Road. Those that want to can then head to the Open House near London Road station for a drink (or two).

The walk is approximately 3.5 miles and involves one steep climb and over some rough ground. Its meant to be accessible to most people, so we'll wander at an easy pace. You will need to be prepared with sensible shoes and waterproofs if need be.

There is no agenda or expectation with this event, just a space to meet and informally share ideas and thoughts inspired by the places we're in.

The plan is to meet at Brighton station at 17:45. You will need a single ticket to Moulsecoomb and we will catch the 18:02 train. If you want to meet us at Moulsecoomb station on the Lewes bound platform and please be there by 18:15 latest.

If its a format that works for people we can decide where else we can breakout to over the summer months and enjoy some long balmy evenings pioneering a better future for Brighton in places that make our city unique.

    I'll see you all at Moulscoomb stations - I live not far from it- and will bring my dog as she loves this walk! She doesn't love pubs, so I won't join you for the pub bit.

    This is a truly wonderful idea and thing to do. It is the day after my 40th so you will have to forgive me Mark and Tommy if I don't make it! But hoping to and I will email pub details for the Saturday eve if you fancy an eve celebration beforehand:)
