James Orchestral Tour – Brighton Dome – Tues 25 April 2023

Church Street, Brighton BN1 1UE

About the Venue

Part of the Royal Pavilion Estate, Brighton Dome started out life as an opulent stables for the Prince Regent in 1803 and has served many purposes ever since, from a centre for Suffragists and Suffragettes to a sports venue, hosting roller skating, boxing and wrestling. It became the Concert Hall we recognise now in 1934/5 and its Art Deco fittings have seen concerts from Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd, T-Rex, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie, and hosted the Eurovision in 1974 where ABBA won with Waterloo.

There are 3 concert spaces within the venue, the main Concert Hall, the Corn Exchange and a small studio theatre. The main Concert Hall holds between 1400 and 1700 people seated, depending on the layout and is laid out in a semi circular design
