Brighton Music Re-takes the Stage
Brighton Dome, alongside many of Brighton’s music venues have joined together to bring you Live Is Alive! A series of events taking place to help protect Brighton’s music scene and happening over the course of four consecutive Saturdays (17th October – 7th November). The events will include a series of live gigs featuring local artists and bands and a wide variety of music genres. All of which will be programmed and presented in collaboration with grassroots music venues.
Brighton Dome plans to host the small-scale performances in its Concert Hall, which is opening to audiences for the first time since March 2020. But, don’t worry, they’ve been given the go-ahead on safety measures. Tickets will be limited to 250, and seating will be in a cabaret-style format. Viewers will also have the option to watch online via livestream.
Andrew Comben, Chief Executive, Brighton Dome added:
“We are delighted to be able to work together with the city’s grassroots music venues, to offer a place for emerging artists to play, and support the venues that aren’t able to open at this stage. These events will be our first step towards bringing live performances back in a safe format and we hope audiences will feel confident and excited about returning to one of the city’s most treasured spaces.”
This event is a great opportunity to both raise awareness for the financial difficulties that artists and venues have faced since the beginning of COVID-19 and lockdown, and now support their re-opening.
