St. George's Hall

Viewing: Photo | Street View

St. George’s Hall is located on the corner of Hall Ings and Bridge Street in Bradford town centre. It started life as a Victorian concert hall in 1853. It intermittently showed films between 1898 and 1900. More regular seasons began in 1901 and lasted until 1925 when the hall was sold to New Century Pictures and it became a permanent cinema with 2,204 seats in stalls and three ‘U’ shaped balconies.

It was taken over two years later by Gaumont-British Theatres, who ran it until March 1949. After a couple of years closure St. George’s was restored and reopened as a concert hall, a function which it continues to fulfil to the present day.

After the partial collapse of the ceiling in 2003 (the 150th anniversay of the hall), the auditorium has now been restored and is in splendid shape. The Hall is well used for concerts, comedy and even opera and is destined to be a part of the cultural life of Bradford for years to come.
