The Warren on the Beach was an innovative and imaginatively designed response to the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling Otherplace to provide socially distanced entertainment following the first lockdown of 2020. It offers comedy, music and theatre in a Covid-secure, open-air setting, with one of the UK’s iconic views as the most stunning of backdrops.
Returning in 2021, this evolving space will offer a diverse programme of live performance. The perfect venue to spend a summer’s evening, enjoying a drink and watching a show with the sound of waves crashing against Brighton’s famous pebble beach.
