Brighton & Hove Arts Council promotes the not-for-profit arts sector in this area of  Sussex.  Our quarterly Arts Diary, widely circulated in the area, and our online Arts Calendar show “what’s on” .   We currently have over sixty Group Members in the fields of theatre, music, poetry, debating, painting, sculpture, singing, local radio and others.  You can join us as an individual member and have Arts Diary sent to you by post.  

We are a Registered Charity (number 270293)


BHAC is grateful for the financial support it receives from Brighton and Hove City Council and from its Principal Sponsor, the law firm Coffin Mew (which has a long established presence along the South Coast and now, as of June 2015, in Brighton)
