St George's Hall, Bradford

One of the UK’s oldest concert halls

About St George's Hall

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

The extensive 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. Find out more about the history and renovation of St George’s Hall – the People’s Palace here

Brand new seats have also been installed after specialist consultants advised on ways to improve sight lines and comfort in the auditorium, whilst ensuring the world class acoustics are unaffected.
