Today we speak to Kelly of We Love Brighton, a well loved Brighton events, lifestyle and listing site, and one of our Christmas fair sponsors. Find out more about them…
Hi Kelly, we love We Love Brighton! Please introduce yourself and We Love Brighton to everyone….
Hi I’m Kelly the Editor at We Love Brighton. Our website is full of great content about Brighton and Hove for Brightonians and tourists alike! We publish previews and reviews of events, food, style and much more as well as ‘Best Of’ articles to help you find out everything from the best things to do on Brighton Beach to where to get the best Mexican food in the City. We also have a huge events calendar bursting with all of the great events happening across the city every month.
How long has We Love Brighton been established and how did the idea come about?
Around 5 years. Although we redesigned and relaunched the site in September and things have really taken off from there. The website started as a platform to promote the events that our sister company 4 Print and Design worked for. This slowly evolved into a listings site and it all went from there.
What is your favourite part about your job at We Love Brighton?
That’s so hard to answer! I really love what I do, I love working with local businesses and venues, I love knowing what’s happening before anyone else and most of all I love Brighton so it’s all good!
The site has been very popular, what are your plans for the future of We Love Brighton?
To grow even more! To expand the content we produce so there is more and more great stuff for our readers. At some point we are also going to create an app and we will also be creating a ticketing platform.
If we want to find out more about the website or are interested in being part of it how do we do so?
Head over to our website at www.welovebrighton.com and you’ll find all of our great content. We are always looking for new writers and contributors who know and love Brighton so i’d encourage anyone who’s interested to email us at email@example.com.
The Fairy Tale Fair is can’t wait to have We Love Brighton with us as a sponsor, why did you choose to support us, and are you looking forward to our festive fairs?
The Fairy Tale fair is such a great event and this years fairs look even bigger and better than before. We really value supporting local businesses as we are one ourselves and it’s really important to us to promote local events too. Also we’re looking forward to buying all our Christmas presents nice and early!
Do you have a motto or inspirational thought of the day?!
Well seeing as The Fairy Tale fair is about local makers and artists how about
“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.” Oscar Wilde
