The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground is bringing Brighton Fringe Festival to Hove with an extravaganza that also incorporates our annual Ale and Cider Festival, which this year features ales from 17 breweries, including Dark Star, Arundel and Kissing Gate.
As one of the few sporting venues, the County Ground offers a unique arena for Brighton Fringe acts to showcase their talent. The Festival highlights the unique cultural heritage of Brighton and Hove, of which the County Ground is very important part.
If you want interesting, immersive theatre experiences, the County Ground is the place to be during Brighton Fringe, and one of few official Fringe venues in Hove.
First up is The Wedding Reception, a new immersive comedy, with a three-course meal included, from the producers of ‘Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience’. The setup sees Kate and Will returning to face the music, having eloped to avoid massive family arguments. You’re one of the guests at the wedding reception as their story unfurls around you.
