Brighton Catalyst Club Nov 14th
For October’s Catalyst Club ‘crazy cat lady’ Maureen Marsh revealed that mice can experience a fatal attraction to cats through the toxoplasmosis parasite (we’ve all been in those kind of relationships, haven’t we?), Ben Graham took us on a rollercoaster ride through the 60s subculture via a little-known spiritual teacher John Starr Cooke and Hastings’ Claudine Eccleston shared her passion for the early Jamaican Sound System and its influence on Rap.
In November we welcome back Ben Bailey (the politics of board games) and actor Doug Devaney plus a third guest TBC.

In November we learned from Anna MacLeod about the incredible heroics of the men in the second world war who were ‘human torpedoes’ and the lucky few who survived. Ben Bailey explored the apocalyptic visions of Hollywood Blockbusters, complete with his own homemade charts and graphs and Tom Cutler revealed the ‘happiest day of my life’ when he was diagnosed as having Asperger’s.
We end the year with our very first exclusively Lewesian line-up: author Lulu Ellender, speaker John Lawrenson and Thelma McGough who, amongst many other astonishing facts, was John Lennon’s first girlfriend!
Tickets in advance advisable.
