Brighton Festival 2022

Brighton Festival returns for 2022 with an extensive international programme of more than 150 events taking place across Sussex from 7-29 May

Since 2009, Brighton Festival’s Guest Directors have reflected the city’s spirit of openness and enquiry, helping cement the Festival’s reputation as a crucible of ideas, illuminating and commenting on the world’s complexities.

For the first time this year, Brighton Festival welcomes two Guest Co-Directors, Syrian architect and author Marwa Al-Sabouni and Tristan Sharps, Artistic Director of Brighton-based theatre-makers dreamthinkspeak. Marwa and Tristan have chosen the theme of Rebuilding as the inspiration for this year’s programme, exploring it from two different yet complementary perspectives.
