The southern county of East Sussex may be best known for its sprawling, picturesque Downs, historic market towns and lively seaside resorts, but underneath this charming and tranquil exterior lies a thriving hub for business. Less than an hour's train journey from London, Brighton is a popular place for industry events and conferences. Surrounded by some of the most exquisite hotels in East Sussex and generously equipped with facilities, there are few more impressive venues than Brighton Dome.
An Historic and Unique Venue
Brighton Dome is a part of the famous Pavilion Estate. Along with the Royal Pavilion and its pretty gardens, the Dome features an enchanting medley of foreign architectural styles and exudes an unmistakably 'Brighton' ambience.
Brighton Dome comprises three venues - the Concert Hall, Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre. Originally built to serve as the Prince Regent's stables and riding school, the opulent spaces now operate as a public centre for arts and business, hosting regular shows and conferences. To this day, the buildings of the Dome are linked by an underground tunnel to the Royal Pavilion, on the other side of the gardens.
The Concert Hall is undoubtedly the biggest draw of the Dome. The elegantly styled auditorium offers seating for up to 1,700 delegates, making for a truly unique conference experience. With adjacent catering space, the Concert Hall comprises a complete events venue. The neighbouring Corn Exchange boats some 763 square metres of floor space, making it ideal for exhibitions and fairs. Weddings are also catered for at Brighton Dome.
