Brighton & Hove Arts Council : Full-Length Drama Competition

Brighton & Hove Arts Council was founded in 1974 by a group of enthusiasts to support and promote the not-for-profit arts sector in Brighton, Hove and beyond who are actively practising the creative and interpretive arts.

Brighton & Hove Arts Council organises a variety of entertainments and social events, competitions and exhibitions.

In 1984 Brighton & Hove Arts Council revived the Full-Length Drama Competition
