About Us

Whether you're an old friend or a new face, come down and say hello! Otherplace is one of Brighton's biggest production companies, and this year we are staging a whopping 777 performances across four venues for Brighton Fringe 2017. In Jan 2015 we moved to our new venue The Basement from our previous long-established theatre Upstairs at Three and Ten in Steine Street, Kemp Town, winner of Best Comedy Venue in the South East. We now focus all our efforts on The Warren, our much-loved pop-up festival site on the grounds of St Peter's Church every May, and put on shows in a variety of performance spaces across town. Although we've changed venues, we've still got the same high-quality acts performing.

About Us

Whether you're an old friend or a new face, come down and say hello! Otherplace is one of Brighton's biggest production companies, and this year we are staging a whopping 777 performances across four venues for Brighton Fringe 2017.

The Warren See more.

In 2012 Otherplace created The Warren, a pop-up complex of three performance spaces for the Brighton Fringe, with a gorgeous garden and outdoor bar tucked away in Russell Place, just off West Street, Brighton. Over the years the complex has grown and in 2015 The Warren was transplanted to its new home, the green behind St Peter's Church on York Place, which for the duration of May is transformed into a festival-within-a festival. This year, walk among trees strung with festoon lights and you'll find a bustling Festival Bar and Rooftop Bar, food stalls, five performance spaces, a bustling Market Town and a dedicated Family Area. Voted Best Venue in the prestigious Brighton Fringe Awards on several occasions.
