Wilton’s Music Hall is unique. It is the only mid-Victorian Music Hall that survives, anywhere and is listed at Grade II*. For everyone who has been there the atmosphere of the Hall hidden behind dilapidated houses is unforgettable.

By 2006, the Hall and row of houses were extremely fragile and in a state of considerable disrepair. Tim Ronalds Architects approach was not to transform the building, not to carry out an academic restoration, nor to equip the hall as a theatre space – but simply to do what was necessary to make the building safe, sound and useable.

The atmosphere of places like Wilton’s is precious and can easily be lost. This project shows how sensitivity, practicality and ingenuity can be employed to achieve magical results.

Join us to hear about Wiltons, Hackney Empire and other ‘resurrected’ buildings enjoying a new lease of life through sensitive, minimal and practical interventions.
