What Have Our Venues Been Up To?

As independent promoters, the support from our relationships with local venues is incredibly important, without our amazing Brighton grassroots where would we be?! Throughout the ongoing circumstances and multiple lockdowns our venues have been keeping busy, so here’s a look over what they’ve been up to since we last saw them:

The Hope and Ruin

Hope and Ruin

This one of a kind bar has introduced ‘Tuesday Takeover’ where each week an upcoming local artist takes over their Instagram page. These artists have included the likes of Gender Roles and CLT DRP.

We love seeing venues supporting local artists and this idea is a really unique way to provide them with a large platform to engage with a local Brighton audience.

Komedia

Komedia – Comedy / Music / Club / Cabaret / Food / Drink

This comedy, music, arts and overall entertainment venue has taken time whilst being closed to the public to conduct a refurbishment! Their Instagram features images of a new dance floor being sanded down which we can’t wait to tear it up once again in a few months time!

The Rose Hill

The Rose Hill, Rose Hill Terrace, Brighton, Music Venue and Arts Hub, formerly The Rose Hill Tavern.

Each month the fun, artsy, community space that is, The Rose Hill have kept us entertained with a ‘Channel 0 Test Transmission’ Zoom. Along with international talent, they have also been showcasing local music, art, films, performances and live visuals. Each month has a different theme, this month it’s ‘Interplanetary Communication’ and tickets are free apart from a donation of your choice. Sign up for this months event here: Channel 0 Test Tranmission #6 : Interplanetary Communication Tickets, Sat 27 Feb 2021 at 21:00 | Eventbrite

Green Door Store

The Green Door Store

In January this unique venue turned 10 years old and as a celebration released their own merchandise, made to order, to be ‘green’ and minimise waste with all proceedings going to #saveourvenues! To get yours follow this link: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/save-the-rossi-bar

Chalk

Chalk – Brighton (chalkvenue.com)

Despite the current circumstances Chalk has been thriving over lockdown booking some incredible artists for the near future. These include a socially distanced Shame band, a sold-out YungBlud concert and our very own Pompoko this September! https://www.instagram.com/p/CJ8UuYlHbXY/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Brighton Dome

Support the arts / Brighton Dome

Since the socially distances ‘Live is Alive’ events at Brighton Dome back October last year yet another lockdown was put in place! However, this venue haven let it phase them and, as part of the government’s Kickstart Scheme, have been actively working with Brighton Festival and Future Creators UK to become a gateway organisation for creative culture in the South East. Already they’ve secured more than 80 paid work placements for young people across 20 different organisations in publishing, arts, digital media and more! Amazing work!
