Brighton Festival

6th – 28th May 2017

One of the best arts festivals in the UK. A real selection of diverse creative arts and performers. Brighton is easily accessible from Bognor Regis either by train or car.

This year guest director for Brighton Festival 2017 is the acclaimed recording artist, poet, playwright and novelist Kate Tempest.

Brighton Festival 2017 – which will take place from 6-28 May 2017 – features exclusives, world and UK premieres from a wide range of international, national and local artists and companies.

Guest Director Kate Tempest’s programme celebrates what she calls the ‘Everyday Epic’ – art that helps us connect to ourselves and others, explores our individual stories and differences, and encourages audiences to take a walk in someone else’s shoes. In her words: “Art is social. It should be a part of life. No big deal – just life itself.”

Many of Tempest’s interests, passions, and inspirations are explored in an eclectic line-up spanning theatre, dance, visual art, film, debate and spoken word.
