Hong Kong City Hall

Due to current health precautions, the performance venues have adopted special seating arrangements. Please check their respective websites before you visit.

Hong Kong City Hall, Hong Kong’s first purpose-built cultural complex, opened in 1962 and has served as a prime performance venue for a variety of cultural and arts activities. Its facilities include the Concert Hall, the Theatre and the Exhibition Hall and the city’s first public library. 

With a seating capacity of 1,430, the Concert Hall has excellent acoustics and is suitable for a wide range of performances including symphonies, chamber music, recitals, jazz, operas, theatre and Chinese opera. The unique design of the 463-seat Theatre is ideal for drama and stage productions of a smaller scale.

More than 10,000 local and overseas arts troupes have performed at City Hall since its inauguration, including the New York Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Stuttgart Ballet, the Peking Opera Troupe of Beijing, Yo-Yo Ma and Vladimir Ashkenazy.

The building itself also set a trend in Hong Kong, making this cultural complex a landmark of the city’s 1960s architecture. It is listed as a heritage site.
