Here’s a novel way to cope with a less-than-balmy day at the seaside: a wood-fired sauna right on the beach.
A hot box, inspired by Scandi saunas, is the setting for ‘guided bathing experiences’ at Brighton Fringe, England’s biggest arts festival. You can meditate, enjoy a little ‘leaf whisking’ (that’s where leaves move steam around and brush sauna-goers’ skin, FYI) and keep an eye on Brighton Pier while you sweat, before using the sea as a plunge pool.
There’s a bunch of other great events taking place over the final weekend of the Fringe too, like stand-up comedy, experimental theatre and silent-disco walking tours of the city, featuring interpretative dancing around Brighton landmarks. Arty!
Brighton Fringe Festival runs until Sun Jun 3.
