The Grade I listed building, formerly the Prince Regent’s Riding house, is undergoing a number of improvements that will result in; new retractable and balcony seating, improved technical equipment and sub-floor storage, new cooling and heating systems and enhanced acoustic and thermal insulation. 

The transformation will also restore natural light and reveal previously-hidden heritage features such as the original timber and cast-iron trussed roof structure.

After the project is completed in late 2018, the Corn Exchange will have an increased seating capacity of 500.

Brighton Dome’s Studio Theatre will also undergo refurbishment. The Grade II listed building will receive new retractable and balcony seating, as well as contemporary bar facilities, improved access and foyer spaces and a café opening on to street level.

A brand new ‘Creation Space’ – a meeting space for smaller events and break-out sessions – will also be available for those booking the Studio Theatre.

Brighton Dome Concert Hall, with a maximum capacity of 1,700, will remain untouched and available for hire throughout the re-development project.
