Build Brighton Dome

The Brighton Dome was built in 1803 and designed by William Porden as stables & riding house for the Prince Regent. The design helped to cement Brighton’s reputation as a unique centre of decadence and experimentation.

George’s niece Queen Victoria sold the Royal Pavilion Estate in it's entirety to the council. Since then Brighton Dome has had many guises; during WWI it even became a makeshift hospital for Indian soldiers, as illustrated in our very successful multimedia show at Brighton Festival 2016, Dr Blighty.

Brighton Dome has been an art instillation, a thwarted suffragette protest, a boxing ring, a conference hall, held graduation ceremonies and of course responsible for hundreds of eclectic performances.
