Leave a Gift in Your Will

Help us to stay live and kicking by leaving us a gift in your will

Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival holds a special place in the hearts of many. Maybe you went to your first gig here, saw some spectacular circus during the Festival or have magical memories of one of our Christmas shows? 

Each year we present over 600 events from music to theatre, dance to comedy and literature to spoken word.  

Will you help us keep the arts alive for future generations by leaving us a legacy in your will?  

Did you know that leaving a gift in your will to Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival could reduce the amount of inheritance tax you pay? You could leave a percentage of your estate to us without affecting the amount you give to your loved ones.

'I was born in Brighton and fortunate to have so much theatre and arts in my hometown. Brighton Festival in May just brings the city to life. When making my Will I was asked by my solicitor if I wanted to leave money to charity. It really made me think of the charities I support now, in life. It made sense to leave something to Brighton Dome & Festival as I’ve had many years of pleasure from the arts.'

Clare Rogers, Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival Patron, on why she is leaving a gift in her Will
