Having hosted some of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Preston Guild Hall & Charter Theatre has witnessed the musical talents of Led Zeppelin, Jackson 5, and David Bowie. The entertainment venue is a multifunctional space, showcasing theatre shows, live music, conferences and events, and has a range of dining options available thanks to recent investments. Fresh developments occurring at the Hall have generated an exciting phase in Preston’s entertainment history. One of the latest additions, LiVe! was refurbished in 2014, transforming the old foyer space into an arena for intimate gigs and exhibitions with a smaller capacity of 350 seated and 500 standing. The Grand Hall is a multipurpose space boasting much larger capacities, and the Charter Theatre offers a more traditional theatre environment with a proscenium arch, black box stage, and seating spread across two levels. Visitors to Preston Guild Hall can take their pick from the onsite restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Fill up on pasta and pizza at The Villa Italian, or snack and share tasty grub at Level. For those wanting to celebrate a special evening out, Preston Guild Hall also features a stylish cocktail and wine bar, ReView, which blends classic and contemporary creations. There is also an impressive terrace during the summer months, which transcends across some of the facilities and is a great way to gaze out onto the city as you dine.
