About the festival


Established in 1967, Brighton Festival has become one of the city's most enduring symbols of inventiveness and celebration over the past half century.


Renowned for its pioneering spirit and experimental reputation, Brighton Festival's inaugural programme controversially included the first ever exhibition of Concrete Poetry in the UK, alongside performances by Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins and Yehudi Menuhin.


Now one of Europe's leading arts festivals, Brighton Festival is known for its ambitious and daring programme that aims to make the most of the city's distinctive cultural atmosphere, drawing some of the most innovative artists and companies (and adventurous audiences) from the UK and around the world.
