The O2 Guildhall Southampton: still standing strong
While a town hall for Southampton was proposed in 1878, it took more than fifty years for construction to actually begin. Built in the classical style, the building was formally opened in 1937 and amazed audiences with the inclusion of a custom-made, 4,000-pipe organ that was the biggest instrument ever to be made by organ-builder John Compton. Now a protected building, The O2 Guildhall Southampton is located at the heart of the city and is an important part of Southampton's history and culture. Constantly moving with the times, it's survived everything that has been thrown at it over the years - from dramatic events such as an unexploded bomb landing right in the middle of it during World War II, to the explosion of a new musical sound in the 1970s. Events at The O2 Guildhall Southampton began with jazz and progressed to include some of the greatest rock bands of the ages, not to mention today's eclectic programme of music, comedy and festivals. Catch them all with tickets to The O2 Guildhall Southampton: a venue that perfectly combines history and modernity.
