Ulster Hall

34 Bedford Street, Belfast BT2 7FF

The Ulster Hall is one of Belfast's most recognisable buildings.  After a two year renovation programme, it re-opened in 2009 and is well worth a tour - it's also home to the Ulster Orchestra who received a brand spanking new Steinway as part of the refurbishment.  A regular venue for shows, plays, festivals, boxing and other sporting events, it is probably most famous as a music venue.  If you are lucky, during a tour you may get to listen in on a rehearsal by the Ulster Orchestra.  And it was here that Led Zeppelin first premiered 'Stairway To Heaven' during their gig in March 1971 - the Belfast audience wasn't keen!!  There is an audio visual display showing some of the venue's most famous performers.  A Starbucks franchise in the foyer serves coffee (as expected) with a selection of cakes, pastries and light lunch options.  It has a jam packed annual programme and performance tickets can usually be purchased in advance at the Box Office in either the Ulster Hall or its sister venue, the Waterfront.  Grab a cuppa, pull up a sofa and keep your eyes peeled for some famous celebs.
