Community Events

A venue that everyone in the city can call home

We love Brighton & Hove and it’s exciting to be a part of such a vibrant, inclusive and diverse city. We know that, above all, it’s the creativity of our communities that puts this city on the map.

We’re proud to support and be associated with some inspiring community programmes including Miss Represented, Team Domenica, Adopt an Author and the Children’s Parade to name but a few. 

We are passionate about making the arts accessible to all and remain committed to a vision of Brighton Dome being a venue that everyone in the city can call home. 

If you’re an organiser with an idea for a community event, particularly those with creative and educational aims, then we would love to hear from you to see how we can help.

In contrast with the exotic tiling of the ornate entrance hallways, the Foyer bar is bright, light and modern. By day, high ceilings allow plenty of natural daylight whilst LED lighting sets the perfect mood for an evening event. Located adjacent to the Concert Hall, Corn Exchange and additional breakout spaces, the Foyer bar provides the perfect hub for conference registration, receptions, private dinners or exhibitions. The Foyer bar also has direct access to the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, used regularly alongside Brighton Dome for private evening events.
