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.
