Brighton Fringe event venue
The Old Police Cells offer an incredibly unique venue for productions and exhibitions.
The Old Police Cells Museum opened in 2004 to showcase the lockups in which criminals were detained upon their arrest. Built in 1830 as part of the town hall, the cells were declared not fit for purpose in 1929 and eventually closed in 1967 when Brighton and Sussex police forces merged together. Having been used as storage by the council, it took countless time and sixteen skips to clear the area and transform it into the museum that exists today. There is an eerie sense about the building, with many claiming that they have had paranormal experiences in the cells and it has recently become well known with paranormal experts across the country.
Having hosted the Barefoot Players’ production of ‘These Precious Hidden Things’ last year, the Old Police Cells offer an incredibly unique venue for productions and exhibitions. The venue can seat 25 people but is capable of holding more of those who are happy to stand. With a number of different areas available, this adaptable venue has a delightfully creepy atmosphere which you certainly won’t find anywhere else.
