Supporting Not-For-Profit arts in Brighton, Hove & Beyond


The annual Brighton Festival is now under-way and many of our group members are taking part in this and the Brighton Fringe running from 5th May to 4th June.  You can find all our groups’ activities in the current edition of Arts Diary, widely available in and around Brighton & Hove, on our online calendar, or you can now access the online print version of Arts Diary on our website.

Also on our website you will find our new Blog, updated on a regular basis with articles, member interviews and more, giving a wider view and better understanding of many of our group members who are involved with fine art, singing, dancing, theatre, music, poetry, and more.  And don’t forget to keep up to date with us on Twitter and Facebook.  

The next edition of Arts Diary, covering June – August 2017, will be available towards the end of May.






Brighton & Hove Arts Council was founded in 1974 by a group of enthusiasts to support and promote the not-for-profit arts sector in Brighton, Hove and beyond. We are a registered charity that continues to be run entirely by unpaid volunteers.

As well as our Individual Members, we currently have over sixty Group Members in the fields of theatre, music, dance, poetry, debating, painting, sculpture, singing, local radio and the written word.

We do not offer grants, and have no discretionary funding available.
