Creative industry leaders from all over the world will gather in Brighton and Hove next month.

The city has been chosen to host the International Creative Clusters Conference for the second year running.

Policy advisers, professionals and academics will discuss the growth of the creative sector and its impact on the economy.

Music, entertainment and media industries account for roughly 20 per cent of Brighton and Hove's economy.

The conference will feature events focusing on the city and the South-East. Creative Clusters will be held at the Old Ship Hotel in Kings Road from April 28 to May 1.
