About St George's Hall

Work nears completion of the extensive restoration of Bradford’s Grade II listed St George’s Hall, which is part funded by a £1.5m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The substantial refurbishment of this much loved building has included a wide-range of work both to its exterior and interior. As well as major works to the roof, windows, electrics and stonework, the front-of-house areas have been increased, where possible, and have been decorated sympathetically to suit the heritage of the building.

Specialist consultants have also advised on much needed changes to the seating in the auditorium. The aim is to improve sight lines and comfort in the auditorium, whilst ensuring the world class acoustics are unaffected. This means that there will be brand new seating and configuration in the venue.

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.”

St George’s Hall will reopen to the public in February 2019.

St George’s Hall is currently undergoing major refurbishment, which has been made possible by funding from Bradford Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
