Brighton Dome’s big Christmas extravaganza brings jaw-dropping circus fun with Super Sunday, a spectacular live show from Finland’s award winning Race Horse Company. Featuring an amusement park of human catapults, chaotic comedy and trampoline stunts, audiences will be on the edge of their seats throughout the performance.

Classical carols will fill the Concert Hall with the Brighton Festival Chorus Christmas Concert performed by the magnificent Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and singalong to uplifting Christmas tunes while supporting local charity The Choir With No Name, who work with homeless and marginalised people in the city. Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas is a new comedy show by former doctor and author of bestseller This is Going to Hurt, revealing the hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking stories from his time working in the health service. Ending the year in style on New Year’s Eve, Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra perform an afternoon concert of their stunning Viennese Gala with soprano Ailish Tynan.
