Genre : Music - General


Meriel's Secret truly is one of a kind. Spun from Brighton's ukulele jams, it's developed its own folky-country-funky-rocky sound and applied it to original songs, from slowies to faster numbers.

Meriel and Irena weave their magic with soaring lead and rich harmony vocals, flute, harmonica and ukulele. Lynsey's magical fiddle is joined by nifty uke and guitar licks dripping from Paul's fingers, while the multi-talented Tom and Dave bind it all together on bass and cajon. That's Meriel's Secret.

Meriel's Secret has gigged around Brighton and performed on the Ukulele Stage at Brighton's annual festival, Paddle Round The Pier.

Fickle and Fluke are an acoustic oriented quartet which plays a first class selection of quality covers which range from blues to country to pop.

Vocally fronted by the beautifully matched voices of Amanda Marchant and Christine Connolly they present soaring ballads and catchy melodies with their lush harmonies.

Two ukuleles back the vocals with additional embellishment from violin, trumpet and guitars played by Mervyn Wallis and Steve Lawless. Their performance is always about the joy of playing and love of great music.

The Brunswick Profile Pic


The Brunswick has been transformed through an extensive refurbishment programme to become the premier music and arts venue in Hove. The owners are committed to providing quality, value for money and a friendly atmosphere.We believe that a pub is an essential part of any thriving community, and should be seen as a facility for the whole community. By encouraging local groups, we run a range of classes: acting, singing, painting, language, wine tasting; and have become a meeting place for a number of groups. With a large garden and a number of meeting rooms, we can offer space for most clubs, societies or social groups. If your looking for somewhere to host your book group, yoga class, dance class, debating club, and so on, give us a call, or better still, pop in. Support your local pub.

Built in the 1930’s, The Brunswick is a striking building with curved bays, turret roofs and brass crittall style windows. Much of the original paneling (the same as used in the Orient Express) has been rescued and restored, particularly in The Venue. Atmosphere and mood change as you move from the beautifully constructed sunny garden through the airy garden room to the bar (a fusion of the best of modern bar and traditional pub). Despite the high-tech sound and stage equipment, the music and arts Venue with its wood paneling, period lighting and fireplace retains a wonderfully cozy feel. Upstairs we have beautifully decorated rooms for meetings and private parties – see Function Room Hire

We offer a broad range of home cooked food every day. Accolades have included “Restaurant quality food at pub prices”; “The best Sunday Lunch in Brighton”; “As an American, I’m very critical of hamburgers – this is one of the best I’ve had anywhere.”
