The History of Brighton Festival

with Philip Morgan

This special talk will take an in-depth look at the history of Brighton Festival. From the Summer of Peace in 1814 when the end of the Napoleonic wars was celebrated with a street party for 7,000 people, to 2009 when a traffic jam was caused on the Brighton bypass by people queuing to experience Anish Kapoor’s C-Curve.
