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

Flathampton does one better than an Oscar! They get an Argus Angel!

We were delighted when we found out Royal and Derngate would be bringing Flathampton to the Brighton Festival so it’s with great pleasure that we reveal they have won an Argus Angel for the show. Well done guys!

Flathampton takes you on an amazing interactive journey round the biggest playmat you will ever see – and then some!

Our visitors valiantly collected Flathampton money, spent it at the Flathampton shops, iced some Flathampton cakes and even tried their hands at working in the hospital, the makeover salon, the music shop and for Flathampton TV news. Some grownups even went to the Flathampton disco we heard.

The Argus Angel Awards were introduced in 2007 to award artistic excellence during the Brighton Festival. From theatre and dance to music, live literature and exhibitions – The Argus Angels are presented to artists and performers who truly stand out from the crowd.

The Argus team of critics are out each day reviewing events night and day to make sure they don’t miss any performance worthy of a handsome golden statue. Based on the famous Herald Angels of The Edinburgh Festival, the trophies are carved by hand and carefully flown down from Scotland in the suitcase of the sculptor himself. They are awarded for innovation, great work and originality.
