Huddersfield Town Hall is a Grade II listed building in the heart of Huddersfield. The building was designed by John Henry Abbey in the Classical style. Then Princess, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the town hall and waved to the crowd from the balcony on 26 July 1949. As iconic as its history, it also houses a spectacular concert hall which can hold up to 1200 people and hosts numerous top-quality events throughout the year.
