Brighton Festival 2017Public booking opens: Fri 24 Feb, 9am

Support us

You may know us as a premier performing arts venue offering not only an eclectic year round programme but the annual Brighton Festival each May. You may not know we are in fact a registered charity, and we rely on the generous support of our community and beyond.

How to support us

Why support us?

We are funded from a variety of sources including regular funding from the Arts Council and B&H Council but this only amounts to 34% of what is required. As public arts funding is being cut it is more crucial than ever to seek additional support.

We have to fundraise for the other 66% needed for us to operate and to continue to successfully run the various strands of the organisation.

Artistic programming

Through our own programme of events the aim is to provide a rich and diverse cultural offering to our audiences. Support via grants from various Trust & Foundations allows us to commission new work by emerging artists and helps us to deliver the Brighton Festival each year. 

Creative Learning team

Through the creative learning team we reach over 22,000 people in Brighton & Hove and beyond each year. They are continually exploring creative ways to get people involved in the arts, including many who wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity.  Support from our members and sponsors helps us to continue our community engagement work.

Historic venue

The Dome is a Grade 1 listed building so it requires a lot of love and attention to keep it ready to receive visitors. We have to maintain it continually and the support via our online donation facility has helped add funds to this cause.
