Raising the Roof on the Belfast Waterfront Hall

The unique Belfast Waterfront Hall complex, commissioned by Belfast City Council, comprises a 2250-seat main auditorium and an adjoining 500-seat minor hall. Designed for a wide usage spectrum, the versatile complex caters for orchestral events, concerts, theatre, exhibitions and conferences. It not only forms the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Lagan Riverside rejuvenation strategy but symbolises the cultural and economic resurgence of a city once torn apart by terrorist activity. D. McQuillan and R.N. Roulston
