'Brighton Festival does things that no other Festival does'... leading with the largest Children's Parade in Europe this year under the theme dream again and closing with a World Record attempt for the Table Tennis game ever, with hundreds of events in between to bring people together. 

'We'll never get there if we can't imagine better... the arts are the workshop of hope' and Frank hopes it well be a 'bundle of joy' and a 'tonne of fun' for everyone who takes a chance to try something new and 'believe in the power of 'magic and wonder'.
