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.

And, no, 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 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? When we’re ready we’ll tour our shows that we’ve made and shows by other artists to community centres across the city. This will happen a few times a year as part of a good night out for local people. Once you’ve seen a show, maybe you’ll want to get creative yourself. Find out more about how we work here.

We are currently 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.

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.

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