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. 

Important Information:

Brighton Dome Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre are undergoing a major refurbishment. The transformation of the Corn Exchange will restore and reveal original heritage features of the former Prince Regent's Riding House as well as provide increased capacity seating and a magnificent new viewing gallery. Major improvements to the Studio Theatre will include balcony seating, a new artists' creation space, new bar facilities and a café opening onto New Road.

The re-development works have now started through until Autumn 2018 during which time the Studio Theatre and Corn Exchange will be closed. The Concert Hall, Café-bar and Founders Room will remain open and in use throughout the project period.
