Spring is here, and with May approaching, we have even more exciting theatre events ranging from comedy, clubs, music, talks, tributes, theatre productions, and performing arts. There is something for everyone, and Brighton truly has it all!

The month of May also brings us the brilliant and creative arts and culture festivals: Brighton Festival (4 May – 26 May) and Brighton Fringe Festival (3 May – 2 June). Events include theatre, comedy, art, and much more! These can be found in Brighton’s comedy and theatre spaces, which are listed below: Komedia, Brighton Dome, and the University of Sussex’s ACCA.
