  • Sun, 15 May 1.30pm - 3.15pm

Discover the heartwarming story behind one of the greatest ever shipwrecks: The Endurance! Shackleton is a new musical based on the true story of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew's incredible journey of survival and perseverance after their ship, the Endurance, got crushed in an ice pack before they were ever able to start their attempt to cross the South Polar continent via the pole. As The Golden Age of the British Empire drew to a close with the threat of World War I looming, 28 men set out on a bitter and brutal journey that pushed them to the limits of human endurance and the darkest parts of their soul. Shackleton inspired them to find strength in their defeat, laughter in their pain, and the courage to overcome adversity with optimism.

Brighton Fringe - Mistress, Maiden, Monster: A Modern Masque

Mistress, Maiden, Monster: A Modern Masque

  • Thu, 26 May 6pm - 6.45pm

  • Fri, 27 May 6pm - 6.45pm

In this performance, we present the stories of three different female characters, from plays by Shakespeare; Desdemona (Othello), Kate (Taming of the Shrew), & Viola (Twelfth Night). Through these women, we pose questions about what their stories tell us about how women were viewed in Shakespeare’s time, and what this means to us when we see them today. What do Shakespeare’s stories tell us about how women are viewed in today’s society? Is what they say uncomfortable? Resonant? Relevant? We hope to create a dialogue with our audience and challenge them to think about how they view women.

Brighton Fringe - The Wasteland

The Waste Land (TS Eliot)

  • Thu, 26 May 8pm - 9pm

  • Fri, 27 May 8pm - 9pm

Reportedly T S Eliot carried a pocket version of Dante around, and although he could not understand Italian explained that he simply listened to the music of the words. Audrey Lee's performance is her own response to the music of Eliot's words in The Waste Land. Written one hundred years ago this year, at a time when Eliot was experiencing personal depression, there is much in its portrayal of failure, aridity and fear that can be seen in our modern world. The musical sounds of Robert Lee's composition enhance the words wonderfully well, especially on the one uplifting passage "who is the third who walks always beside you?"

Try something new

St Augustine's Arts & Events Centre is now a home for the Arts, Wellbeing, Spiritual and Hospitality sectors. As well as having a spacious and creative space we have the atmospheric and stylish Wild Earth Cafe Bar set inside the building, offering a tasty menu of drinks and food to our visitors. This whole project aims to become the archetype of what a community and cultural centre should be.

We have internal solutions for most community and business gatherings and the gardens will also be used during the summer months to accommodate activities like cream teas, alfresco dining, cultural and spiritual activities, children's activities and corporate outdoor gatherings.

After weathering the COVID-19 storm we are now pleased to say that we are now open to the public! We have made the necessary changes to the building to be able to open safely to the public.

We can still host socially distanced events and regular events from the 1st October, so get in touch and have your next event at Brighton's most unique venue!

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.
