The Space event in Brighton

This isn't exactly writing-related, more generally media/networky. But I thought some from the group might be interested in going...


An update on our forthcoming event

The SPACE (Southern Performance and Creative Energies) is Brighton’s new monthly media and arts networking event, bringing together the creative community. It is an environment for making contacts and connections, so, ideally, employment can be made.



Hayley Sherman speaks to two special guests from the music world.

Go! Team’s Ian Parton –

Ian Parton is behind one of Brighton’s most popular and acclaimed music bands in recent years, the Go! Team. After interest from John Peel and a tour with Franz Ferdinand, they saw their album Thunder, Lightning, Strike nominated for 2005’s prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Their successful blend of indie, pop and hip-hop has gained them a huge following.

Everett True –

Everett True is a legendary and controversial music journalist. In the 1980s, True worked at the NME and Melody Maker. While covering grunge music, he befriended Kurt Cobain, introduced the Nirvana star to Courtney Love, and wheeled Cobain on stage at the Reading Festival. True currently edits the music magazine Plan B and his music biographies include the acclaimed new book Nirvana – The True Story.


Everett True and SPACE organiser Wayne Imms will appear on Juice 107.2’s Latest 7 show, presented by Jeff Hemmings, on Tuesday 31 October, between 10pm and the witching hour. Do tune in if you can!


The main aim of The SPACE is to have an opportunity for networking, which, as you may know, can be an invaluable way of building contacts, and getting further, if you wish, in your creative fields. We would love to see more networking occurring at our events, and more of you gaining work in your areas. We will look at ways to increase chances for making contacts at future evenings. Do feel free to mingle and meet others at our events – you never know who you will meet! Meanwhile, your thoughts on this, or anything SPACE related, will be very welcome.


There will be a raffle prize for a chance to win Everett True’s Nirvana – The True Story, a great book, with 600 pages. Plus, the fantastically infectious Thunder, Lightning Strike, the debut album by the Go! Team


The SPACE takes place at the New Madeira Hotel, Marine Parade, a great venue and just a pebble’s throw from Brighton Pier. Doors open at 7pm. Entrance fee of just £3.00 www.newmadeirahotel.com
