A selection of Brighton Festival archive artworks dating back 50 years, have been re-created as striking high-quality screen prints that will delight art lovers and retro graphic design geeks.
From the 1971 brochure cover, featuring a colourful illustration of the famous Royal Pavilion dome to Turner prize nominee David Shrigley's 2018 drawing.
Other well-known names include cartoonist Steve Bell's 1998 satirical city-scape and the late pop artist Martin Sharp's fireworks over Brighton pier from 1988.
The artworks have been hand-printed in limited editions by Brighton-based fine art studio, The Private Press
, with prices from £90
with the option for framing the print so it's ready to hang.
Following Brighton Dome's re-opening and Brighton Festival's return, their annual membership scheme is an affordable option to give fans of live events exclusive benefits, including invitations to member-only events, discounts on food and drink in the café-bar and priority booking for sell-out shows.
Priced at just £35 (or £60 for a joint membership), it's an easy way to give a cultural Christmas gift to a loved one that lasts all year round. Gift vouchers are also a fun way to help towards the cost of purchasing tickets to forthcoming events including comedy, music and talks.
During the coronavirus pandemic, BDBF lost 67% of its self-generated income due to a long period of closure.
The sale of Christmas gifts will provide a crucial source of revenue which will help the venue and the annual arts festival to programme events but also provides support to artists to develop and bring their work to the city and offer arts projects in the wider community.
