Exquisite sculptures in glass, inspired by naturallism, which are highly sought-after today by the most dedicated art collectors. Drawing inspiration from Japanese art and far-eastern styles.

Brighton's Madeira Drive makes the perfect venue for displaying and performing vehicals of all kinds. Motor racing used to extend all round this purpose built (in 1905) circuit, which ran along both the top and the lower levels of the drive. Motorcars and motorbikes raced around this circuit in two's side by side at high speeds under supervision from The Brighton & Hove Motor Club. The club also founded in 1905 being the oldest motoring club in the UK, which now oversees the National Speed Trials every September and also provides marshaling for the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run every November. Since 1952 the run has been held on the first Sunday of that month.
The 'Emancipation Run' (or so called 'Red Flag Run', when a man waving a red flag had to preceed the following motor vehical befor the repeal of this act). The event dates back to 1896 when only thirty cars participated, seventeen of which actualy finished the course, the winner took two and a half hours to arrive! Medals were issued for completing the run and are awarded to this day for every finisher to arrive in Brighton befor the closing time set at 4.30pm.
This event has been organised by the Royal Automobile Club (R.A.C.) since 1930 and at the time was commonly described as "The Old Crocks Race", a description that is very much frowned upon nowadays, as the rally is not a race but a challange to get from London to Brighton (yes, in the best possible time, bar breakdowns and hazards, of which there are many). These cars are distingquised veterans and should be refered to as such!
One truly historic vehical to take part in the 2000 run, was the Bristol Industrial Museum's steam car, manufactured in 1875, which completed the run in an impressive time of nine hours! For further particulars on this years run, please go to: www.LBVCR.com
Record crowds of more than 200,000 spectators attended the anual Speed Trials on 10th September 2005 for the centenary celebrations. The fastest speed achieved by a car during that years event was 150 mph and for a motorbike 164 mph! In addition to the exhilirating drive by both cars and bikes, the following weekend saw the anual Ace Cafe Reunion with an estimated 80,000 motorcycles in attendance from all parts of the UK (and Europe). A single gathering of 60,000 ridding in enmasse!
