EAT: TIBITS, LONDON
This little gem was recently discovered by Helen, our Customer Service manager. And what a find it is! Tibits was started up by three brothers in Switzerland (2000), all in search of creating inspiring vegetarian cuisine. Bored of the lame offering that vegetarians were used to receiving in restaurants, the brothers wanted to discover the fresh seasonal ingredients to use in "A delicious vegetarian buffet, as speedy as a fast food joint and as cosy as corner café."

Being a fan of mixing things up - In this innovative joint you pay by weight, so eat as much or as little as you like. Many dishes on the menu change daily using influences from all over the world.

READ: HIS LIFE WAS A LIE
Jonathan S. Harvey has written his debut novel 'His Life Was A Lie', released in October. Local man Harvey served as a detective in the Sussex police force for over 25 years, often conducting operations using covert techniques. His real insight gives this book a gripping edge.

A Crime Thriller set in the olde streets of Brighton and the surrounding countryside of The South Downs, spanning out to the mountains of Malaga in Spain. A routine robbery at a house of a successful industrialist leads to the possible exposure of his life of lies. Blackmail, murderers and corrupt policemen - Get lost among the twists and turns of this roller-coaster thriller, finding out where the action leads in an explosive finale.

This would make a great gift for Christmas, or something for you to get your teeth into this Winter. A follow up is also in the pipe-line, look out for 'Revenge' in 2015.


Available in Paperback and on Kindle. Click here for more information.

FILM: The Imitation Game
This month sees the release of the hotly-anticipated The Imitation Game, starring man-of-the-moment Benedict Cumberbatch.

The film tells the inspiring true-life story of scientist Alan Turing, one of the key figures behind the cracking of the Nazis' Enigma code in World War Two. Turing's successes were a vital part of the Allies success in defeating Nazi Germany and helped turn the tide of the war. Turing was later discriminated and criminally prosecuted for his homosexuality, a shocking and shameful chapter in British history. Cumberbatch has been praised for his amazing performance as the formidable Turing, and the film has received critical plaudits since debuting at festivals earlier in the year.


Released November 14th.

SEE: REMEMBER REMEMBER, 5th NOV

Dig out your wellies, woolies and flasks! One of our favourite Winter events has arrived - Guy Fawkes Night. We rarely need an excuse to throw a party - and for the last 300 years we have kept this tradition well and truly alive.

Your local bonfire celebration is usually the best, but for something a little more large-scale, head to the capital to experience the lively Lord Mayors Show or legendary fireworks display at Ally Pally, with a beautiful view across the city. Our local will be in Lewes - always on the 5th and always the largest, loudest and most exciting procession around!


- Lord Mayors Show & Fireworks
(Saturday 8th November)
- Lewes Bonfire Night
(Wednesday 5th November)
- Alexandra Palace
(Saturday 1st November)
