Discussion/Interactive Food February 4, 2019, Monday, 7pm-9pm. PYOW. Brighton Vegans: Jenny’s dreaded birthday.
A weekend afternoon during the third or fourth week of each month. Hosted by Liz.
Quote: "Unexpectedly, unthinkably, unbelievably, ridiculously, shockingly and horrifyingly, I will be 60 years old on Monday, 4th February. How the hell did THAT happen? One minute, I was 30 and just getting on with my life. Suddenly, I am going to be 60 but still feeling 30. Time has a habit of creeping up on people like that. Guess what? It will happen to you too. I am certainly not perfect but I have definitely earned my wrinkles. I have brought up three adopted children with various special needs, divorced three husbands, rescued hundreds of animals and saved the lives of thousands of animals by not eating them! I set up Disability Pride Brighton two and a half years ago with the aim of combating disability discrimination and am told I am now making life better for thousands of disabled people. I have also just won a Community Star award. I can finally say I have done something about which I am proud. I was not going to celebrate my birthday because who the hell wants to celebrate being 60? Then a friend asked me to think about the alternative to being 60 and of all those people who didn’t make it, including my sister who drowned aged seven. I usually try not to think about my age but there is no point in being ashamed or denying it - after all, I can’t do anything about it! I am working on an initiative at the moment regarding ‘coming out as disabled’. As my many gay friends know, it is often difficult to come out as homosexual. It can be just as hard to ‘come out’ as being disabled, particularly when people have an invisible disability. Therefore, today I have decided to ‘come out’ as OLD! As Annie Lennox said a couple of weeks ago, after celebrating her 64th birthday: “I want people to realise that women of my age don’t have to become invisible. We can still thrive, be full of life and have fun, and have so much to offer.” So... that’s what I am going to continue to do. I know it’s short notice but, if anyone would like to join me to celebrate/commiserate, you are very welcome. We may go somewhere for a drink afterwards. Jenny Skelton."

Speaker: Dr Laura Kent, Higher Research Scientist in Electronic & Magnetic Materials at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington.
Location: Latest Music bar, 14-17 Manchester St, Brighton, BN2 1TF.
Quote: "The Measure of All Things, with Dr Laura Kent, National Physical Laboratory Measurement is at the heart of all science and engineering. And progress in science and engineering is often linked to progress in metrology – the science of measurement. After all, if we cannot measure something then we cannot begin to understand it (science) or improve it (engineering). Measurement is the quantitative comparison of an unknown quantity with a standard. In the International System of Units – the ‘SI’ – there are seven standard quantities called the ‘base units’: the second, metre, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, candela and mole. Some of these, such as the second, the metre and the kilogram, we encounter in everyday life. Amazingly all the physical measurements we make can be traced back to combinations of these ‘base units’.
In this talk Dr Kent will explain the how the International System of Units works, and why, from May 2019 scientists are planning subtle but profound changes in the definitions of four of these base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin and mole. ."

- Matthew Bellringer: Don't work, play! Adults have forgotten how to play. This is a big problem. Play is vital for creativity, growth and happiness. Other intelligent species spend much of their lives playing. What can we learn from them? What happens to your brain when you're playing? Can you replace work with play completely? Matthew is a tech entrepreneur and student of business psychology. He's helping people who take new approaches to personal development get in touch with the people who really need them. He is also partly giving this talk to remind himself to spend more time playing.
- Dr Graham Campbell: Psychedelic Medicine... Graham’s earliest memory was accidentally tripping on Strepsils aged 3 after secretly eating an entire packet. It’s not clear whether this kick-started his early interest in dreams, minds, consciousness, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, medicine and his gravitational attraction to psychiatry. Reading about LSD in psychology books in his teens triggered a fascination with the potential for positive, even healing, experiences with psychedelic drugs. Politicians and the media haven’t been kind to these molecules and there have certainly been casualties attributed to their widespread use. But perhaps the story isn’t all bad? Could the vilification of these substances make way for recognition of their potential role in the alleviation of human suffering? Dr Graham Campbell works as a consultant inpatient psychiatrist in Sussex. He completed a Neuroscience MSc with King’s College London/Institute of Psychiatry in 2012. In 2018, he became an Honorary Clinical Research Fellow with the Imperial College Psychedelic Research Group to support their second clinical trial of psilocybin for depression.
- Jess English: Coffee - black, hold the butter. To carb or not to carb? Paleo? Flexitarian? FODMAPs?! The world of nutrition science can be a confusing place. Eating is something that we’re all kind of experts at - but it can be tricky to translate these fancy, jangly terms into what exactly you’re going to put into your mouth. Jess will be taking a closer look at the world of nutribollocks and diet tribes; the evidence (or lack of!) behind it all and why the goalposts constantly seem to be moving - plus a handy guide to spotting it in the wild. Jess is a HCPC Registered Dietitian with a passion for evidence-based nutrition science and a particular interest in public health. She has worked in the NHS as a clinical dietitian, in public health and community nutrition and now runs her own private practice (Level Up Nutrition) where she’s on a mission to help people decipher nutrition science, translating it to fit their own lives in an easily digestible way.
Hosted by Dr Mick Taylor... We regularly sell out- so if you buy a ticket you can’t use, please let us know on the Facebook page so we can ensure disorganised nerds who forgot to buy a ticket in time can still come."

May 6, Monday, 2019. May Day Statutory Bank Holiday. "First Monday in May. Traditional English May Day rites and celebrations include crowning a May Queen and celebrations involving a maypole. Historically, Morris dancing has been linked to May Day celebrations.[8] Much of this tradition derives from the pagan Anglo-Saxon customs held during "Þrimilci-mōnaþ"[9] (the Old English name for the month of May meaning Month of Three Milkings) along with many Celtic traditions. May Day has been a traditional day of festivities throughout the centuries, most associated with towns and villages celebrating springtime fertility (of the soil, livestock, and people) and revelry with village fetes and community gatherings. Seeding has been completed by this date and it was convenient to give farm labourers a day off. Perhaps the most significant of the traditions is the maypole, around which traditional dancers circle with ribbons." Info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_holidays_in_the_United_Kingdom

Quote: "A set of celebrations held in the town of Lewes, Sussex that constitute the United Kingdom's largest and most famous Bonfire Night festivities, with Lewes being called the bonfire capital of the world...
 Always held on 5 November (unless the 5th falls on a Sunday, in which case it's held on Saturday 4th), the event not only marks Guy Fawkes Night - the date of the uncovering of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 - but also commemorates the memory of the seventeen Protestant martyrs from the town burned at the stake for their faith during the Marian Persecutions.
 Lewes is home to the largest and most celebrated of the festivities in the Sussex bonfire tradition. There are seven societies putting on five separate parades and firework displays on the 5th, and this can mean 3,000 people taking part in the celebrations, and up to 80,000 spectators attending in the small market town with a permanent population of just under 16,000"

Quote: "Vegan Runners meet up at Hove Park on the 2nd saturday(9am) of each month for the (weekly) Parkrun ( http://www.parkrun.org.uk/brighton/ ) a free to enter, low key, timed run / walk of 5 Kilometres (3 miles). Baby strollers and dogs welcome. Afterwards we gather at the cafe. They have soya milk and we're working on them for cake, but for now we take our own food!! Maybe you'd like to come along to walk, run or socialise and support?...or just play in the swing park! You don't have to be a super-athlete, all abilities, and all ages (we have an 8 year old vegan taking part!) take part. If you do want to register it couldn't be simpler or cheaper. Go to the Parkrun website and give very basic details (feel free to class yourself as a member of Vegan Runners club if you wish). They then email you back a barcode for you to print keep and use at ALL future Parkruns (anywhere in the world!). Bring the barcode with you to scan at the end of the run to recieve your time. As of 21st April there is now also a Parkrun in Preston Park so maybe we'll have to consider visiting that one sometimes. Any questions or issues about it feel free to give me a shout on ****@yahoo.com... Look forward to seeing you there!!!! Dave..."

Walk December ?, 2019, Friday 5pm-8pm. December Solstice - Burning the Clocks LANTERN PARADE.
Quote: "Burning the Clocks is a unique festival of light and art that brings the city of Brighton together to mark the Winter Solstice. The festival was created in 1994 by the award-winning community arts charity Same Sky as a way to celebrate the holiday spirit regardless of people's religious beliefs. Recently it has adopted a totally different purpose as a rebellion against the modern day excess of Christmastime commercialism.
Make a lantern: What better way to get involved then to create your own lantern and participate in the event. It is very important to note that only approved lanterns will be allowed on the beach for safety reasons. You will need to purchase an official lantern kit in advance.
Walk in the parade: The parade is half the fun of the event and free for anyone to participate. The only requirement to participate in the parade is that you purchase an official lantern kit. The kit contains a parade wristband.
Wear something warm: The nights can get quite cold in Brighton over winter. The ocean breeze can drop temperatures quickly so make sure to wear a scarf and keep your head covered.
Participants of the parade meet at the Corn Exchange (one of the venues of the Brighton Dome) at 5pm. From here the lanterns are checked by officials to make sure the parade runs safely and smoothly. With lanterns lit the spectacle begins at around 6:30pm, as the crowd of around 2,000 people representing all ages make their way down New Road.
The streets are lined with eager spectators who cheer as the parade of light winds its way through the streets and down to the shorefront. In total some 20,000 spectators brave the cold to witness this motley procession of white shapes illuminating the darkness of the longest night for the year. At approximately 7:15pm the last group of the parade arrives at the beach to the beating of drums and the fire show springs to action."

Tentative Start: The Corn Exchange, near the Brighton Dome, Church St east of New Rd and Jubilee St. Route: Along Madeira Drive and surrounding streets|Prince Albert St & Ship St Brighton.
