Familiar Faces, Hidden Spaces

Brighton Dome Backstage Tour

We are sorry to announce the cancellation of our Backstage Tours across March and April. This is due to the latest Government advice that the public should avoid contact in social spaces, including theatres. All ticket buyers will be contacted.

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 Royal Pavilion tunnel, and discover some of the more surprising roles our iconic venue has played in history and how we use the spaces today.


Please note that during the tours there are 16 stairs going down to the back of house areas, 3 stairs leading down to the secret tunnel and 17 back upstairs. If you require use of the lift please telephone the Ticket Office on 01273 709709 well in advance of your tour date.
