Rose Collis will be at the Brighton History Centre on 17 July to sign copies of the ‘New Encyclopaedia of Brighton’ from 12.00 noon to 4pm.
Twenty years after the original ‘Encyclopaedia of Brighton’ was published, the fascinating, informative and entertaining ‘New Encyclopaedia of Brighton’ by acclaimed biographer Rose Collis combines the best of the original text with hundreds of new subjects, starting with Abattoirs and ending with the Zap Club.
In between are sections that reflect the town’s rich, diverse and quirky history, as well as the many changes that have occurred in the last two decades. These include major sections on Black Brighton, Foodie Brighton, Gay Brighton, Green Brighton, Jewish Brighton, Economy, Shops and Businesses, past and present, and all the major streets and neighbourhoods.
The book also features scores of new illustrations, maps and photographs that reflect nearly five centuries of the changing face of Brighton.
The ‘New Encyclopaedia of Brighton’ can also be purchased at the History Centre priced £20.
