The Bournemouth International Centre
The Bournemouth International Centre is in central Bournemouth, close to Bournemouth Gardens. It opened its doors in 1984 and is one of the largest venues, known for hosting major British Party Political conferences, exhibitions, and entertainment events such as concerts, plays, and theatre. The Windsor Hall can host shows with a capacity of nearly 4,100 people, one of the UK’s largest indoor arenas. In 1990 the Purbeck Hall was created for £6m, and in 2022 the building underwent a £1.8m refurbishment to grow business levels in the conferencing market and events industry. Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole Council (BCP), and the social enterprise BH Live partnership manage the Bournemouth International Centre.
The famous Strictly Come Dancing will be touring at the Bournemouth International Centre in 2023 with a fantastic lineup of 10 of the world’s best professional dancers. The popular BBC show will showcase world-class dance, flamboyant costumes, and stunning sets. Tickets can be booked via the BH Live website.
