Beyond the Level is celebrating 25 years in 2019! One of the oldest Open House trails in the festival it has successfully evolved into a diverse and eclectic community numbering 12 houses, studios, a pottery and a café.

Beyond the Level showcases the work of practising artists, designers and makers living and working in or around the vibrant, rejuvenated London Road area of Brighton. Situated north and west of the level recreation space, it extends to meet the Fiveways trail, moves up into the Roundhill conservation area, and drops down to a working pottery situated near Lewes Road Sainsburys. The trail offers visitors quality original arts and crafts, in informal and homely settings, at affordable prices

Please note that while many houses and studios now have card payment facilities, some only accept cash or cheques. Where most venues are the artists' own homes, we may be unable to offer specialist access for disabled visitors, but will endeavour to offer appropriate assistance where required. Visitors are welcome to call houses and studios in advance to discuss specific requirements.
