There will be live water, street and urban sports as well as live music, kids' entertainment and much much more fun!

There is surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, skating, windsurfing to all new sports such as surf lifesaving, land paddling, kitesurfing and freestyle mountain biking...everybody wants to join in on the fun times! 

They are run entirely on volunteers, previously they have raised over £100,000 for charities!

Surf Action
Surf Action's core purpose is to focus on the well being and support of combat veterans and their families. They are innovative as they use surfing and the beach environment as a means to escape the daily barriers faced by these troops returning from conflict. 

Does't all this just remind you of Crush from Finding Nemo? 

"Oh, dude. You're ridin' it, dude! Check it out!"  
Yea, so we say just listen to Crush and "dude! Check it out!"
There is just too much going on! Artist Residence are super excited for this festival. Especially if it is going to be a beautiful day, fingers crossed!

The Mad Hatter Cafe

The Mad Hatter Cafe on Montpelier Road in Brighton serves vegetarian goodness, the cafe had a great ambience with, art that is available to buy.

They had illustrations of characters from Alice in Wonderland dotted about on the menu boards. 

Finally Team Artist Residence had decided on their order. 

The homemade falafel wrap was the best.

The homemade falafel wasn't too greasy or heavy. The fresh crunch of the salad leaves, the crispiness of the falafel, the zesty tomatoes and creamy smooth texture of the houmous makes it a perfect bite. 

It's great that The Mad Hatter cafe is so close to Artist Residence, it means we can pop in there for lunch quickly. 

Here is the address: 
32 Montpelier Road
