Sensational Spoken Word

On 4 March, join us for a very special poetry night spotlighting powerful, diverse female voices.

Award-winning writer and poet Akila Richards performs fresh from launching her first poetry pamphlet, Ritual For A Mango, at the Black International Speculative Writing Festival; joined by Jenny Foulds, 2021 Scottish Poetry Slam Champion and host of the riotous spoken word night, Rebel Soapbox.

The evening is led by AFLO.thepoet, spoken word artist, activist, and our In-House Artist who embraces creative expression to challenge the status quo and address topics like racism and mental health.

A trip to the seaside

Wish You Weren’t Here is a heart-warming show about a mother and daughter who take a trip to the coast, with hilarious results.

The touching comedy dives into family relationships, growing up and how to find your way in the world. Catch it 7-8 March at the Studio Theatre.

A mighty flow of music

Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra brings a dazzling celebration of women in music to the Brighton Dome Concert Hall on International Women's Day (8 March) with Mighty River: Celebrating Women.

The magnificent roster showcases female composers and champions diverse voices and talent.

Works include the momentous Mighty River by award-winning composer, pianist and jazz singer Errollyn Wallen; and the lyrical Mississippi River Suite by the incredible Florence Price, the first African American symphonic composer. 

Plus, a special performance from the multi-talented Ayanna Witter-Johnson, performing her very own eclectic fusion of classical, jazz, reggae, soul and R&B.

This mighty concert is not to be missed!

Weird and wonderful

Looking for some laughs? The award-winning comedian Lucy Beaumont is going to let loose on her show The Trouble & Strife on 9 March, a rollercoaster world of surreal stories, weird anecdotes and bizarre journeys through modern-day womanhood!
