The fascinating Wilton’s Music Hall
The capital of England, London is home to some of the world’s most renowned and visited landmarks. And while everybody has heard of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park very few people are aware that the city is home to numerous hidden gems that are worth a visit and that are amongst London’s more emblematic landmarks.
One of these hidden landmarks lies in Graces Ally on Cable Street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Wilton’s Music Hall is one of the city’s most popular entertainment venues and attracts both local and foreign visitors by the number. The hall was designed by English architect Jacob Maggs and was built in 1859. Since its establishment the music hall was rebuilt twice, once in 1878 by J. Buckley Wilson and once from 1979 to 1989 by Peter Newson. Today the Wilton’s Music Hall is listed as a Grade II edifice and is one of the very few surviving music halls in the city. The most amazing aspect of the hall is that it has retained most of its original features throughout the years.
Since 2004 Wilton’s Music Hall has been a production venue. It produces unique, imaginative and easily distinguishable plays that are based on the early music hall traditions. However the plays are reengineered to be more suitable to the preferences of the modern audience. The hall stages various types of plays such as puppetry, classical music, cabaret, magic, dance and opera. The currently capacity of the venue is 300 spectators.
Wilton’s Music Hall is listed as a heritage site and is currently the subject of a third restoration project which according to plan will end in 2015. The amazing thing about this restoration project is that the hall won’t close during it. Instead Wilton’s will still host plays and we will present to its audience its one of kind productions.
So if you have recently moved to the Borough of Tower Hamlets via the aid of man and van services, don’t wait long to visit this amazing hall that has survived the test of time. Even more you can attend at one of the remarkable productions that the hall stages. We are more than certain that you will enjoy it in full and become a regular visitor of the Wilton’s.
On the other hand if you are moving out of the borough with the aid of a man and van company and you haven’t yet visited the hall, don’t wait a moment longer to do it because you will regret it if you fail to do it. Just keep in mind that people from all over the country and world are coming to London to see Wilton’s Music Hall in person, so it would really be a pity if you don’t visit it at least once before you leave the area.
If you are worried that you won’t be able to find reliable man and van services for your move to or from the Borough of Tower Hamlets, don’t be because the area is home to some of London’s finest moving companies.
Before you visit the hall make sure that it is not temporary closed because of the ongoing restoration project.
