S Paul’s as a Concert Venue
If you are looking for an excellent medium-sized venue for concerts in the centre og Brighton then S Paul’s is an ideal choice. Seating up to 200 people, the main body of the church is set back the length of the chancel from any passing noise. In addition, the long cloister protects the entrance from street sounds. There is the added advantage of the church being warm in winter.
For smaller concerts and lectures, the elegant Fishermen’s Vestry has good acoustics and sits about 40 people comfortably.
The spacious Narthex is sometimes used for audiences of about 60.

The church is now a regular venue for concerts during the Brighton Early Music Festival (BREMF) each autumn.
