Gatwick sponsors Brighton charitable programs

brighton dome and festival programmes gatwick airport sponsorGatwick Airport is sponsoring partner Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival’s family, international and accessibility programs.

The Brighton Festival 2017 International and Family programs offer a wide range of artistic performances, spanning music, theater and dance. The event, running from May 6-28, is guest directed by recording artist, poet, playwright and novelist Kate Tempest.

Brighton Dome’s accessibility program ensures there is a range of assisted performances at the festival for revelers with access needs, including audio-described performances for blind and visually impaired people, sign language interpreted performances for deaf and partially hearing visitors, as well as relaxed and multi-sensory performances for those with leaning disabilities.

Alison Addy, Gatwick head of community engagement, said, “We are delighted to sponsor these programs, which bring so many families and young people together.

“Brighton Dome’s work to celebrate international artists is very well recognized and we always strive to support them and their engagement with the local community.

“The sponsorship is another example of Gatwick’s wider commitment to supporting the community by addressing the social and environmental issues that matter to local people.”

Brighton Dome is a registered charity and offers a year-round program of performing arts, in addition to the Brighton Festival every May. Gatwick is an accredited family airport and has sponsored the organization for three years, committing to helping it make the arts accessible to a wider audience in the Brighton community.

Andrew Comben, chief executive at Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, commented, “It is thanks to our sponsors that we are able to present the sheer number of quality performances, installations and exclusive talks that make up Brighton Festival.

“This year’s guest director Kate Tempest is passionate about connecting the wider community with the arts, and Gatwick’s support of the Festival’s international and family programs, as well as year-round accessibility at Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, is crucial in ensuring we can continue to make Brighton Festival and the city itself such a magical place to be in May and year-round.”
