Built in 1959 and located in Port of Spain on a picturesque three-acre site at the entrance to St Ann’s and Cascade, the 30,000 square-foot arts centre provides an environment for a wide variety of world class events, and an eclectic mix of theatre, music, dance and other performing arts disciplines.
Distinctive events need distinctive spaces and Queen’s Hall, the flagship of the performing arts sector in Trinidad and Tobago, offers some of the city’s most exciting and unusual spaces to host headliner events.
While the priority focus for Queen’s Hall is the Performing Arts sector, the location has become an ideal venue for use by the corporate sector. With 782-seats the Hall can accommodate company launches, presentations and conferences.
The Royal Opera House Chamber Ensemble tipped their hats to the Queen’s Hall Auditorium when the Artistic Director called the Hall one of the best in which they had ever played. It was a compliment not to be taken lightly, as much time and effort was spent during the re-development of the Hall (2000-2002) to set new best-in-class standards, which saw the installation of state-of-the-art audio, theatrical lighting and stage equipment.
As a performing arts centre, Queen’s Hall has a long-standing relationship with many community-based organisations and schools through the programmes they stage. The Hall operates as a semi-autonomous agency under The Ministry of the Arts and Multiculturalism and supports and reaches thousands of young people through national programmes such as the Prime Minister’s Best Village Competition and the National Music Festival.
