Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival is a registered charity and we reach almost 669,000 people each year through our varied arts programme. This includes over 17,725 people locally who get involved in the arts, many who wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity. We also commission new work by emerging artists and run the Brighton Festival each May. Support from our community enables us to successfully deliver the various strands of the organisation.
Together, we have a rich history spanning over 200 years. The first Festival was held in 1967 and featured performances by Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins and Yehudi Menuhin.
As a charity and the south east's leading performing arts venue we inspire generations and create lasting memories.
Last year we began work on our transformational restoration project which will reveal long-lost heritage features, provide state-of-art facilities, improve provisions for our visitors and creating new spaces for everyone to explore their creativity.
