Brighton Open Air Theatre

  • About
    Adrian Bunting was a playwright, theatre maker and construction manager. A guiding light in Brighton’s arts scene, Adrian was at his most triumphant as creator and MC of the legendary Zincbar cabaret.

    Adrian’s plans to write more plays were sadly curtailed when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April 2013. He died four weeks later, aged 47.

    During those final weeks Adrian drew up plans for what he hoped would become his legacy: The Brighton Open Air Theatre (B•O•A•T). It had always been his dream to build an open theatre in the city that he loved. Adrian initiated the designs, found the perfect site – the former bowling lawn at Dyke Road Park – and arranged for his life’s savings (£18,000) to be left to the project. Finally, on a bright spring day, Adrian asked five of his friends if they would continue his dream after he had gone.
