Brighton Dome has partnered with Fane Online on a curated series of livestreamed events featuring celebrated authors, actors and podcasters direct to audiences in the comfort of their own home.
The livestream events will take place from August to November 2020, with tickets going on sale from Brighton Dome’s website this Friday 17 July at 10am.
Internationally renowned and emerging names from the worlds of literature, acting, television, food, gardening and sport will present the live discussions and readings to coincide with the release of their latest books. Ticket packages include an option to purchase the speaker’s book at a discounted price and selected authors will be offering signed copies. All events will be filmed to the highest quality, delivering an at-home cinema-style experience that goes beyond the standard livestream.
Bestselling American author and LGBTQ+ activist, Armistead Maupin appears in a special one-off event discussing his career with award-winning actor Sir Ian McKellen. Described by critics as ‘utterly mesmerising’, Brit Bennet’s The Vanishing Half has set itself as a standard bearer within modern discussions of race, community and identity. Creator of the award-winning podcast, How To Fail, Elizabeth Day will bring her first ever Failosophy live event to the small screen in what promises to be a powerful and deeply empowering evening.
Fane is one of the UK’s fastest growing production companies, working with inspiring voices from across the cultural spectrum. Fane Online is launched in partnership with eight regional theatres, theatre organisations and four independent bookshops across the UK, helping to support the theatre and literary sector during the coronavirus crisis.
