Brighton People’s Theatre

If all the world’s a stage, then theatre is for everyone. Curtain up. Come and play.

Brighton People’s Theatre is changing the way we make theatre and how we tell the tales of our city, for our city. It’s theatre for all: theatre without boundaries.

In 2019 Brighton People’s Theatre is building a group of people who want to explore theatre-making with professional artists. This is an invitation to come along and try one of our activities. You can come to as much or as little as you like.

LATEST NEWS: We are building a theatre company. You can now book onto our new weekly theatre workshops at The Brighthelm Centre in Brighton. Weekly drop ins in the centre of Brighton from January 6th. If you are over 18, have a BN postcode and have not worked as a professional artist then this is for you. Come and play. Pay what you decide. Book here.


There are a range of activities you can get involved in from workshops to play-reading groups, to Theatre Clubs where you can watch a show and talk about it with a group of people afterwards. More information and book here.

Please note:

All events are open to anyone over the age of 18 living in the city of Brighton and Hove or with a BN postcode who has never worked as a professional artist.

Everything is sold on a Pay What You Can basis. We are determined that cost should not stop you from being part of this. We are placing trust in you to be honest about how much you can earn and what you can afford. If you are on a low income we might expect you to pay anything between 1p and £3. If you are earning around £20k we might expect you to pay between £3 and £7. If you are earning over £30k we might expect you to pay between £7 and £15. You decide.

If travelling to any of these events is going to be difficult for you financially we have a pot of money to pay for public transport. Please contact us and we will talk to you about this in confidence.
