The Halls - Renovation Project 2024

The Halls is now closed for the duration of 2024, as its extensive renovation project gets under way.

The venue, which includes St Andrews and Blackfriars Hall, part of a medieval friary complex, will undergo essential structural work to its roof, stained glass windows and secondary glazing.

The venue facilities are also to be upgraded with investment in audio visual equipment and lighting, a major redesign to improve flow and accessibility, a revamp of the outside space, and an enhanced café and bar offer.

The project is benefitting from Town Deal funding awarded in 2020 to venue owners Norwich City Council, with The Halls receiving £3.6m to transform this unique city centre heritage asset into a multi-use performance venue for concerts, trade fairs, corporate meetings, film sets and weddings.

The project, predicted to complete in spring 2025, will support the wider cultural provision in the city, as well as contributing to the Norwich 2040 Vision of a creative, fair, liveable, connected, and dynamic city.

During the duration of the renovation work, The Halls will not be available to hire.
