Now in our third year of sponsoring Brighton Digital Festival, EDF Energy is proud to support a wide-ranging programme of illuminating digital events throughout the city

The festival both celebrates Brighton’s creativity, its innovative digital economy and top-level arts scene and provides space for meaningful critique about the role of digital technology in reshaping life and culture. As the fastest growing digital festival in the UK, with an audience of more than 60,000 in 2016 for 190+ events and a far-reaching reputation, BDF is a vehicle for social change. It brings together diverse sections of Brighton’s population in new settings, as creators, as audiences and as participants, to help shape the future of the region.


How can you get involved?

Following great feedback from last year’s attendees, we will be running digitally focused internal lunch and learn sessions at our Hove office starting from the 19th September 2017. This is an opportunity to learn what EDF Energy is doing in the digital space.

All you need to do is choose the session you want to go to and fill out our simple form. We will then get in contact with you and confirm with you your place. Sign up early to avoid disappointment.
