Be part of 100 years of history

Commemorate the shared history of Brighton Dome and the Royal Pavilion by donating just £3.

Between 1 December 1914 and 15 February 1916 over 4,000 wounded Indian soldiers who fought with the allies during World War One were nursed back to health at the make-shift hospitals set up inside the buildings of the Royal Pavilion estate. The India Gate, completed in 1921 and visible on the south side of the Pavilion Gardens, was a gift from the people of India, erected to commemorate their fallen soldiers

To mark the 100 year anniversary, both organisations would like to programme and host a series of events in memory of those who convalesced inside the buidlings.

By donating just £3, you can help us commemorate this shared history. Every donation will be matched pound for pound by Arts Council England’s Catalyst grants.

Donation boxes can be found in Brighton Dome Café-bar and Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
