Dear Esther. The morning after I was washed ashore, salt in my ears, sand in my mouth and the waves always at my ankles, I felt as though everything had conspired to this one last shipwreck. I remembered nothing but water, stones in my belly and my shoes threatening to drag me under to where only the most listless of creatures swim.

“In my final dream, I sat at peace with Jakobson and watched the moon over the Sandford junction, goats grazing on the hard shoulder, a world gone to weed and redemption.” From Dear Esther Live, coming to Brighton Dome Feb 2 – more info here: http://bit.ly/2AxHsT2

Did you know Winston Churchill once visited Brighton Dome? In October 1947, Winston Churchill spoke on stage as part of a post-war Conservative Party Conference #brightondome #brighton #history #winstonchurchill

Did you know that Brighton Dome started life as a Stables and Riding House?
Built by Prince Regent between 1803 and 1808, the Riding House (now the Corn Exchange) and Stable Block (now Concert Hall) was designed by William Porden and inspired by the Jama Masjid in Delhi, with the interior inspired by the Paris Corn Exchange and the Pantheon in Rome. #history #heritagebuilding #brighton #architecture
