Albert Hall, Nottingham

Albert Hall, Nottingham

Albert Hall was constructed in 1873. It was intended to be the largest concert hall in Nottingham, but a devastating fire during construction led scaling back the size of the building. After the fire, there was a second attempt to construct the hall. The new Edwardian concert hall finally opened in 1910. The building is a true work of art and is a source of pride for Nottingham residents.
