Emporium, Brighton

Built in 1894 and designed by Architect James Weir, this Methodist chapel opened on February 21st 1895. The original façade was rather Gothic and church-like.

In 1910 the building was extended with the addition of a new façade built roughly 4 metres in front of the original, which was left in situ and merely ‘boxed in’.

Then, later still, in 1938 the façade was remodelled in cement to the version we see today.

The church closed in 2006 when it was sold to the current owners. Except for a brief take-over by squatters in 2008 it has remained empty since then, waiting for a new purpose.

Our theatre – the atmosphere of our magnificent warehouse theatre space helps the drama come alive.

Our café– open all day every day, serving a range of healthy meals, snacks and indulgent treats. All within the grandeur of a wonderful old church!

Our exhibitions – a chance to peek behind the scenes at incredible props, stunning theatre costumes and set pieces from famous movies.

Our bar – the place to relax, socialise and network. Open every evening, whether we have a show playing or not.

Add to this an exciting, year-round, programme of classes and workshops run by theatre and movie experts, for professionals and enthusiasts of all ages and you have Emporium. The place for lovers of film and theatre to relax, network and get creative.
