Get ready for a special Japanese-themed edition of one of Brighton’s favourite institutions, The Catalyst Club! Hosted by Cheeky Guides creator, Dr. Bramwell, the Catalyst Club is a night dedicated to the singular passions of everyday folk and has been a Brighton institution for over 7 years, playing host to 100s of interactive and entertaining talks. Each night three speakers take to the stage to share their knowledge and passion, followed by an informal Q&A.  As one satisfied punter put it: ‘the Catalyst is TED for everyone.’ Expect to be thrilled, fascinated and surprised from start to finish.
