AT open house: Brighton and Hove’s Artists Open Houses

It’s fair to say that as well as delivering tremendously marvellous content, DIGITAL bungalow is also rather image heavy.

The reason being, we like to look at nice things and that is precisely what I got to do on a recent outing to one of Brighton’s infamous open houses.

AT open house is run by April and Tim and they are the proud owners of an eclectic gallery brimming with beautiful examples of letter press, screen prints, paintings, photography, and textiles … oh and cake, I forgot cake.

I was accompanied on my trip by one of the DIGITAL bungalow youngsters and there we met not only our hosts April and Tim, but our good friends Delicious Industries‘ Creative Director Judith Wilding and artist Lou Taylor who produces the wholly delicate ‘Paper Cuts’ art.

Now when you pay a visit to April and Tim’s, the one thing that is prevalent (apart from the glorious works of art) is cake. Yep, cake. You’re not gonna miss it, believe me. It’s there on the lower ground floor sitting proudly on the AT open house dinner table. An overwhelming range of cake that you can wash down with a cup of tea if you’re in a traditional frame of mind, or coffee if you’re feeling a tad more European; all for a small voluntary donation.

More cake!

More cake!

So I’d like to suggest – in a subtle, Mafioso-style berating – that you get yourselves down there this weekend. Why? Because it’s the last one and if you haven’t been you should definitely, more than anything else … go.

What more could you want on a beautiful weekend in Brighton than to walk around a stunning house busting with impressive art, eating dangerously gorgeous cake and drinking fine tea.

You’d be mad not to … obviously.

A mere hop, skip and a jump from Queen’s Park, Hendon Street is just off Sutherland Road in Kemp Town.

The number 2 and 2a buses stop right at the end of Hendon Street and run from Shoreham to Rottingdean.
