A new acting school backed by Dakota Blue Richards, the star of The Golden Compass film, that will give children and teenagers the training to work professionally in stage and screen, has been set up in Brighton. 

South East Dance has won funding to continue to lead innovative dance projects in Brighton's Circus Street over the next two years, helping to improve the emotional and physical wellbeing of people in one of the country’s most deprived wards. 

This Big Ass comedian – if we are going by the name of her hit sketch comedy show – is certainly talented. A successful stand-up and with a novel to boot, Katy Brand has somehow found the time to appear in Walking on Sunshine, this summer's hit rom-com sing-along. 

Following the postponement of the planned last ever performance of Bryony Kimmings' Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model, new dates have been announced for 23 and 24 July at Brighton Dome. 

Billed as a tantalising mix of Absolute Beginners and, A Clockwork Orange, The Modernists is a play set in 1962, where Mod band, The Now, are on the cusp of widespread popularity.

Brighton based playwright Gail Louw is the winner of the 2014 NWS/ Brighton Fringe Best New Play award for her true life drama Duwayne, which played at The Old Market, Hove. 

The UK theatrical release of the micro-budget British feature Common People was set to be a special one-off screening at The Clapham Picturehouse, earlier this year. 

Having been commissioned by Glastonbury Festival in 2011, it seemed only good and proper that our city's very own maverick annual shindig, Brighton Festival, should welcome Flown; a promised 'world of the unexpected!'

Over 5,000 people have already visited Circus Street Market to see the William Forsythe installation Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No.2 - including the American choreographer himself, who experienced the piece ahead of his own Brighton Festival event.
