New Members Welcome

Posted above is the documentary filmed by a team of students at the University of Sussex for their final course submission. Jackson Ducasse, Oscar Gordon-Lyons, Michael Botwright and James Scott have created a piece of work that far exceeds their course expectations, handling the subject of the ailing Brighton Trades Social Club with sensitivity and aplomb. I look forward to the next piece of work from this group and, with filming for a new project due to start in a couple of weeks, I hope to have further details and perhaps an interview to post at a later date.

  1. Worry not readers, this will be available again at some point in the near future.

  2. I saw this! Throughout, I could only fantasise about what you could do with the place. They could easily raise some money hiring it out for a few one-off events, like a Great War dance hall night, with sandbags for a bit of an air-raid shelter look – the place is the perfect delapidated setting…although delapidated is probably why they haven’t done much (health n safety?)…

    • Health and Safety can mean the death of places like this – I don’t think the smoking ban will have done it any favours either.
