Aberdeen’s iconic Music Hall re-opened on December 8, 2018, after a two-and-a-half year renovation and restoration.
The £9 million transformation was spearheaded by arts charity Aberdeen Performing Arts.
The work included upgrading to the historic auditorium with new seating, flooring and more flexible staging; new performance, rehearsal and education spaces; a new foyer, box office and café bar; and new ramps and lifts to improve access to all areas.
An ongoing fundraising campaign to help meet the cost of the project has seen 34 investors, 20 business sponsors, nine trusts and foundations, and five public sector partners pledge their support.
Backers include Aberdeen City Council, Creative Scotland, Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Environment Scotland, The Robertson Trust, The Foyle Foundation, Garfield Weston, The Wolfson Foundation and The Hugh Fraser Foundation.
