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.

Speaker: Dr Darren Gowers, University of Portsmouth.
Location: Latest Music bar, 14-17 Manchester St, Brighton, BN2 1TF.
Quote: "Wed 17 April; doors open 7:15, talk starts at 8:00. In this talk, Darren Gowers will take us on a tour down into the microscopic world of a cell and explore what makes them tick. We will start with a description of the scales of biological life, from ecosystems down to the tiny molecules of life. We will look at why the 3D shape of molecules like DNA and protein are essential to their function, and the key role of enzymes in allowing reactions to proceed on a useful timescale. We will discuss the central role of evolution in shaping life and explore various examples of how diseases can be explained, diagnosed and cured by a clear understanding of molecular interactions. We will also explore a few current highlights from recent genomic and gene-editing technologies. Darren Gowers writes: Since my college days in Brighton, I have been fascinated by biology and the amazing diversity of life found on this planet. I have been fortunate in following a path in bioscience research that has allowed me to understand life from a cellular level. This has been via a PhD at Southampton (1998), postdoc at Bristol (2004), to my present position as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Biology at UoP. My research area is Biochemistry - the study of macromolecules, genes and cells. My group works on proteins that bind to DNA, with the aim of understanding how these affect gene control in healthy and diseased cells."

History Discussion/Interactive Walk/Hike April 22, 2019, Monday, 2pm-4pm. £5+£10. Guided-walks-in-BrightonandSussex: A tour of Rye - Smugglers, Ships and Poets.
Quote: "A tour into historic Rye, one of the most unspoilt coastal towns in the country. Rye is small, perfectly preserved and bursting with history, from its place as one the 'ancient towns' in Norman times, supporting the 'cinque ports', formed to protect the coast and trade with other countries. Rye became notorious for smuggling and the infamous Hawkhurst gang were known to operate here. Small enough to have largely escaped modern development yet with a wealth of history, this should be a great day out for all (suitable for children aged 10 plus)
All my tours are only £5 per person and children go free - Look forward to seeing you there. Nick... Rye is only 90 minutes away from Brighton on the train and a discounted ticket will only cost around £ 10 return."

Science Philosophy Discussion April 25, 2019, Thursday, 7:30pm-10:30pm. £3. Skeptics in the Pub - Why Diets Don’t Work – and other myths about food and health - Pixie Turner.
Quote: "Despite a wealth of information at our fingertips there are still so many things we get wrong about our health, and with a new diet book out every other day it’s no wonder people are confused. What should we be eating? When? How often? Just how important is food when it comes to our overall health? Humans have always been a bit weird around food. We’re told eating certain foods are the key to living longer, some foods are ‘sinful’ or ‘bad’, that ‘you are what you eat’, and that we must seek to obtain health at all costs. All this means we follow crazy diets that make things worse rather than better, and have a population where most of us dislike our bodies. Pixie will unpack why diet and nutrition misinformation is so problematic, on social media, in mass media, and on a public health level, and why we could all benefit from taking a moment to assess our personal relationship with food. Expect some mythbusting, diet rants, and lots of fully-referenced evidence-based science. Pixie is a nutritionist (ANutr), food blogger, and science communicator. She graduated with a First Class degree in Biochemistry, and went on to complete a Masters in Nutrition with Distinction. She is the brains behind the 'Pixie Nutrition' social media accounts, which aim to infiltrate the wellness movement and debunk nutrition misinformation online. In addition, she has been featured as a nutrition expert on BBC and Channel 5, and in publications such as Red magazine, Evening Standard, Grazia, the Telegraph and more. Her first book, ‘The Wellness Rebel’ was published early 2018, with her second book, ‘The No Need to Diet Book’ released March 2019."

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"

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.
