About us

The Centre

St Augustine’s is fast becoming the archetype of what cultural and business centre should be.

It’s a Bleasure Hub with many fantastic and versatile spaces of various sizes for work and COVID-secure gatherings so it’s the perfect marriage between business and leisure.

The vibes within and around St Augustine’s is very current, conscious, creative and in tune with cultural and business needs.

We have a range of eclectic office suites and studios that are available for short or long term lease and the team at St Augustine’s have now mastered solutions for COVID-secure events and gatherings.

There is a wonderful front garden and side lavender garden for relaxing or having some good food with friend and we also own and manage St Augustine’s Apartments a high-end development next door to tick the leisure and live-work boxes.

This project is blessed with a community-based art gallery and the best vegan café in the city serving barista coffee, wholesome and tasty food.

Errol & Joanna Barrett

Errol and Joanna Barrett, the owners and directors are the visionaries that made the vision for St Augustine's Arts & Events Centre a reality, so they are very committed to the community cause.Joanna's father, James Osbourne, was a famous Brighton sculptor who had commissions from the Queen, Lady Diana and foreign dignitaries to name just a few. Some of his works populate parts of the city such as Brighton Square, Marine Parade, Preston Park and even the grounds of Buckingham Palace and St James Park London.

Errol Barrett has over 34 years in business across marketing, property development and investments, publishing, inventions but bringing communities and small start-up businesses together is now his main calling.

We also have a range of voluntary staff who are an invaluable part of the overall day-to-day operation.

SMIKLE DANCE PROJECT

Having an exhibition at St Augustine's was a great experience. The staff are eager to help and you feel very supported while there. It is a great space to exhibit in, with a lot of people calling in to use the other facilities. The atmosphere of the place is very special, it feels very inclusive and has great energy. I highly recommend the exhibition space and the Cafe is an added bonus. Thank you all for making me feel so welcome and making the exhibition a wonderful experience.

The staff at St Augustine's dealt all of my needs and provided an invaluable support service to my team of dancers and actors. Amazing place for contemporary and traditional dance pieces. We performed a sell out interactive theatrical production and it was very exciting.
