The hall is a multi-purpose arts and entertainment venue presenting a wide-ranging programme of performances that include musicals, opera, popular touring artists, stand-up comedy, family shows and classical concerts.

Join a walking tour of the workings of the Hall’s magnificent pipe organ, visit the dressing rooms used by the stars, step out onto the stage and learn about what goes on behind the scenes at this glorious venue.
