Events open to everyone

Talk: ‘How to get the most out of your practice’ by Luis Parés, Sunday 1st March at 2.45pm in the Hall.

We encourage people to listen to and watch the performances. However, in order to cover the costs of the Festival, we do make a charge for this. (Teachers, children and those in full-time education are free.)

The 2020 Festival will be run, as in recent years, at Brighton Girls GDST.

Tickets are available on the door and prices are:

Day ticket
1 person £4
Additional adult £3
Weekend ticket
1 person £6
Season ticket for all sessions £15
Free entry to anyone in full-time education

Free parking is available at the main school and at the Sixth-Form Centre on Temple Gardens. If you have to park on the street, please note that parking charges are much cheaper two blocks west on Nizells Avenue (alongside St Anne’s Well Park).

Please arrive in good time for your class (but note that the venue will not be open before 9.00 am each day).

Refreshments are on sale in the foyer (although please note that no food or drink other than bottles of water can be taken into the Hall or along to the Library).

Please note that those aged under 16 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult (who may remain in the foyer if preferred, but may not leave the building).
