The Spire


Offering a choice of events in the Fringe, the Spire is an exciting  arts venue to the East of Brighton City Centre, easily reachable by bus.

Highlights at the Spire

The Museum of Ordinary People

“A temporary museum of new exhibitions celebrating the ripples that ordinary people leave behind, created through a series of workshops held for members of the public where they learned to creatively archive and curate their own collections; including an archive of possessions of a Brighton woman who lived during the 70’s, to the belongings of an artistic mother who died too young. “

Circus Up Close – Väkevä / Lyydia (Double Bill)

“… experience the power of the strongman and the beauty of the aerial artist in this world premiere from Finland. Audiences are invited to enter a little dome tent to get a very special glimpse into the worlds of these circus disciplines. Meet Sasu the Strongman who performs gut wrenching stunts from circus past and Lyydia the aerialist who climbs and swings gracefully all over the tent. As circus celebrates its 250-year anniversary in the UK, be sure not to miss this stunning re-invention of circus tradition from Finland. Both shows are 30 minutes with an interval in between.  This production is part of Brighton Fringe’s Finnish Season 2018.”

Not Somewhere Else

“Monki’s debut performance colours outside the lines of the conventional circus genre. In just an hour, he manages to conjure up a uniquely personal universe in which he combines double pole acrobatics with spoken word, live music, video and a touch of madness. Monki is a character all on his own. He shares funny, sometimes moving, moments of his frustrations and fears about the way in which we live together. ‘Not Somewhere Else’ is an intimate and raw solo show that offers a look in to Monki’s chaotic and intriguing world. This production is part of Brighton Fringe’s Dutch & Flemish Season 2018.”

We’ll be adding more previews and recommendations in the run up to, and during the Fringe.
