The beautiful town hall, like a stately ship, in the heart of the Theatre District – lit by Electric Canvas for a special event a couple of years ago.
The acoustics of the Great Hall and Concert Chamber are unsurpassed. The Town Hall is the natural home of classical music in Auckland, regularly hosting the superb Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and visiting artists such as UK organist John Scott.
Although kept in excellent condition by Auckland City Council, the once opulent front of house areas have a decidedly ‘conference’ feel and these areas retain little individuality.
