English Partnerships plans to hire the Dome as a venue for one-off events in an attempt to raise money from the empty building, which is costing more than £400,000 a month to maintain. The decommissioning operation at the site has been under way for the past four months, although six core buildings that house the toilets and other facilities remain intact. The floor has been levelled in preparation for any events, but so far the only confirmed date is the Ministry of Sound New Year’s Eve party, which will see the interior transformed into four club areas. “We are in talks with several potential users,” an English Partnerships spokeswoman said. “There is no flat fee for hiring the venue. Events will be considered on a cost-by-cost basis.”
