This November sees the first of many exciting events involving both the Marlborough Theatre and the pub. For manager Hannah, this was top of her list of things to do when she took over the running of the pub earlier in the year - to create events that involve the venue as a whole rather than two separate entities.
The Marlborough has a new body at the top in the form of Hannah Waddington. As Hannah has come straight from the North Laine where she has been assistant manager since the this grand pub opened in the heart of Brighton's North Laine area, she has a wealth of experience and exciting ideas to bring to the well loved Marly.
After the rejection on their first Arts Council funding application, The Nightingale Theatre last month received the news that their second application was successful, securing their funding for the next two years . This is very good news to artists, audiences and the arts in general. Without this funding it would have been impossible for The Nightingale to continue its inspirational work developing artists and bringing their audiences exciting new works on an unusually small and intimate scale.
For the third year running, Shakedown has teamed up with Drinkinbrighton.co.uk to give one band and one DJ the opportunity to play on the main stage of Brighton's biggest festival.
