VICTORIA HALL, HANLEY, STOKE-ON-TRENT

  • Comment
LEVITT BERNSTEIN ASSOCIATES

The Victoria Hall is a fine town hall/concert hall with a flat floor and two levels of balcony seating on three sides and an orchestral platform surmounted by an organ on the fourth side.

This project, some 150m from the Regent Theatre (below), restores and improves the original hall, greatly enhancing the technical provision, access to the stage, seating comfort and sightlines.

The original building was devoid of front-of-house spaces, so a new foyer block is being built to one side of the hall, joined to it by a four-storey- high glazed street across which bridges provide access to the auditorium. The new building contains bars, cafe, box office, administrative offices and other support facilities.

Dressing rooms are created by conversion of the cell block attached to the adjacent redundant courtroom. The scheme is due for completion in the autumn of 1998.
