Base Fest

Base Fest! Homeless NOT Hopeless.

A one day FESTIVAL showcasing the many of talents of Brighton & Hove’s homeless community in partnership with First Base and Brunswick Festival Group.

Friday 27th March 12-5pm at The Friends Meeting House

Brunswick Festival Group has joined forces with First Base to present a one day festival at The Friends Meeting House in Ship Street on Friday 27th March.

This free event will seek to raise awareness of the issues facing rough sleepers and vulnerably housed people in Brighton & Hove. It will also provide an opportunity to showcase to the wider public the wealth of skills, brilliant creativity and diverse talents that lie within the City’s homeless community. A community who might be homeless, but who are certainly not without hopes and aspirations for brighter futures.

Over the past two months, Brunswick Festival Group has been delivering a range of vocational training activities, social events and creative arts workshops, which will all feed in to the festival event:

*First Aid *Event Management * Volunteering * Arts & Crafts * Theatre workshops * Music * Social Media & IT *Graphic Design *Photography * Creative Writing * World Food Recipe Sharing * Djing *Gardening…and more.

This project was made possible thanks to a community grant of £15,000 from the European Social Fund.

Any local charities or not for profit groups wishing to have an information or fundraising stall at the event, please contact
