Choosing a venue can be a daunting prospect; there are hundreds of unique venues and spaces in Brighton & Hove, many of them ideal for use during the Fringe.
Brighton Fringe spaces and venues are diverse; some run as venues year-round, some popup for the festival time only and some are churches and community halls. This is worth bearing in mind when approaching your venue, as the venue’s experience of Brighton Fringe may vary. It is important that you are clear about your aims and ambitions for your event from the start.
Do your research, look at venue websites, talk to people and see what events have been hosted previously by your chosen venue. A good place to start is by creating an Eventotron event profile and looking in the 'STEP 2: Apply to Venue' section of Brighton Fringe 2024. The video below walks through the process of looking for venues in Eventotron (this is from last year but the process is almost identical).
You can use various parameters to filter your results e.g. capacity, staging space, and technical facilities. It is best then to contact the venue directly for more information. You can of course use a space that does not appear in the Venue Browser or has never been used before. When setting up a new venue, check out the venue's area for useful guides and advice, or get in touch with our Artist Services team.
If you are looking to use a space owned by Brighton & Hove City Council, including parks, all the information about the application and licensing can be found on the BHCC website
The video above shows you how to see all of the Brighton Fringe venues that have registered and how to connect with them in Eventotron. Do get in touch with our Artist Services team if you have any questions, email [email protected] or call 01273 764907.
