Local artist Bec Britain decorates the clock tower with a 1960’s inspired installation. Fanfare is a brash celebration of 50 years of the festival and a rallying call to artists and festivalgoers of the future. Expect to see giant trumpets and chequerboard flags in graphic black and white adorning this iconic Brighton landmark throughout May.Brighton Festival would like to thank Brilliant Brighton, the city’s Business Improvement District, for their support in making the clock tower installation a reality.

"For me, this piece was an opportunity to celebrate the breadth of Brighton Festival and call out to the next generation of artists which was very important."
