“Because we have been working on environmental issues for some time I was surprised at how much useful practical information was new to me which I can now apply within my organization.”

Sustainability Tour of the Brighton Dome
Part of the Utilise Plus events and grant funding programme.
2nd July 2019, 09:30 to 12:30, Brighton Dome, East Sussex.
Join us for a Sustainability Tour of the Brighton Dome in East Sussex. Established over 200 years ago, Brighton Dome produces and presents over 600 events each year, including music, dance, comedy, theatre and much more. They know better than anyone the need for sustainability when running events – they eliminated plastic straws in 2018 and are now working on finding a suitable alternative to plastic cups, while almost 60% of their waste is recycled. What’s more, they purchase green tariff electricity from renewable sources and continuously monitor their electricity, gas and water usage. Delegates will get to hear from Brighton Dome’s Zoe Curtis and see their sustainability in action on this behind-the-scenes tour of their Concert Hall.
