Housed in a Victorian building complex originally intended for use as a community centre and swimming baths, and having survived everything from world wars and infernos to hardcore punk shows, The Dome has steadily earned a reputation as one of the most vibrant and diverse music venues in London.
Whether it’s exciting new bands on the ascendancy trying to make a name, or already-established acts wanting to give their fans a chance to see them in an intimate setting that doesn’t compromise on the quality of the show, The Dome has become the go-to choice for so many. In recent years, the stage has been graced by everyone from chart-toppers like Florence & The Machine, Khalid and The 1975, to pop punk heroes The Wonder Years, grime pioneer Giggs, rising indie-rock star Mitski, UK alt-rock champion Jamie Lenman, and even black metal icons Gorgoroth. Oh, and sometimes the floor is occupied by a ropes and canvas ring that hosts to regular boxing events, as well as monthly shows from the UK’s fastest-growing pro wrestling promotion, Progress Wrestling.
And through all of that, The Dome has remained an independently owned venue, retaining its unique character and charm while simultaneously developing into a state-of-the-art home for contemporary music.
Today the venue is in better shape than ever, having undergone a huge building refurbishment and equipment upgrade over the summer of 2017, and the future looks bright – not least because of the new lighting rig installed during those works.
We look forward to seeing just how far we can take this venue, and we hope that you can be a part of it.
