The Sallis Benney theatre and University of Brighton gallery provide spaces for top-quality visual and performing arts in the centre of Brighton. Located at the Grand Parade Campus, the venues have seen a range of artistic and academic use, featuring world leading artists, performers, guest speakers and academics. The 272-seat theatre has held Brighton Festival performances, fashion shows, talks by internationally renowned designers and artists and sell-out addresses by visiting and faculty lecturers.
