The Queen's Hall - interior wideshot (credit: Alastair Wight)The Queen's Hall has a long and interesting history, originally as a Georgian church (1823-1976) and now as a vibrant concert hall (1979-today). On this page and the ones linked to it, we hope to present some of The Queen's Hall history and archive.

The Queen's Hall wikipedia page has a condensed history of the building and - as it's a wiki - is open for editing and revision if you have more information to add.
