The new book from Queenspark publishers ‘Backstage Brighton – Theatre-going in Brighton and Hove’ has hit the shops!
In 1900 Brighton had more theatres than anywhere in the UK outside London. Backstage Brighton celebrates theatre and theatre-going in the city past and present. If you ever wondered what once stood on the site of the Brighton Centre or why the Sallis Benney is so-called, then you’ll be enthralled by the book’s fascinating journey through the history and heritage of Brighton & Hove’s many theatrical venues.
The book was put together by a variety of writers, volunteers, facilitators and participants. Strike a Light set up oral history interviews for some of the histories in this book and got behind the scenes for the real sauce and stories of theatre land!
The book is now available at Waterstones or online.
