Distrikt is the first youth-led Brighton Fringe Venue, coming in May 2016! Viva la revolution!

by distriktbtn in Brighton

Distrikt is the first fully youth led Brighton Fringe Venue, coming in May 2016! We will be producing a broad, mixed program with a wide range of performances, ensuring we have something for everyone to enjoy.  Although we are young people we have a team of industrial professionals supporting us in the creation and operation of the venue.  

Our venue will be at 'The Spire' a beautiful former church in East Brighton that is being converted into a community arts space. We will be working with experienced event managers and promoters to ensure the success of the venue.

We will seat up to 110 people and will be suitable for large-scale performances with a flexible layout. It will also be one of the only venues to offer thrust and traverse layouts for performances, a simple set up enabling us to tailor for wider ranges of performances.

Our aim is to encourage more young people to run their own events and show the community how young people are the future of fringe. 

BUT we need YOUR HELP! 

We are all really excited for May, but we need some resources to help Distrikt succeed. We want to prove that, as young people, we can not only run the first youth-led Brighton Fringe venue, but we can also do it to an incredibly professional standard.

To acheive this, we need help raising funds for resources including technical equipment, marketing materials, the hire of the space, the full bar and box office, as well as lots more.
