Brighton Festival news: ‘The arts should be in our communities’ …

Latest update from Brighton Festival:


‘The arts should be in our communities’
Look back at Brighton Festival 2017 with Kate Tempest.

Brighton Festival 2017, with Kate Tempest as Guest Director, reached more new audiences than ever before. Reflecting Tempest’s belief that: ‘The arts should be in our communities, not only on elevated platforms or behind red velvet ropes’

Events took place across the city – from the South Downs to Brighton Marina to Woodvale cemetery – drawing a ticketed audience of over 81,000, the largest ever in the Festival’s 51-year-history. In this film we shine a light on some of this year’s flagship events and projects including new ventures The Storytelling Army, which saw a dynamic collective of storytellers from all walks of life pop up in locations from bus stops to Brighton pier; and Your Place, delivered in partnership with Brighton People’s Theatre, which brought a diverse line-up of free performances, workshops and activities Festival artists and local residents to the Hangleton and East Brighton communities.
