Brighton Dome’s Chief Executive, Andrew Comben, launched the Dome’s autumn season recently.The season has a glittering line up of events that will brighten up the dark evenings to come. There are two mini festivals: a celebration of Shakespeare with international and local theatre groups presenting Macbeth and Shakespeare a la Carte, as well as workshops; and Storyville, with 3 days of women’s literature events ranging from Clare Short to Lionel Shriver.
This bumper season also hails the legendary music of Paco Peña, the brilliant and popular choreographer and dancer Akram Khan, a special recital from the Heath Quartet, young theatre especially commissioned for Brighton Dome in Robin and the Big Freeze, the hip hop extravaganza, Breakin’ Convention, a laugh-athon at the Comedy Festival, and a whole Christmas season of events that truly sparkle.
Brighton Dome is open daily to the public, with the Foyer Café Bar open Tues-Sun from 10am to 5pm, plus bank holiday Mondays, trying to encourage people to experience the wonderful building outside event times. You’ll find a warm welcome from the attentive staff there.
