Unwind Brighton is a weekend event with a marketplace and workshops. There’s also apparently a printed guide planned which will include nice things like a free pattern by Joji Knits and the design contest’s winning entry by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade.
There are many classes and workshops during the event. There are still workshops with some places and 2nd runs of some workshops have been opened up.
I signed up for a workshop by the lady organizing the event, Dani Sunshine.

Map of Unwind
On the Unwind chat thread, a user named Dutte created a map of the locations. That is super handy.
Admittedly it is a far hop down to the south of England. Even Louise of Knit British spoke of suffering from “FOMO” (fear of missing out). Which is a terrible affliction. I only just heard about it, but I know exactly what she means.
Brighton is beautiful
I’ve been to Brighton before. It’s lovely. I’m sort of at the “what to pack stage now. I have to bring work clothes for the following week, so I’m going to look like I’m at work unless I pack some extras… but YARN and FIBRE needs space. These are good problems to have. If the weather is really fine though you could actually swim! I can bring a swimsuit just in case.
Here’s a good map of the beach there, it made me laugh!
