The Brighton Dome is an arts venue that contains the Concert Hall, the Corn Exchange and the Studio Theatre (formerly the Pavilion Theatre). It was built between 1803 – 1808 for the Prince of Wales. Originally it was a stable (Concert Hall) and riding house (Corn Exchange) for his horses.When some people said that the horses had a better place than the Prince he began to plan the the Royal Pavilion as a better place for his guests.
The first pipe organ in the Dome’s Concert Hall was built in 1870 by the famous London firm of Henry Willis & Sons to a specification of forty-four stops spread over four manuals and pedals.
The Dome staged the Eurovision Song Contest on 6 April 1974, when ABBA won for Sweden with “Waterloo”.
