Royal Hall

The Royal Hall is a Grade II listed performance hall and theatre, located in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England.

With local benefactors led by engineering inventor Samson Fox, the building opened in 1903 as the Kursaal. Designed by Robert Beale and Frank Matcham, one of the most prolific theatre architects of his time, it was loosely based on the design of the Ostende Kursall in Belgium. Kursaal is a German language word which translates literally as “Cure Hall,” but was used for grand receptions and special occasions. A popular form of building in late 19th-century European spa destinations, the concept never caught on in the United Kingdom. Hence as World War I began, the theatre was renamed the more patriotic "Royal Hall"....Wikipedia
