Portsmouth’s iconic Guildhall has stood at the heart of the city and the people it serves for over 130 years.

From Town Hall to Guildhall as Portsmouth was raised to city status in 1926, the building was destroyed by WWII incendiary bombs in 1941. The same spirit that saw Portsmouth survive the Blitz, ensured the survival of the Guildhall as it was lovingly rebuilt and re-opened in 1959 by HM The Queen as a Concert Hall.

It is with this same spirit that the Guildhall will recover from Covid and get back to doing what we love and do best – entertaining, inspiring and transforming lives.

Still renowned for staging world-class entertainment, the Guildhall is today a venue for all Events and Occasions.

One of the largest and most flexible Conference and Meeting venues in the South, an idyllic and sought-after location for Weddings and Celebrations and the producer of some of the region’s most popular events including the Dance Live! competition and Portsmouth International Comic Con.
