Hula hoop fans were a colourful site on the streets of Brighton yesterday (December 2) as they performed their skills throughout the city centre.

The flashmob led by expert hula hooper Jo Mondy started out at Old Steine before setting out to delight shoppers in Jubilee Square, Pavilion Gardens, New Road and Churchill Square.

Participants were raising money for Performers Without Borders as part of World Hoop Day, an international celebration of hula hooping.

Yesterday was Disabled persons day. Did the Argus give enough of a f**k to mention that?! No.


So we get this bullsh** fluff piece instead to distract people from REAL news.


Obvious what the Argus' priorities are. Tories in disguise.



Shame on you 'journalists'.
I'm afraid we weren't aware of any events taking place in the area as part of Disabled Persons Day.

To balance your comment, on Saturday we carried an extensive interview with Sir Nick Partridge, chief executive of the Terrence Higgins Trusst for World AIDS day, and covered a number of initiatives such as HIV testing in the build up to this event.

Last week we ran a series of features and stories every day focusing on homelessness and poverty in Brighton and Hove.

The Argus covers both serious and light news.

If you are holding an event or feel there is something happening in Brighton and Hove or the wider Sussex area, please contact the newsroom news@theargus.co.uk or call 01273 544512
