I’m delighted to be adding some new dates for Notorious Women of Brighton and Notorious Women of Hove walks to the Brighton Fringe Festival again this year. This Spring will also see the return of Notorious Women of Kemp Town! I’m doing a mixture of ‘official’ tours and ‘pop-up’ tours this time. You can purchase tickets for the official tours from the Fringe box-office as usual or just turn up, but you need to let me know if you intend to come to a pop-up tour via this website as they will be weather and interest-dependent. Details below…

I went on Louise’s Notorious Women of Hove tour on 6 May and can’t recommend it highly enough. I’d lived around these streets for years and never realised that every corner held such amazing stories, starting with St Anns Well’s Gardens where we set off from.
I urge you all to get out and explore your neighbourhood with Louise – see Hove with new eyes!
