Brighton Festival 48th edition kicks off this Saturday

Brighton Festival, England’s largest annual festival, takes place from Saturday 3rd to Sunday 25th May 2014. Now in its 48th year the festival welcomes the critically-acclaimed choreographer Hofesh Shechter as their sixth Guest Director, who has put together and innovative and ambitious programme – since 2009 each Festival has seen a major cultural figure take the reins as Guest Director to help shape that year’s programme.

As always, a great celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events is coming, taking place in venues both familiar and unusual across Brighton & Hove for three weeks. With 448 performances, 147 events in 34 venues across the city, 37 premieres, exclusives and co-commissions and 26 free events, over 500,000 people are expected.
