BIMM Cities

My Brighton: Orchards

30th May 2018


We’re asking BIMM students and alumni to share their favourite things about the city they study in! Here’s BIMM Brighton band Orchards with their top tips for BIMM’s first home.

How would you summarise Brighton?

It’s an electric and vibrant city; one that lends itself to the growth and progression of creatives.

Do you remember the first gig you saw in the city?

Yes. It was at The Prince Albert, hosted by Cable Club and BIMM’s very own Fickle Friends were playing! Not quite as you know them now though.

And the last?

We saw a band called High Tyde at The Old Market.

If you had someone visiting for 24 hours, where would you take them?

First for a nice coffee in Bond Street and then to a gig at The Hope & Ruin after some good vegan junk food.

What would you say is Brighton’s hidden gem?

For new people coming to the city I’d have to say Devil’s Dyke! It’s a good way to get out of the city and it’s definitely worth checking out the awesome views from up there!
