FOUR of the remaining Brighton Festival shows will be available to watch for free.

Bang Said the Gun at The Spire in Eastern Road, which is on today, Boy’s Don’t, also at The Spire, on Sunday, The Big Song, at Brighton Dome Concert Hall on Monday, and Lyrix Organix, at The Spire on Tuesday, will all be live streamed on the festival website.

Organisers live steam a number of events each year giving access to some of the most popular shows wherever you are in the world.

Students from Brighton Metropolitan College, formerly City College Brighton and Hove, help with the filming and editing of the shows.

Tonight will see poetry event Bang Said the Gun live streamed from 8pm.

Voted the best poetry night in the UK by The Times, Bang Said the Gun is said to be for people who don’t like poetry.

Promoters have described it as “loud, raucous, political, trivial, serious and very funny”.

Festival guest director Kate Tempest is also a big fan and described it as being “like mud wrestling with words”.

On Sunday, theatre piece Boy’s Don’t will be shown. It explores how young men express their feelings and the struggles they often encounter.

The shows promoter said: “Through funny, familiar and sometimes heartbreaking stories drawn from the real-life experiences of its cast of poets and spoken word performers, Boys Don’t delivers insights into male experiences of growing up, and offers the possibility of more open communication for us all.”

Monday’s live stream will be world premiere musical piece The Big Song.

It has been described as a “glorious celebration of singing that sweeps from science to spirituality, prehistory to protest, and reminds us of the central role of song in our identity and civilisation.”

The final live stream event of the festival will be Lyrix Organix at 7.30pm on Tuesday.

The spoken word event features many of the genre’s up-and-coming stars, including Toby Thompson, Solomon OB, Laurie Ogden and the London String Collective.

Kojey Radical, a much talked about 24 year-old poet and musician will co-headline the event.

The night also features a special guest talk by internationally acclaimed poet Deanna Rodger.
