Jane Austen at Home. The Royal Pavilion. 26 October

This one woman show, in the magnificent Music Room, consists entirely of Jane Austen’s words with extracts from her memoirs, letters, juvenilia, poetry and novels. Including much of her perceptive, often satirical, observation of the social life of English country families it also captures her warm nature and affection.

For devoted Janeites and newcomers to Austen this is a real treasure trove of a performance not to be missed!

George IV was born on this day. 12 August 1762. The Morning Chronicle - Tuesday 13 June 1815 reporting work being made at the Royal Pavilion.

Tuesday 13th June 1815

The alterations making at the Pavilion in Brighton are on a great scale, and at an enormous expense. A new gallery, 165 feet long, and 17 wide, is forming, for which the inside is almost entirely metamorphosed. There are between 4 and 500 workmen daily employed on it, so as to give the hope of its being finished by the Regent’s birthday.

Glyn Philpot. Brighton Museum. Continues to 25 March 2018

Royal Pavilion & Museums’ diverse collections include an exceptionally strong group of paintings and sculpture by English artist Glyn Philpot (1884-1937). This display explores the artist’s life, including his relationships with Henry Thomas and his patrons, his hope to reconcile the religious image with the contemporary and the modernising impact he had on portraiture.

This summer Brighton Museum launches Be Bold, a series of collaborative events and exhibitions funded by Arts Council England and programmed in partnership with Brighton & Hove’s LGBTQ communities.

The Museum of Transology is a bold, brave and profound collection of artefacts and photographic portraiture that began with donations from Brighton’s vibrant trans community. Now comprising around 150 objects, the crowd-sourced collection is the largest collection representing trans people in the UK – if not the world.
