This year we’re asking you to join the Pay-it-Forward movement and help more people experience Brighton Festival.

Pay an extra £5 when you book your tickets and we’ll match it to give a £10 Pay-It-Forward Festival Ticket Voucher to someone unable to afford the opportunity. Vouchers will be distributed at Your Place, local schools and our partner organisations.
