Royal Concert Hall

In the early 1980s, we designed a new 2,500 seat multi-function hall adjacent to Nottingham's Theatre Royal.

The acoustics are designed for live symphonic music, and are adjustable to suit amplified or spoken sound. The hall features a large orchestra pit, flexible staging and wings and retractable seating tiers.
