Brighton Urban Free Festival
Zap Tent
In 1985, as Gavin Henderson director of the Brighton Festival recalls, “the Zap helped us to produce the Industrial and Domestic Theatre Contractors in a work around and about and under the West Pier. They also collaborated in bringing a tented season to what was then the Dome car park (the site on which the new Jubilee Library now stands).

The Zap Tent was a red and blue four pole big marquee that could accommodate up to 1,200 people. It hosted a wide variety of entertainment and the Zap Awards for the best of the different art forms participating in the Brighton Festival.
