Brighton Open Air Theatre
Brighton Open Air Theatre (BOAT) is a new dedicated open air venue in Dyke Road, Hove built entirely with public donations.
BOAT is a unique space designed to provide an intimate atmosphere for audiences of up to 425 to enjoy live performance, spoken word and screenings under the sky.
BOAT is a charity, run by a volunteer committee of arts professionals to provide a venue for professional touring companies, local artists and community performances.
BOAT is open from May to September with an eclectic programme of classic performances, contemporary productions and surprising events. All this takes place in a magical wooded glade full of birdsong and with views down to the sea.
BOAT opened in May 2015 and the first theatrical run was The Globe’s Romeo & Juliet as part of Brighton Festival. Our 2015 season features new productions from local professional companies including Two Bins, Prodigal Theatre, Treason Show, DAFT and the Foundry Group.
The theatre was the vision of local playwright Adrian Bunting, who died in 2013 and left his vision to a group of friends. This is his legacy for the city he loved.
Everything’s better outdoors. Join us under the stars.
