BY GEORGE! Opened in 1853 and one of the UK’s oldest concert halls, Bradford’s St George’s Hall has seen a wide range of the world’s entertainment icons take to its stage, from Charles Dickens to David Bowie. The recent £9.8m transformational refurbishment has included major structural work to its roof, windows, electrics and stone work, as well as increasing front-of-house area space and upgrading the venue’s seating arrangements, whilst retaining its renowned and world-class auditorium acoustics. An exhibition of tickets and posters from historic productions over the last century and a half are currently on display in the hall’s foyer and bar areas. bradford-theatres.co.uk/venues/st-georges-hall
