Wonderland is a project by self-taught artists Sarah Watson and Will Hanekom on a theme which has captured their imagination. New and diverse works in a variety of media - film, painting, illustration, drawing and photography - reflect their interpretation of and artistic responses to the theme.

As Will says, “everyone has their own Wonderland. I have explored what this word means to me with character driven illustrations and scenery. My Wonderland art very much stems from my dreams; they express the surreal, the wonderful and the nightmares”.

Sarah sees Wonderland as “topsy turvey, a place of dreams. My Wonderland is full of colour, a window to other worlds. I relate to the character Alice; she is in all of us, our dreams, imagination and craziness”.

The exhibition at The Regency Town House is a showcase event, the culmination of six month’s intensive artistic activity and the first time Sarah and Will have exhibited their work together.

Wonderland is a HOUSE Biennial Associate Artist Exhibition, supported by Arts Council England.

Itab Azzam and Dina Mousawi are from that war-torn country of Syria and their book is a beautiful testament to their love of thefood that they grew up with and the evening’s supper dishes will be taken from their book.

Andy Lynes and Andrew Kay are both well known gentlemen about town in Brighton. Andy Lynes is the editor of Brighton’s Best Cookbook: Recipes from the Top 20 Restaurants which features 100 recipes that reflect the city’s diverse dining scene and we’ll be quizzing Andy on the best Brighton restaurants.  We’ll also be talking to the man who is celebrating 25 years of writing his weekly column about all things Brighton & food (it's a dirty job but someone's got to do it) Andrew Kay will be in the house!

Dine Like a Servant

Saturday 18th November

How often do you get invited to time travel?  The Regency Town House invites you back to 1827 to become a servant for the night.  You will be eating in our kitchen for the first time since the servants left in the 19th century.  You will be enjoying the foods those servants might have eaten on special occasions.  There will be Regency punch (to the Prince's own recipe), there will be boiled hams, meat pyes , blancmange & chocolate tarts.

Unfortunately this event was fully booked within a day but we will be offering more events in 2018.  Please join our email list for priority booking and for news about the Town House and its continuing restoration. www.rth.org.uk/subscribe
