In spite of the challenges and the uncertainty The Arch has faced over the past 12 months, the team have worked hard to put together a 4 week program of open-air events to celebrate the venue’s return that the city can be proud of.
Damien Fell, The Arch x LiFE programme director said: “We have used the time while we have been closed to plan our return with a whole new outlook and attitude toward opening, through an extensive refurbishment, a tidy looking rebrand, new website and new resident DJs. We embarked on this project to mark the occasion, with a series of events for Brighton and surrounding areas like no other.”
