The Dome

The City Arts Dome is a stunning temporary outdoor venue.

Looking for something more striking and beautiful than your average marquee? The City Arts Dome is a framework of arching wooden beams supporting a natural canvas canopy. It adds distinctive character to any event.

The venue is perfect for outdoor events and festivals. It’s great for parks, school grounds, civic squares and other community spaces. It can host a range of different activities from music and spoken word, to dance, theatre and after-dark projections.

Site Suitability

Like a marquee, the Dome can be built on any flat surface – both hard surfaces and grass. On hard standing surfaces, we provide ballast tanks with City Arts branding. On grass, we stake it down. For safe construction the site needs to be a bit bigger than the dome itself, 13 x 13 metres is ideal.

Additional staffing and equipment

For an additional cost, we can provide:

  • On-site production manager/sound engineer
  • PA and sound equipment
  • A small stage
  • Lighting
  • Tables
  • Chairs

It costs £1700 to hire the Dome for up to two days. We charge a further £100 per day for longer bookings.


If your event starts before 10am we will need access to the site to set up the day before.

You must provide fencing and overnight security for the dome. we can organise this for an additional cost.

If your event is a long way from Nottingham or would require the crew to stay overnight, this will incur additional costs.
