The Chair gave the following communications:


The Corn Exchange has now reopened following its major restoration. It’s first performances were Gecko’s Kin.


The Brighton Centre has had a strong run of comedy over the last weeks, with excellent ticket sales.


The Exhale Creative Grant Projects are all live incoming weeks. Local Black artists have produced three projects interrogating the legacy of the transatlantic slave trade, with the works including a mural, performance event, new music and spoken-word and a walking app for the city. 


Take Part Family Day is this Saturday at Brighton Dome. This is produced in partnership with African Night Fever and features the premiere of their Exhale Creative Grant commission, The Seeds of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.


Planning committee recently rejected the application that may have affected The Prince Albert music venue. Councillors expressed their commitment to ensuring the livelihood of this famous and well loved music venue, demonstrating the essential place they occupy in the city’s grassroots music scene.


The development of the new Kingsway to the Sea park is continuing to move forward with speed.   The creation of the new Outside Sports Hub is well underway. Works at the former Pitch and Putt areas also started in October, this will transform the area into a garden with improved accessibility and the new wheeled sports area


New beach chalets will shortly be arriving on Saltdean seafront, and look set to be quickly snapped up by residents currently on the waiting list.  The new units bring the total number of beach chalets available across Hove, Rottingdean, Maderia Drive, Ovingdean and Saltdean to 119..  


Finally, a Christmas tree has been secured for each ward in the city, with opportunities to decorate the tree being managed by ward councillors.
