Brighton festival programme announced

By Sarah Jackson
Brighton Festival’s 2013 programme was announced yesterday with Guest Director Michael Rosen, the writer, broadcaster and former Children’s Laureate.
This will be the 47th annual arts festival held in the city, which takes place for three weeks each May. Over 150,000 attendees will be attracted to Brighton and will generate £20 million to the local economy.
“It’s a huge privilege for me to be the Guest Director,” said Michael Rosen. “I believe in the chemistry of it, the way it will get the whole city talking and wondering.”
Andrew Comben, the Chief Executive of Brighton Dome and Festival, said that he believed Rosen’s energy and curiosity was a perfect match for the festival.
He said, “Michael Rosen has entertained, educated and moved audiences of all ages and over several generations”.
Including visual arts, music, theatre, outdoor performances, books and debates and family-friendly events throughout the city, Brighton Festival runs between the 4th and 26th May. More information is here.
