The Regency Town House at 13 Brunswick Square, is a grade 1 listed terraced home in the heart of Brunswick Town, a Georgian estate in the City of Brighton & Hove on the Sussex coast.

Built in the 1820s, the Town House is today being developed by staff and volunteers as a heritage centre and museum. Its activities are funded through The Brunswick Town Charitable Trust, a registered charity set up to support the project in 1994.

Volunteering opportunities

The Town House volunteers have returned after Covid and lockdown and self-isolating and quarantine and closed borders and… everything else we have been through. 

There are NOW opportunities for you in organising, researching, cookery, sewing, painting and, most urgently, someone who can help me (Ed.) to manage our websites and move lots of content from this website to our new one: see here for details.

Exhibitions

As the 2021 season draws to a close we thank all the artists and makers, some of whom saw their exhibition postponed more than once during the pandemic - your perseverance is appreciated!

We acknowledge…

The 7 Dials Artists & Makers who closed the season with Out of the Blue; the printers who brought us This Has Travelled Through The Night To You; the photographers of the Iris Collective for In a Silent Way; the Difficult Darkroom Womxn (who weren't difficult at all) for Adapt and Adjust; Tiffany, Amy and Craig for Reconfiguring; the students of Brighton Fashion & Textile School for Textile Artwork; Joe Teasdale for her mighty one-woman show My Adopted Family; the University of Brighton's BA Painting graduates for their brilliantly organised and presented exhibition FUSE; and, finally, Hilary, Fleur, Sharon and Mark who were brave enough to kick the whole thing off way back in June with Below Stairs at No.10.
