Proceeds from the sale of prints will go towards the Build Brighton Dome community appeal. The Grade One-listed Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, formerly the Prince Regent’s Riding House, is being restored to reveal previously hidden heritage features as well as provide increased capacity seating, a magnificent new viewing gallery and a creative space for artists to rehearse and develop work. Major improvements to the Studio Theatre - once a supper room - will include balcony seating, new bar facilities and a street level café opening out onto New Road.

David Shrigley said of the project: “As a Brighton resident, it was an honour to be the Guest Director at this year’s Brighton Festival and I had the opportunity to find out more about the exciting redevelopment of the Brighton Dome venues. I think it’s crucial that Brighton Dome is able to provide spaces to help support and nourish artists and their work.”
