Brighton Fringe Ltd is setting up a new immersive outdoor venue North of St. Peter's Church as part of Brighton Fringe 2023 called Caravanserai.
Within Caravanserai, this venue Luna Parc, is a 220 seated capacity blackout Big Top with option to remove seating and create 350 capacity standing venue.
The venue will be suitable for basic aerial rigging, will have a fixed lighting rig with a number of focusable fixtures and a PA system suitable for everything up to full band music nights.
The venue sits inside a fully authentic world made from a dazzling array of old fairground rides, retro french caravans, hoopla stalls and shoot out galleries with cocktail bars, chill out areas and food traders sitting seamlessly inside the curio filled world.
The mission, alongside the Caravanserai creative team is to create a central Brighton Fringe hub that will support both the Fringe and our wider community. It will not only provide a platform for local programmers and acts to take risks and perform; but also generate vital, sustainable revenue that will be reinvested into Brighton Fringe year on year.
We are looking for events that appeal to a wide audience and highlight the diversity in the current Fringe programme. The venue can support a broad range of programming including work by young people, families and children, music, theatre, comedy, cabaret, circus, workshops and talks and late night activities (club nights, silent disco).
Proposed site opening hours (subject to licence conditions):
Sunday - Wednesday: 11am - Midnight
Thursday - Saturday: 11am - 2am
We would love to hear from participants, programmers and local charity or community groups who have ideas about how they may use either the main venues or surrounding world.
Also available for applications are our 50 seater theatre, Junk Poets and the 200 capacity outdoor family and children's area. There is also a busking stage open to all Brighton Fringe performers and walkabout performance opportunities
