Welcome to the Brighthelm Centre

We are a community space with meeting and performance rooms for hire, and have been based in this city-centre location since 1987. We have a lovely multi-purpose auditorium suitable for theatre productions, concerts and conferences as well as many other rooms on five floors with various capacities. On the ground floor we have a light and airy cafe with freshly cooked food served every weekday.

What’s Happening

There is lots happening every day at Brighthelm. The centre provides office space for a number of charities and social enterprises delivering services and support to people in Brighton and Hove and beyond.  During the week, Brighthelm Pre-school runs a daily facility for two to five year olds and our café is open to the public providing coffee, cakes, meals and other refreshments.

Every day is different, with the centre typically hosting various different meetings and conferences, lunch time exercise classes and evening leisure pursuits.  At the weekend, weddings, theatre and parties are the norm and several churches use the venue on Sundays for a range of different styles of Christian worship.
