Help us breathe new life into our historic venue and build more dynamic spaces for all to enjoy.
Much more than a Concert Hall…
We are refurbishing our Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre to improve your experiences at our pioneering events. Along with reviving long-lost heritage features, we are also building a dedicated creative space for workshops and rehearsals, a delightful street-facing café and other public spaces in the venue where you can hang out, relax and enjoy the iconic architecture at the heart of our city.
We are creating new spaces for everyone to enjoy and engage with pioneering arts events from music, dance, theatre and comedy to heritage displays and education projects, or to simply socialise.
With this project we will be providing
These buildings have formed the backdrop for thousands of memorable moments for over 200 years.
Prince Regent built Brighton Dome as a grand riding house and stables. Later, Victorian gentry donned their roller-skates and rumbled and roared under the grand arches of our Corn Exchange. During WWI, over 4,000 soldiers were nursed back to health in a make-shift hospital sited across the Royal Pavilion Estate. And in WW2, allied soldiers danced their cares away every Saturday night with local Brightonians.
Brighton Dome has been an art installation, a thwarted suffragette protest, a boxing ring, a conference hall, held graduation ceremonies and of course responsible for hundreds of eclectic, pioneering and boundary pushing performances.
The importance of our buildings to Brighton is significant. Brighton Dome is the first building of the Regency culture in Brighton and the Corn Exchange roof is the widest span timber frame building in the country. As a venue the Corn Exchange is a one of a kind, there is no other space quite like it.
The history of these iconic buildings needs protecting for future generations and for the future of our city.
Brighton Dome is a symbol of Brighton & Hove’s vibrant spirit and its future.
Life for Brighton Dome started as Prince Regent’s riding house and stables, over the centuries we have transformed but always remained at the heart of our community.
Now, as the largest and most dynamic multi-arts venue in the south east, we have touched thousands of lives; you’ve graduated, danced, laughed, cried, fallen in love and married under our roof.
Your support will enable us to reach our fundraising target and complete our building project. We will protect and restore the buildings rich heritage and continue to provide the very best arts and culture in Brighton & Hove and to enrich and change lives through the work we do in our community.
We may have begun as a playground for a Prince but we’re reopening for everyone.
Now it’s your time take a leading role in helping us to build our future and support the arts in our city.
