Harrogate’s Royal Hall, is a stunning Edwardian Theatre built in 1903.  Recently restored to its original magnificence, the Royal Hall is the only surviving ‘Kursaal’ in mainland UK.

Originally called the Kursaal, the Royal Hall’s name was changed during World War 1 to reflect a more patriotic position.

Kursaal is a German word which literally means “Cure Hall”, but in practice is used primarily for grand receptions and special occasions. Kursaals were a popular form of building in European spa destinations of the late 19th century, but never really caught on in Britain.

The building was designed by Robert Beale and Frank Matcham and was loosely based on Ostende Kursall in Belgium. 

Dress Code: Lounge Suits

*The price includes pre-dinner drinks, a three course dinner, wine and entertainment
