Brighton Festival 2021 in pictures - see what's coming
Care will be the theme of this year’s Brighton Festival as we all attempt to emerge from the pandemic.
Acclaimed British and Ethiopian poet, playwright and broadcaster Lemn Sissay launched the 2021 programme this week as the festival guest director – a role he was to have fulfilled last year before the 2020 festival was cancelled. Lemn’s 2021 programme represents a welcome return for the arts under a theme which will resonate with everyone. There will be more than 90 events outdoors and online from May 1 and then safely back on stage from May 17 to 31. 30 events will offer free tickets. https://brightonfestival.org/
