Dr Blighty was a multi arts event produced by Nutkhut and presented at the Brighton Festival 2016.

It featured a highly ambitious and emotive projection mapping of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, designed and animated by NOVAK in collaboration with Nutkhut.


Inspired by the remarkable story of when Brighton’s Royal Pavilion Estate became a military hospital for wounded Indian soldiers during the First World War. Accompanying the projection was a specially commissioned soundtrack by Shri and Ed Carter
