Brighton Festival is three weeks of Festival Fun!
Since 1967, for three weeks every May, Brighton Festival has been an annual celebration of music, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, theatre, family and outdoor events.
In 2016 Brighton Festival celebrated 50 years of commissioning and producing innovative arts and culture with Guest Director Laurie Anderson at the helm.
In 2017, we welcomed Guest Director Kate Tempest.
This year we are delighted to welcome visual artist David Shrigley as our 2018 Guest Director.
Brighton Festival has become one of the city’s most enduring symbols of inventiveness and celebration over the past half century. It takes place in venues both familiar and unusual all across Brighton & Hove.
Renowned for its pioneering spirit and experimental reputation, Brighton Festival’s inaugural programme controversially included the first ever exhibition of Concrete Poetry in the UK, alongside performances by Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins and Yehudi Menuhin.
This years line-up is equally as exciting!
D2D Sussex are delivering very handy mini guides throughout Brighton & Hove now.
Now one of Europe’s leading arts festivals, Brighton Festival is known for its ambitious and daring programme that aims to make the most of the city’s distinctive cultural atmosphere, drawing some of the most innovative artists and companies (and adventurous audiences) from the UK and around the world.
