United We Stream Brighton showcases the city's music, culture and free-thinking rainbow infused spirit to viewers at home, whilst raising money for the city’s night-time economy, cultural organisations and charities.
As the city, the nation and the world continues to battle against COVID-19, all our night-time venues have closed to help our NHS in the fight to stop the spread. But with unified support, Brighton is joining the fight back on behalf of all our restaurants, pubs, theatres, freelancers, artists and venues and will showcase our world class cultural talent with United We Stream.
We will be streaming live bands, DJ’s, singers and performers, to entertain, educate and enrich you in your home with added Brighton rainbow infused quirk. United We Stream Brighton kickstarted on Thursday 18 June and we continue to stream every weekend with a donations page, where you can watch for free. All we ask is that you buy a ‘virtual ticket’ for whatever price you want, to enjoy the channel.
Why are we crowdfunding?
United We Stream will broadcast a diverse blend of entertainment and creative content on one free online platform. Streaming a mixture of live and pre-recorded DJ-sets, bands and performances, United We Stream will have something for everyone to enjoy while we all spend more time indoors to help the fight against COVID-19.
Pay what you feel and buy a ‘virtual ticket’ and watch weekly live streams while you’re at home, with all the money raised going to support bars, clubs, pubs, venues, restaurants, performers, freelancers and cultural organisations across Brighton as well as to support the vital work undertaken by local charities AudioActive and Grassroots and the fight against homelessness in the city.
