De Montfort Hall: entertainment inside and outdoors
De Montfort Hall is located just outside the city of Leicester, in spacious grounds adjoining Victoria Park. Opened in 1913, the impressive white building was designed by architect Shirley Harrison and has a graceful colonnaded front. Inside, you'll find an auditorium that can be arranged in various different layouts, giving De Montfort Hall a capacity of 400 to 2,200, as well as an impressive 6,000-pipe organ that regularly attracts some of the world's greatest organists to give recitals in the hall. Besides classical music, ballet and opera, De Montfort Hall events include rock, pop and world music gigs, comedy and lectures, dance performances and festivals. Of these, the most famous is undoubtedly the Navratri festival, which is celebrated by the Hindu community at De Monfort Hall every year. The summer months see the outdoor amphitheatre come into play, providing space for up to 7,000 people to watch outdoor plays and concerts. Whatever time of year you get your tickets for De Montfort Hall, you can be assured of a unique entertainment experience in this beautiful and historic setting.
