Our Venues

The festival site of The Warren is home to six exciting performance spaces during Brighton Fringe, all varying in size, capacity and use.


The Hat

The centrepiece of The Warren site is The Hat, a 250-seat theatre tent in the shape of a bowler hat, perfect for mid to large scale shows.

Our family-friendly showcase Pick of the Fringe takes place every weekend of The Warren, including the incredibly popular Brighton Fringe Launch Night Special.


The Blockhouse is a large, flexible performance space that is great for theatre to raucous comedy and anything in between. The venue can seat 115 in thrust.

The Late Show, our own-programmed mixed bill of comedy, cabaret and everything in between takes place in The Blockhouse.
