Making It Happen in Brighton & Hove
The city is bidding for £1.5m from a £15m government sponsored pot for urban cultural activities under the auspices of the Millennium Commission and the Arts Council.
Activities include a community football competition backed by The Albion, a festival with music from Glyndebourne relayed to Preston Park and a musical event on Madeira Drive recalling the days of mods and rockers. Buildings will be illuminated via sponsorship funding and a new festival will celebrate the winter solstice.
The bid is the creation of the newly established City Arts Commission and, if it is successful, will be in time for the Theatre Royal’s bicentenary.
