We make theatre for the people, by the people.

What does that mean? That means you, Brighton & Hove resident. Whoever you are. Because we think it’s important to make great shows about what matters most to all of us.

But it doesn’t have to be serious serious. Our original shows will entertain and inspire audiences who wouldn’t normally choose to go to the theatre. That means having fun together, as well as being interested and interesting. And it means making bold and brave work that is just as good as any professional theatre company, for enjoyment by the widest possible audience.

How will we involve that audience? Once a show is ready we perform in theatres and community centres across the city. We are currently working in partnership with the Brighton Festival to co-programme Your Place; two weekends of shows and workshops as part of the May Festival for the next 3 years.

Want to join in? Then simply contact us here. We’ll add you to our mailing list and let you know when we have new opportunities to get involved. We are actively fundraising to be able to create new partnerships with community organisations in the city. We want to offer more theatre workshops and create new shows that reflect the full diversity of lives in the city.

Brighton People’s Theatre is seeded by Greenhouse, a Farnham Maltings initiative, supported by the Unity Theatre Trust and funded by Arts Council England.

In May 2017 Brighton People’s Theatre became a registered Community Interest Company no: 10785813.
