Brighton Marina

Brighton Marina has become the largest Marina complex in the UK. The vibrant atmosphere of the Marina, being so close to the City of Brighton is proving to be an attractive location to work and live and is now host the BP Big Screens.

The Royal Opera | Carmen | 2 July at 7pm| pre-screening starts at 6.30pm

Bizet's greatest opera tells the story of the enigmatic and seductive Carmen and the dangerous passion she arouses in Don José. Soak up free culture on your doorstep: watch The Royal Opera’s fresh take on this much-loved opera, complete with flamenco dancers, bull fighters – and a gorilla – all in a free live screening from the Royal Opera House at the BP Big Screen at Brighton Marina.

What I need to know before I attend:

The marina is easily accessible by all forms of transport and is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. The marina is lined by cafés, bars and promenades, which offer plenty of places to sit, relax and enjoy the views. In addition, the events will offer a variety of food and drink concessions. Picnic hampers are welcome! All litter should be disposed of in bins provided or taken home. This is an outdoor event, so please dress appropriately for the anticipated weather conditions.
