Brighton Festival

​Lianne Jarrett set up the Press and Marketing Department for Brighton Festival, the largest mixed arts festival in England, in 1985. 


The Festival - a programme of innovative dance, international theatre, literature, visual arts, classical and contemporary music, community and children's activities, with world premieres and exclusive appearances - remained a client until 2002. During this time, Lianne Jarrett Associates established and ran the press and media campaign for this entire event.
