Corn Exchange Foyer

Welcome to our newly refurbished Corn Exchange.

Brighton Dome's Grade I listed Corn Exchange was built at the same time as the Concert Hall and was originally the Prince Regent's riding house. It is now a unique and versatile venue with a magnificent single span of arched ceiling and a sprung maple floor.

On arrival, artists and audiences are welcomed by the gilded statue of Ceres, the Roman Goddess of Agriculture – referring to the venue’s purpose as a corn market in the late 1800s. Originally created by James Woodford OBE RA in 1934-35, Ceres has now been restored to her former glory with careful restoration work and gold leaf finishing.
