The Space is a unique regular entertainment, arts and media event. Usually every quarter, we present a line-up of high calibre special guests, discussing their work and achievements. Held in intimate environments at various Brighton arts venues, each event has two interviewees with a chance for the audience to ask their own questions.

“I cannot recommend an appearance at The Space highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble, from the delightful dinner beforehand to my fellow guest and the wonderfully informal and fun interview that followed. A lovely evening and I'd be back like a shot."

WRITER & ACTOR MARK GATISS (Sherlock, The League of Gentlemen, Doctor Who)

Since October 2009, The Space has staged special film events at Brighton’s Duke of York’s cinema with screenings and special guests. These include:


"I had a fantastic time at The Space; it's the most enjoyable bit of public speaking that I have ever done! You really have something special going on there in Brighton. The audience were cool and well informed. It was a really interesting and creative evening!"

VISUAL EFFECTS SUPERVISOR PAUL FRANKLIN

(The Dark Knight trilogy, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Inception)

"That was a thoroughly enjoyable evening in a great location!  Many thanks for looking after me so well, for providing a knowledgeable and entertaining interviewer, and for finding me some new fans.  It's been said before but bears repeating – Brighton Rocks!"
