Making the most of Brighton Pavilion estate
5:50pm Tuesday 13th November 2012 in News
An influential arts boss has welcomed plans to revamp a historic cultural hub.
Among the changes are the local authority working more closely with Brighton Dome and Festival which runs three theatres in the area.
Andrew Comben, the chief executive of Brighton Dome and Festival, said: “The Royal Pavilion Estate is the cornerstone of Brighton’s cultural quarter.
“By building on our existing strong partnership with Royal Pavilion and Museums we can make the most of opportunities and ensure the sustainability of our unique cultural assets.
“We are always aiming to make the experience of visiting our venues even better and more memorable.”
The issue will be discussed at the council’s economic development and culture committee on Thursday.
Council bosses believe it will mean it can bring in more money from national and charitable bodies while attracting new audiences.
The Old Court House, just off North Road, could also house archaeology and natural history collections.
