Supporting the Brighton & Hove Arts Council

Brighton & Hove Arts Council relies on individual and business supporters, as well as group membership fees and sponsorship, as we receive no regular state aid.  If you feel you could benefit from a relationship with us please consider the options below.

Individuals – Formerly know as Individual Members, Individual Supporters get all the same benefits as before, plus more if you choose to become a Patron.  See below.

Businesses – There are many ways you can support us, and benefit your business too, with exposure on this website and in the printed Arts Diary.

Our website is a popular place where up to 2000* people go every month to find out what is on in the Brighton & Hove Area, and what the local not-for-profit scene is all about. (* pre-pandemic figures, but numbers are now growing)

The Arts Diary has now returned to its pre-covid distribution of 7000 copies*.  It is delivered to all members and supporters, and picked up from libraries, community hubs, pubs, coffee shops and many other locations. (* expected but not guaranteed for future editions).   To get your copy posted to you please become an Individual Supporter – see below
