Pitch Up Brighton

Tuesday 20 November 2018, 2pm – 5pm
Brighton Dome, Brighton

We’re pleased to announce that the next Pitch Up event – a welcoming gathering of theatre makers, producers and venue programmers – will be hosted by Brighton Dome on Tuesday 20 November 2018, 2pm – 5pm.
The deadline for applying to pitch has now closed, but we welcome anyone to register to attend.


What is Pitch Up?

Pitch Up is a half-day event hosted by Farnham Maltings as part of the house initiative. It’s made up of 5-minute artist pitches and 1-minute venue pitches aimed at sharing new ideas and encouraging the connections to make them happen. Pitches come from theatre makers, producers and venues in a spirit of openness and collaboration, ensuring it’s a valuable event whether you’re pitching or not.

So if you’re an artist, producer or venue involved in making theatre, and you’re looking for partners for a new project, Pitch Up is for you!

Everyone wishing to attend Pitch Up must sign up to the event via Eventbrite. We’d be delighted to have you there – pitching or not!

Please note that these events have a limited capacity and we ask for a maximum of two people per company/organisation to attend. If tickets are unavailable then please sign up to the waiting list and if a ticket becomes available then you will be sent an email.

How to apply to pitch

Anyone wishing to have a pitching slot at the event was required to apply by 12 noon, Friday 19 October 2018. This deadline has now passed.

If you are not successful in securing a pitching slot, or late in finding this event, we would still highly recommend attendance for networking and relationship-building purposes.
