One of the most inspiring spots in Brighton is also easily missed. This open air theatre has been built into a former bowling green, just beyond the rose maze at Dyke Road Park. There’s a secret feel to sitting in its grassy amphitheatre, with the sea in the distance and the performers often close enough to touch. Opened in 2015, BOAT hosts a huge programme of theatre, music and comedy from May to September, from family matinees to Shakespeare under the stars. Funded entirely by donations, it was dreamt up and designed by the late Brighton theatre maker Adrian Bunting, who died shortly after the site was secured. Pick a show, take a picnic and raise a glass: to having dreams, and following them.
