Backstage Tour 

Did you know that our Concert Hall used to be the stables for the Prince Regent's horses? Or that Brighton Dome hosted ABBA's victory in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo?

This is your chance to take a peek behind the curtain, follow in the footsteps of legends such as Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Beyoncé and David Bowie, catch a rare glimpse of the entrance to the infamous tunnel to the Royal Pavilion, and discover some of the more surprising roles our iconic venue has played in history and how we use the spaces today. So don’t keep waiting in the wings. Make your way to the stage, the show’s about to start…

Group tours by special arrangement

Both above tours can be specially arranged at a time convenient for your group. Please note that as this is a working venue each tour differs from visit to visit. As such, you’ll never know what to expect: from dancers warming up to technicians setting the stage to rooms ghostly and empty. Minimum attendance: 12 people.
