Bag Lady Xmas Poster Final websize

Bag Lady's Christmas Present

by Brenda Bishop, Sarah Davies & David Tutton

This Christmas, join us at The New Venture for a show full of delight and charm for all the family. As a curtain-warmer, and to give you that fuzzy festive feeling, we visit Christmas stories old and new, funny sketches and Christmas song.

Followed by Brighton’s very own, lovable Bag Lady who welcomes you in from the cold to share her infectious joy with her new one-woman Xmas show. Bag Lady will gladly share her world with you - a place of wonder, fun and games, laughter and joy.

A magical evening to be enjoyed with a warming glass of mulled wine from the bar and a mince pie.

Renewal at New Venture


The time has come for some important restoration and enhancement of our beautiful Grade 2 listed building and so we have launched a 5-Year programme of work called ‘Renewal at New Venture’.

This is an exciting initiative intended to combine essential repairs to the fabric of the building with enhancements to our facilities and equipment designed to improve the theatre experience and safeguard the New Venture Theatre for future generations.
