Brighton Festival 2020Public booking opens: Wed 19 Feb, 9am

Our Place

A FREE Community Celebration of Creativity

For the fourth year running we are thrilled to be working in partnership with the community steering groups: the Hangleton and Knoll Project, Hangleton Community Centre, the Manor Gym, Serendipity and Due East to enable local residents to make their vision for the festival come to life.

‘Our Place has opened a door that we do not want to close again.’ Valerie Foucher, Hangleton Community Centre Manager

Each of our Brighton Festival Guest Directors gets involved with the project, helping put together the programme of festival artists, and performing themselves.

‘Very moving and touching, brilliant more and more please!’ Audience member

Come and enjoy FREE afternoons of theatre, dance, music, crafts, games and creativity from both local and national artists. Visit for an hour or bring a picnic and stay for the whole afternoon. The day will finish with a family party compered by the wonderful Aida H Dee, featuring awesome music vibes, pop-up performances, dancing and food!
