Dance to take your breath away

Led by Artistic Director and former Brazilian Olympic gymnast, Inês Bogéa, the formidable Brazilian dance company São Paolo Dance Consortium make their UK debut with a collection of spellbinding performances on the Concert Hall stage. Plus, Olivier award-winning hip-hop dance choreographer, Botis Seva, premieres his new work, Until We Sleep, in the newly refurbished Corn Exchange.

Hailed by The Times as ‘brave, intelligent entertainment’, local dance heroes Vincent Dance Theatre present their new production PLAY, and Ballet Theatre UK’s family-friendly adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream gets ready to dazzle and enchant this Easter.

Critically acclaimed theatre

Brighton’s own Tim Crouch opens the spring theatre programme with critically acclaimed one-man play, Truth’s a Dog Must to Kennel, inspired by Shakespeare’s King Lear, whilst writer/performer Chris Thorpe explores tough conversations around family, politics and nuclear weapons in A Family Business.

Paying tribute to cultural icons from Andy Warhol to Barbara Cartland, Tits & Teeth combines dance, drag and mime in a one-of-a-kind variety show, and we mark International Women’s Day in March with What’s On Stage’s top new play for 2024 Wish You Weren’t Here.

For something with a bit more bite, one of Edinburgh’s recent ‘Best of the Fringe’ plays comes to Brighton from multi-award winning, disability-led theatre company FlawBored.

A world of music at your fingertips

From 5-star rated musician and vocalist Camille O’Sullivan, to the 'one-person music festival' international beatboxing sensation SK Shlomo, look no further for live music inspiration this spring.

The beloved New Regency Orchestra return to Brighton with their unique sound of golden age mambo, Latin jazz and contemporary London spin, while award-winning composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Nitin Sawhney, stops off at the seaside with his new album, Identify.

Classical music highlights include London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Family Ties and Pictures at an Exhibition. Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra performs Sea Songs, Wagner’s Dream and The Soldier’s Tale and there’s an International Women’s Day special, Celebrating Women, highlighting female composers. 

The popular Coffee Concert event series also continues, launching the new year with the Castalian String Quartet, and African Night Fever welcome 2023 Womex Award winning, afro-psychedelic BCUC to Brighton for the very first time.

Perfect for the kids

As part of the season, we’re hosting a series of weekend children’s theatre shows in our newly restored Studio Theatre.

Join Grooving With Pirates for a swashbuckling, jazz fueled adventure, or perhaps instead a team of magical gardeners celebrating the wonder and weirdness of nature in Four Seasons.

Take a zig-zagging journey with someone who can’t make head nor tail of life’s rules in Boxed In, and for older children, TV Gastronaut Stefan Gates’ hilarious, highly explosive Rude Science for spectacular stunts and giggles all around.

Ahead of each children’s show, why not make a day of it and book one of the Playmakes family craft workshops in the new Brighton Dome creative community space, Anita’s Room?

You’re having a laugh!

Our comedy programme is brimming with household names and rising talent. Make sure to catch TV stars Rob Delaney and Joe Lycett at Live At Brighton Dome, plus we’ve got stand-up shows from Miles Jupp, Lucy Beaumont and more.

Spoken word and beyond

We’re excited to be hosting some of the most lively and fascinating talks on Brighton Dome stages this Spring, including history buff Lucy Worsley, Professor Brian Cox and legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

For a more intimate night out, audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities can enjoy The Bar At The Edge Of Time, a unique and spectacular, multisensory night out, complete with maestro mixologists and crooners.

If that’s not enough, Brighton Dome In-House artist and acclaimed spoken word performer, AFLO. the poet, returns to the Studio Theatre for more poetry nights, showcasing upcoming talent and special guests.

Don't miss a moment this spring.
