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

Dr Blighty

An ambitious new project inspired by a remarkable story of the First World War, Nutkhut's Dr Blighty remembers an unexpected episode in Brighton's history when the Royal Pavilion Estate became a military hospital for wounded Indian soldiers. Directed by Ajay Chhabra with design by Tom Piper (Tower of London Poppies), a week of installations in Royal Pavilion Garden is accompanied by two concerts at Brighton Dome marrying classical music from East and West.
