There are more than a dozen performances lined up for the final few days of (Brighton and) Hove Grown – a feast of local talent.

The performing arts festival – open to all disciplines – primarily focuses on theatre, comedy, cabaret, spoken word and workshops.

The shows tomorrow (Saturday 31 March) include Maria, by Copywriting Brighton. Maria is an autobiographical, insider’s look at mental illness.

The performance, at the Maydays Studio, in Regency Square, Brighton, starts at 5pm and has a running time of about 20 minutes.
