The Circus is Leaving Town

Remade in Brighton having been sorting and packing up various materials this week as our temporary stay in ‘Top Produce’ unit nine is coming to a close.  The demolition of the existing site at Circus Street will start in July, with construction scheduled to begin this November.

This Wednesday evening was an opportunity to say cheerio to our remaking and upcycling community, with a little party celebration -thanks to Cathedral group; the urban regeneration hosts. Now it’s time to draw the shutters down.

Here are a few pick n’ mix moments over our colourful stay in the the old market, it’s been full of exciting adventures and has allowed Remade In Brighton to kick-start some new projects within the Tarner Community and Brighton Youth Centre.
