Making your visit as safe as possible

The following safety measures enable us to get Live events back into the venues and outdoor spaces and we really appreciate your co-operation in making it possible for us to present Brighton Festival by following these guidelines and keeping each other, our staff and the performers safe.


When at the event the following procedures are in place: 

● We’ve reduced our capacity to make it possible for everyone to keep space and enjoy the event safely.

● There are one way systems, signage and markers in place to help you socially distance.  

● To avoid contact, where possible we will scan your electronic tickets from paper or from your mobile device.
● We have considered cleaning at all our activities during Brighton Festival.

● When you’re visiting please sanitise your hands on arrival and then regularly. Hand sanitiser is available at the event.


To make sure everyone is safe please adhere to the following:

●All those in your party must be part of the same household group or bubble to help us manage social distancing at this event.

● Please remain 2m away from people outside of your household as much as possible, and where this is not possible, at a minimum of 1m.

●Each member of the party over the age of 16 must now ‘check in’ using the Track and Trace QR code or by providing contact details to staff on arrival. To help save time and aid social distancing please download the NHS Track and Trace venue check in app for yourself and also encourage the rest of your party to do so before arrival.

●Please bring your mask. We are encouraging our visitors to wear a face-covering at our ticketed activities outdoors as a further reassurance to others, particularly when there are queues or other busier sections to pass through. See our FAQs for more information about our face coverings policy. 

●Please avoid bringing bags to any event so we can speed up entry and minimise contact risks.
