St. George’s Hall is a grade II listed building in the heart of Bradford city centre. Built in 1853 with the aim to bring art to ‘the people’, this building has an incredible history and has recently enjoyed an extensive refurbishment funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Bradford Council.

As part of the opening celebrations, The Brick Box were asked by Bradford Theatres to programme a gala event on Sunday 2nd June 2019; A People’s Music Hall to celebrate the wonderful and diverse creativity in this fair city. And what a show!
