BRIGHTON ROCKS: Our Brighton Fringe Picks – 23-27 May

Time flies when you’re having fun, and we’re already entering the third week of Brighton Fringe. Over 2000 performances have already taken place, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg with plenty of goodies still to come.

If you’ve managed to sneak a week off work and are head to Brighton this week, here are five of out picks for your must-see list this Monday – Friday (23-27 May 2016).

Reve d'etecircoPitanga –Reves d’ete

One of the joys of Brighton Fringe is the ability to catch international acts, and this is your chance to visit Switzerland for the exotically named circoPitanga. For those of you who think circus is just clowns and jugglers, think again!

Circus, theatre and poetry combine for the tale of an aerial romance told through the art of acrobatics!

23-25 May 21:00 – Brighton Spiegeltent

Salmon and wales2Glass Moon Theatre Company – Salmon And Wales

There’s another opportunity to explore more serious subjects, with Glass Moon Theatre’s Salmon And Wales. We all often retreat inside our heads in times of trouble, but for a young woman facing domestic abuse, the world of dreams provides sanctuary.

When the demons of her abuse infiltrate her fantasy realm and her world comes crashing down around her, she finally finds a release in reality.

23-25 May 18:00 – The Warren: Theatre Box

The Thermos Museum - Brighton FringeThe Thermos Museum

We all love a bit of culture here at The Reviews Hub, so when we heard there was a tour of the world renowned Thermos Museum we just had to go.

Our reviewer came out with a ‘slightly bemused feeling’, but when you’ve spent the week running around Brighton, catching shows in unusual places, that’s to be expected. Just don’t try and get a reviving cuppa out of any of the exhibits.

25-30 May &1-5 June 14:00 &15:00 – Komedia

Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper ShowJust Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show

It is hard to believe its now over 30 years since Tommy Cooper’s death. His comedy style still influences performers today. Direct from a sell out in London, this critically acclaimed tribute show features all the classics.

The perfect celebration of Britain’s favourite comedian.


26-30 May 14:00 – The Warren Theatre Box

In the running for the longest show title at this year’s Brighton Fringe, HEVSSHWWW2 burns the Official Secrets Act and tells us how Germany’s greatest underground cabaret star turned into Britain’s No.1 spy, armed only with a ukulele and the power of song,

Acomedic story of love, frankfurters, the other Eva… and de-bunks the bunker story once and for all.
