Patrons Circle

“There is a real sense of purpose to be supporting a cultural institution and in these days of austerity, it’s critical that institutions such as Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival continue and flourish. What I most enjoy is the knowledge that we are supporting and, in our own way, taking Brighton Festival forward. And after my first full festival, it’s also remarkably good fun!” - Donald Reid

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.
