Brighton Festival 2019Public booking opens: Fri 24 Feb, 9am

Our Place - Manor Gym, Brighton

It’s a community takeover - after two incredibly successful festivals, Your Place is becoming Our Place. 

For the third year running we’ve been working in partnership with Brighton People’s Theatre, Due East, Hangleton and Knoll Project, and the community steering committee to enable local residents to make their vision come to life. This year the communities have taken control of the event, bringing more free family-friendly theatre, dance, music, games, activities and workshops to Hangleton and East Brighton.

Highlights include:
Apocalyptic Circus -  My House
A circus theatre experience for little people and their families; look through the doors and windows of this magical, quirky structure and explore the habits and routines of a home. 

Upswing – Catch Me
A playful and dynamic pop up style performance and installation blending dance, acrobatics, object manipulation and installation. Alongside the two lively Our Place Saturdays, bespoke performances will be popping up in community spaces throughout the Festival.
