As part of the refurbishment, following months of extensive work to the venue’s ageing roof, specialist contractors are now nearing completion to fully re-slate the roof.
Inside the venue, where possible the front-of-house areas have been increased and will be decorated sympathetically to suit the heritage of the building. Improved sight lines and comfort of the seating in the auditorium is progressing, whilst ensuring the world class acoustics are unaffected.
The venue is due to reopen to acts from January 2019. Multi-million selling recording artist and Olivier Award-winning actress, Barbara Dickson OBE, will visit St George’s Hall on Friday 15 February as part of her 2019 UK Tour.
Robert White, the comedian who reached the finals on this year's Britain’s Got Talent, will stop off at St George’s Hall on Saturday 16 February as part of his recently announced The Tank Top Tour. Plus comedian Stewart Francis will perform at the venue on Saturday 13 April, as part of his Into the Punset farewell tour.
Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said:
“The refurbishment of St George’s Hall will ensure that this heritage building is maintained and brought up to standard as a top class venue adding to the fantastic cultural offer in Bradford. Work is progressing well and I’m sure once complete will secure the building for future generations of audiences.”
Tickets for these events will go on sale in early July (exact dates to be confirmed) and will be available to purchase from the Bradford Theatres Box Office on 01274 432000 or via the website: bradford-theatres.co.uk
