Lava Elastic Xmas Extravaganza


Lava Elastic is the UK’s first openly neurodiverse comedy/performance/poetry nights, brought to you by neurodivergent performer (late diagnosis of Aspergers and proud of it) Sarah Saeed (who has performed as operatic comedy diva Marianna Harlotta and is a member of autistic performance company Stealth Aspies)
Lava Elastic is a platform for brilliant and exciting performers who are considered from the ‘problematic’ to the ‘niche’ alongside other wonderful and talented acts who are varied in their styles…as well as their brains…(which of course everyone is anyway but we’re choosing to celebrate that at Lava Elastic)…neurodivergent performers often struggle to get booked, might struggle to navigate the social codes around dealing with promoters, they may also struggle with organisation, and as a result of all these things there are plenty of talented people out there you simply don’t get to see often…Lava Elastic intends to change that!

Vive la difference!

Brighton Writers Meet-up – Cafe Werks

Join us for a professional writers meet-up at Cafe Werks, hosted by Hayley November (Werks Central Cowerker and screenwriter) and BAFTA winning kids screenwriter Debbie Moon.

Any and all professional/represented writers are welcome.

This is a casual hang-out social, NOT a &A, networking or start-up advice event. We will be organising another meet-up in the new year for anyone who’s starting out a writing career or who wants to explore writing and needs advice…

We’re sponsoring Mile Oak U8s football team!

A few weeks back, we announced our sponsorship of Mile Oak U8’s football team, who have just started their first ever season! We’re so glad to have been offered this amazing opportunity to show support for our local community, which we’re really, really passionate about – Brighton & Hove and the people in it are the heart and soul of what we do, so this was really a no brainer for us (also, we think our logo looks amazing on the kit, but we might be a bit biased!).

So, without further ado, let us introduce you to the wonderful Mile Oak U8’s football team and their coach, Nick…

How’s the start of the season been so far?

As we’re a new team, we are a bit behind the others that have been playing for 1-2 years already! We have had a bit of a slow start but the team is improving week in week out and we’re all very hopeful for the future.

How do you get the team ready for a match? Is there a favourite warm up or game?

Warm ups are extremely important to avoid injury and boost morale. The team love to play Piggy in The Middle which is a great passing game!

What kind of skills do the children take away from being part of a team?

By being part of a team it can really help with their confidence and it teaches them to listen, work hard and show respect for eachother. They can also build really good friendships through football which really can last a lifetime.

How has sponsorship helped?

The sponsorship from The Werks Group has been fantastic. It’s allowed us to purchase a match kit which makes the kids feel part of a team, and it also helps to keep it affordable for the parents by keeping the sign up fee low.

We’ll be sharing updates on the team’s season across our social media, so do give us a follow on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay in the loop!


Brighton Digital Festival 2017

BDF17September might be over now, but we’re still busy busy busy!

We were lucky enough to host the launch party for 2017’s Brighton Digital Festival – a celebration of the innovation and creativity behind everything and anything digital. With installations from the likes of our very own client (and Innovation award winner) Ithaca Audio and even special BDF17 cocktails being passed around, the night started the festival with a bang!

There’s still some fantastic events to happen, which you can find more information on here – there’s always something for everyone.



This afternoon (6/10) we’ll also be hosting Camouflage – a virtual reality and dance installation that gives its participants a playful immersive experience of the game of hide and seek and its viewer the opportunity to watch a match played out live and virtually between hunter and prey.

In this exciting new work, VR is used to create a new social game that plays on our instincts and opens up room for fun and sinister interpretation. Is this a future of gaming? With free entry, drop in at anytime during the exhibition time to watch or experience the various strategies at play in this engaging and fun interactive work.

Camouflage is a Renaud Wiser Dance Company commission funded by Arts Council England, South East Dance and The Chronus Arts Centre Shanghai and supported by the Brighton Digital Festival, the Lighthouse, Werks Central and Studio Wayne McGregor through the FreeSpace programme. A collaboration between digital artists Mária Júdová and Andrej Boleslavský, choreographer Patricia Okenwa and Renaud Wiser Dance Company.
