The Dome Sessions

One of the perks of working for VisitBrighton is that we get invited to launch parties and private views. Last night Richard, Liliana and I went to the Brighton Dome for the launch of the Dome Sessions For those of you who are not familiar with it, the Dome consists of three theatres - The Concert Hall, Pavilion Theatre and the Corn Exchange. These verstaile spaces mean that they can host a variety of events including popular music, dance, classical music, ballet and comedy.

Over the course of the last twelve months, photographer Grant Scott has taken portraits of some of the artists who have performed there. The photos will be on display in the Founders Room (by the bar in the main Concert Hall) until December 30th and are free to view for anyone going to see an event there. Artists featured included The Feeling, The Go! Team, Richard Hawley, Lenny Henry as well as this portrait of Rufus Wainwright

So be sure to pop in and have a look the next time you attend an event at the Dome, and don't forget to let us know what you thought of the exhibiton and if you were tempted to buy anything!

I thought they only let Lenny Henry out of his padded cell once a year to do comic relief. But it's good he can be put to other uses.

I, on the other hand, think he should be replaced by Ainsley Harriot. I've laughed so hard at Ready Steady Cook more than once, and feel he would provide a younger, refreshed look to the whole affair.
