Corn Exchange

Imagine your event in a spectacular and versatile Grade I listed venue

With a high arched ceiling and 763sqm of available space, the Corn Exchange is one of the largest event venues in Brighton, allowing you to be as creative as you like. The beautiful feature windows provide plenty of natural light from the Royal Pavilion Garden, and the venue can be transformed for an evening event with special effect lighting and draping. Top AV facilities, an extensive lighting system and optional raked seating are all available, plus a dedicated, on-site technical support team. 

The Corn Exchange has the capacity to seat up to 500 for gala dinners, and has direct links to the Concert Hall, Café-bar and Studio Theatre. It is regularly used alongside these other venues for large-scale events.
