In its fifth year BOAT welcomed 70 different local national and international companies with over 140 performances and welcomed over 22,000 visitors through the gates.

  • BOAT is a 425 Capacity Open Air Theatre in Dyke Road Park, Hove.
  • BOAT is open annually from 1st May through to 30th September
  • BOAT has an artistic policy of open access and hosts a huge range of events including Theatre, Music, Comedy, Family, Circus and Special Events.
