Winter Gardens

View of the winter gardens from the street

Brief description

Built in 1911, the building consists of two main halls – the Kings Hall and the Queens Hall.

The Kings Hall consists of a dance floor, stage area, and two balconies overlooking the main hall dance floor. Behind both balconies are smaller rooms which are accessed via a staircase on either side of the balconies.

The main hall is 35m x 29m with a stage width of 10.2m.  There are nine dressing rooms behind the main stage of varying sizes. The building has disabled access, with a large car park at the rear of the building. There is access from either side to the front of the building via a steep slope. The main entrance fronting Fort Crescent is accessed via a concrete staircase.

The Queens Hall is the smaller of the two halls. The half circle area has a small stage in the centre of the semi-circle. There are six basic dressing rooms behind the stage. Opposite the stage is a raised balcony area with tables and chairs. There are two kiosk areas that can dispense refreshments when required.



At the rear of the building accessed from Fort Crescent is a large parking area on the promenade. This area is suitable for a unit base.  There is additional pay & display parking available close by at Trinity Square.


This venue facility has Gents, Ladies and Disabled facilities.


The Winter Gardens has full catering available.
