The Spire – Kemptown’s first secret Festival programme

Throughout May, The Spire will play host to Kemptown’s first secret Festival programme where you can discover experimental art, unusual performances and out of the ordinary music – each visit will be a unique experience and it’s all totally free of charge. We’ve built a brand new pop-up bar, stocked with the best local suppliers – there will be a range of drinks and snacks on offer to suit all tastes and wallets!

The Festival bar will open its doors on Friday 4 May at 6pm and then open every Friday, Saturday and bank holiday Sunday throughout the Festival month. Performances will happen throughout the evening.


Check out our Facebook & Twitter feeds for special programme announcements but here are two of our favourites to get things started.

Kicking things off, performance innovators DOTDASH will be joining us throughout the opening weekend presenting Passing Phase.

Bar open from 6pm. Performance at 9pm Friday 4, Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 May.

24 lights. 24 loops. 24 minutes. A dazzling ode to chaos, performed in circles. DOTDASH explore patterns, order and disorder, to ask: is hope a Passing Phase? DOTDASH is the collaboration between Eoin Furbank and Jessica Jordan-Wrench. Together they make noisy theatre, live and installation art.

On Friday 11 May RAW will take over the Spire bar.

RAW is a low-key evening of bite-sized performance and experimentation, run by independent producers with no agenda and no pressure! A chance to get together with friends, enjoy a drink and share an experience. 
RAW was conceived by Abby Butcher, Ruth Dudman & Faith Dodkins and has been imagined as a space for the creative community of Brighton & Hove to come together in a social setting – part theatre, part social-club, part extension of your living room.
