Unmissable stuff, beautifully crafted and delivered by two remarkable companies, the stuff that makes Brighton Festival great ★★★★★ Latest Brighton

We’ve had a fantastic run of Operation Black Antler at Brighton Festival. The show itself has received great praise from audiences and critics alike and we’ve also had some great post-show discussions around the themes of the work, particularly the implications of state surveillance.

The Stage described it as a ‘Thought-provoking and superbly performed immersive experience with a political charge’ and Michael Billington of The Guardian gave the show 4-stars, commenting ‘this kind of imaginative conspiracy shakes one up a bit, makes one look at the world differently and obliges one to engage in lively, post-event debate about the morality or police surveillance.’
