Do you want to be in a new film about Brighton?

This term we’re working with Brighton-based film and TV (EastEnders) writer Kenny Emson. Inspired by ideas from BPT members, Kenny will write a script for us about Brighton life which captures this moment in time as we emerge from lockdown.

Over the six weeks, we will rehearse the script. We will then bring in a filmmaker who will film members performing the script on the stage at The Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts (ACCA) at Falmer on the 12 and 13 July (in a covid safe environment of course). The final film will be showcased at ACCA on Tuesday 20 July.

Do you want the buzz of performing on a stage under lights, but without the nerves of a live performance? Sign up and commit to all six-week rehearsals and be part of a film to be proud of.

Our online workshops are for those who are shielding or unsure about returning to face-to-face activities.

  • DATES: Monday 7 June – Monday 12 July 2021 (sign up for the full six weeks)
  • TIME: 1.30 pm – 3 pm
  • VENUE: ONLINE – we will send you a Zoom link once you have booked

We prioritise people who have had the fewest opportunities to access arts and cultural activities. Our activities are open to people over the age of 18, with a BNpostcode, and who have never worked professionally in the arts.

COST: £10 per workshop (£60 total) OR
