During the war the Pavilion was used as hospital for Indian serviceman. My understanding, from long ago, is that my old school- St Luke’s in the Queens Park area- was used in a similar way.
Dr Blighty is a project taking place in the Royal Pavilion Garden from 2pm – 10.30pm every day until Sat 28 May.
The aim is to ‘experience a dreamlike environment of immersive installations, ambient soundscapes and theatrical interludes, inspired by letters the soldiers sent back home’
Very poignant stuff. Lots to see at the Brighton Festival, but if you only get to see this light show then take the time.
The light show is on a ten minute loop from 9.30pm till 10.20 pm each night till Saturday 28th May. Arrive early for a good spot, although the projection can be seen far and wide.
