This place has become something of a safe haven for us over the past few months; everyone is so nice and relaxed. It used to be a bank so you can sit in a real life bank vault, which is always a plus.

It’s a 24 hour mini-supermarket that we live less than 30 seconds from. Don’t really need to say much else.

Grand Parade, BN2 9QB

Green Door Store

I guess it’s one of Brighton’s foremost venues; a really nice space and we’ve played and been to so many great shows there.

Lower Goods Yard, Brighton Train Station, BN1 4FQ

Just a really, really good music shop. It’s also trebled in size since we’ve been living here which is a great thing to see.
