Patrons Circle

“There is a real sense of purpose to be supporting a cultural institution such as Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival. It’s also remarkably good fun!” - Donald Reid

“There are the practical benefits, but it’s the less tangible benefit of feeling that we are contributing that means the most to us” - Margaret & Andrew Polmear

The Patrons Circle is a growing group of creative & adventurous people with a passion for exploring and supporting the arts, culture and heritage of Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival. The support we receive from patrons helps ensure that Brighton & Hove remains the exciting and artistically rich city that it is today. In return, patrons are treated to events and experiences which bring them closer to the arts and into the heart of the organisation.
