The city of Brighton and Hove really does have everything: sun, sea, brilliant clubs, great places to eat, fabulous shops, a truly cosmopolitan vibe and an extraordinary atmosphere of tolerance and freedom. And, since students form ten per cent of the city’s population, you can be confident that you’ll find plenty to satisfy your needs. Self-consciously creative, Brighton has a truly diverse cultural scene with a wealth of theatres, cinemas and galleries. From top theatre performances to the variety of experimental productions staged throughout the city, you’ll find something to entertain you. The Gardner Arts Centre on the University of Sussex campus is a well-known venue for dance and contemporary theatre and, back in Brighton, there are plenty of opportunities to catch comedy, cabaret and open-mike nights. Cinema-goers will find plenty to keep them happy. Brighton hosts two multiplex cinemas offering 17 screens for mainstream movies. If art-house cinema is more your thing, head straight to the Duke of York’s, a Brighton treasure and the oldest purpose-built cinema in Britain. The Gardner Arts Centre also shows avant-garde and classic movies. And, in true Brighton style, the beach occasionally plays host to big-screen cult films on summer evenings.
