Comedian Mark Watson was due to perform his hit-show How You Can Almost Win at Brighton Festival this month. Here is a special message he has sent for all his Brighton fans.
Help us continue with what we do best
Arts venues and festivals across the country are facing extremely difficult times. In March, 65% of our income disappeared overnight due to coronavirus and the cancellation of Brighton Festival was the first in its 53-year history. As a charity we believe the arts inspire and are a catalyst for positive change. Now more than ever, we need the arts to brighten our days and lift our spirits. Help us continue with what we do best - to support artists and partners and return stronger for audiences and the wider community. Please consider a donation to Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival.
