Sounds Familiar Music Quiz

195 user reviews 5

Sounds Familiar's epic events have gained quite the reputation in Brighton over the years. And while packed-out music halls may still be off the cards, you can get your fix of tabletop dancing and bonkers prizes by taking part in one of their online editions instead.

After months of endless cooking (and washing up) you deserve a night eating at one of Brighton's swanky restaurants. For the best views in town? Head to the seafront, where you'll be able to munch on fancy fish and chips or gourmet brunch dishes whilst watching the waves lap the shore.

Social Isolation

Lockdown doesn't have to be lonely, and no one is proving that more than the team at Social Isolation. Born out of a desire to connect people in their homes, they have created a roster of virtual bingo events, dance parties and singalongs. The best bit? You won't even have to change out of your PJs.

After a long old hiatus beer gardens are finally able to reopen their doors for a summer of socially-distanced pints and alfresco eats. Brighton's collection of outdoor drinking dens includes sky high rooftops, beachfront bars and leafy secret escapes, perfect for cooling off after a day exploring.

Missing the thrill of live entertainment? Cinestock is looking to fill that void with their stellar line-up of drive-in film screenings and comedy shows. Located at The South of England Showground, their summer calendar includes the likes of Ed Byrne and Marcus Brigstocke.
