it’s goodbye from us for 2018…

Phew, it’s been one HELL of a ride since we first sprang into existence earlier this year (April, in fact!). We’ve brought you everything from food news and reviews, festival bests, weekend guides and hosted a talk on the city’s creative scene. We’ve celebrated the city’s independent businesses as well as the people and community spirit that make Brighton & Hove such a wonderful place to live.

We’ve loved every minute of it, but we’re also ready to get horizontal on the sofa with an almighty box of gooey selection chocolates and the most Christmassy of Christmas TV programming. We need to recharge for all the exciting plans (as well as some yet-to-be-announced collaborations!) we’ve got for BOTI in 2019!

We’d like to thank all our readers for their support and we’re looking forward to bringing you even more of the best that Brighton & Hove has to offer in the New Year.

We’ll be popping up sporadically over the festive period – look out for part 2 of our guide to New Year’s Eve: Staying in (part 1 is here) – but our regular daily service will resume on Monday, 7th January.

Until then, we’d like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a suitably marvellous start to the New Year!


Team BOTI, aka Amy and Betty x
