Upstairs at the Three and Ten moves to the The Basement

Exciting times lie ahead for the biggest and best production company in Brighton (in my opinion) as they upscale to a bigger and better venue.

Providing a platform for new and emerging talent throughout the year they play a key role in May during Brighton Fringe where they were responsible for a third of the shows programmed last year.

Ranging from theatre, music and comedy to puppetry they provide an amazing supportive network. I'm a big fan, not only because I've seen so many great performances produced by them but also because I'm so impressed by what this not-for-profit organisation has achieved. In particular the time, effort and enthusiasm Producer James Turnbull and Artistic Director Nicola Haydn have put into their company while working full-time, I think deserves a lot of credit.

Their new venue the Basement is located at 24 Kensington Street, in the centre of Brighton and offers two unique spaces. Their new year programme features local and national theatre, as well as comedy and music. Their aim is to make live performance accessible and affordable, providing entertainment with a broad appeal and in the process creating a social activity for everyone can enjoy. Look out for Jacko Hooper who supported James Blunt at The Brighton Centre in November and the multi-instrumentalist super-talented Fiddes Smith. Combining beautiful melodies with heart-felt lyrics catch them at the Basement's intimate setting on 24 January 2015.

In the past Otherplace Productions have won many awards including Best Venue at the Brighton Fringe and Festival Awards three times.
