Beano to Brighton


Meet in Victoria Station for 10.30am  at The Weatherspoons pub. It's ok they do brekfast too as it may be a bit early for some us to have a drink at that of the day ;)Some of us are booked on the 10.51 am train to Brighton and coming back at 23:05 to Victoria. Don't worry if you can't get on the same train as us we will meet you in Brighton. I will pm my number out the day before.

Here you can find The Weatherspoons in Victoria Station...

Any of you Indie kids fancy an outing to Brighton one Saturday in August? In the mood for some jelled eels,fish and chips, candy floss and a beer by Brighton pier? Then bring your bucket and spade, packed lunch, inflatable shark and suntan lotion...eh maybe don't bother with that last one it is "Blighty" after all! 


Brighton Modernist & 60's weekender is taking place this bank holiday weekend. During the day there are some free events to attend and I am keen to go down on 23/08/14. At Volks club on Brighton seafront they will have some bands on from 1 - 5pm. They will also have open decks DJ sessions and Market selling records, vintage and bespoke clothes, art and memorabilia from the movie Quadrophenia.

Even if you are not into the 60's Mod thingy, come and chill out in Brighton. Have some fish & chips by the seafront, go on some of the rides on the pier, have look around the town and get lost in the lanes.

    A nice day chilling by the seaside. Ok so there wasn't much music but thought it was fun day out with you all. As always nice meeting the new people and seeing the usual faces. I would like to thank Dave for letting us use his table for lunch. A lovely pub but they did overdo it on The Smiths. Now that's one band I can't stand! ;) Thanks John for showing us Brighton. Oh crap I didn't get my candyfloss and stick of rock.

      No we didn't get to see any bands. Must have missed the last one at Volks. After Volks we went to watch the football ⚽ and some went to the pier. Went for food and got the train home.

    BBC forecast for Brighton tomorrow is cloudy, but no rain so I should be able to leave my trendy cagoule at home.

    August 22, 2014

  • Carolyn

    Pam and I are coming to Brighton, but we're going to stay overnight so we get the full night and Sunday too - we'll mostly be doing our own thing but will probably see you at Volks. There's also another festival called two three four on at the green door store for free which I think could be cool.

    Im going leave myself as a yes for now as want to come, but theres works going on at my train line that weekend, plus im sadly working on the sunday, so will have to leave early anyway. Ill let you know nearer the time, how it pans out!

      Ok Helen see how it goes. :)

      August 12, 2014

  • Gemma

    I wanted to come, but my trains timings are not good. There's obviously some works going on near London Bridge that weekend that means I can't go back via London Bridge easily, but if I go via Victoria I'll have to leave Brighton about 6pm as Southeastern don't do direct trains from Victoria to where I live after 7.39pm. Southeastern and National Rail suck! ;(

    August 8, 2014

    • Gemma

      I'll come, but I'll have to leave early :( Yeah, we'll go to the choccy place. It's near The Lanes I think.

    Liam, I might have to meet you in Brighton as Southeastern are stupid so I can get to Victoria easily, but have to come back via London Bridge. Should be able to get to get 2 cheap singles, but will have to check. I'll probably leave a bit before 11pm as well. I hope the weather is good. Don't want to have to shelter with soggy chips on the seafront! ;(

    Right gang! I'm gonna get my ticket leaving Victoria Station at 10:51 and coming back from Brighton at 23:05. Ticket comes to £13.75 inc booking fee. Who wants to join me on the train... if not can meet you you in Brighton later:)

    I've not been to Brighton for few years so may come along. My train line has trains to Victoria as well as Charing Cross so I may be able to travel with you all like it's a school outing! :) Will probably have to go back via London Bridge though as Southeastern are just awkward! If I come can we visit Choccywoccydoodah? It's supposed to be good!

      July 31, 2014

    • Gemma

      Signed up. As I feared Southeastern is useless. I can get direct train in the morning from Barnehurst to Victoria, but after about 8pm can't get direct train back so I'll have to go home via London Bridge instead. So glad I don't commute anymore! We must visit Choccywoccydoodah's­ Brighton shop, yum! http://www.choccywocc...­
