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


The annual Brighton Festival gets ever closer, starting off with the Children’s Parade on May 6th and many of our group members are taking part in the Brighton Fringe events running from 5th May to 4th June.  Before this we have our own annual Spring Art Exhibition at the Friends’ Meeting House in Ship Street, Brighton from 26th to 29th April. 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.  Already we have blogs on our next poetry competition, and on dance, art, singing and theatre.  And don’t forget to keep up to date with us on Twitter and Facebook.





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.
