TODAY’S Timeout centres around sculptures and Brighton Festival in the Eighties and Nineties.

A sculpture made from what looks to be tree trunks is pictured outside St Peter’s Church in Brighton.

It was erected for Brighton Festival in May 1990.

A winged horse is also pictured being wheeled along in an old-fashioned baby’s pram as part of the opening procession of the Brighton Festival in the same year.

An unnamed man is pictured standing in front of some street art, also in May 1990.

A piece of wall art depicting birds, which was left over from the Brighton festival, is pictured at the Jubilee car park in Brighton in 1987.

Another Brighton Festival sculpture, a picture of a person wearing a hat running with two dogs is shown here on Brighton seafront.

The first Brighton Festival was held in 1967, and it has continued every year since.

In the 1968 Brighton Festival programme, artistic director Ian Hunter explained the original intentions of the festival by writing: “The aim of the Brighton Festival is to stimulate townsfolk and visitors into taking a new look at the arts and to give them the opportunity to assess developments in the field of culture where the serious and the apparently flippant ride side by side.”

Highlights from the 1990 Brighton Festival included performances from Bolshoi Ballet and Emo Phillips.
