What is it?
The Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe back is in its early summer spot, having been shifted to late 2021 and cancelled altogether in 2020. Renowned for showcasing the best the arts has to offer, from modern dance to comedy via music and film, the Brighton Festival has been running in its fully fledged form since 1967. Laurence Olivier, at the time a Brighton resident, even performed. The Fringe runs at the same time and includes the best in alternative arts.
Book tickets or head to the seaside and stroll down to the Spiegeltent in the Old Steine and see what takes your fancy.
When does it run?
The Brighton Festival 2022 runs until 29 May, while the Brighton Fringe keeps the party going for a further week, with its last events on 5 June.
