Princes Hall

About the Theatre

Named for HRH Prince Phillip The Duke Of Edinburgh, the Princes Hall, Aldershot is a multi purpose centre in Aldershot, Hampshire, owned and managed by Rushmoor Borough Council.

HRH Prince Phillip The Duke Of Edinburgh formally opened the building on Thursday 22nd May 1973. The Princes Hall was originally designed as a civic venue to be used by the council for hosting formal and mayoral events. An unusual design with the main auditorium on the first floor and small meeting rooms beneath created an impressive staircase and entrance. An extensive refurbishment occurred between 1989 and 1990 and bought the Princes Hall into the layout you see today.

The Princes Hall was re-opened on 17th December 1990 by the then Mayor of Rushmoor Cllr AM Ferrier.

For a short period during 1990 the Princes Hall was renamed ‘Princes’, but due to public demand quickly returned to its original name.

2000 onwards saw many additional improvements including automatic doors, more comfortable and automatic terraced seating, new motorised fly bars over the stage and the redecoration of the auditorium, bar and suites. The Princes Hall has also benefited from an increased programme of events including many famous names, such as Ken Dodd, Jools Holland, Joe Pasquale, Tony Christie and many more. During May 2006 the Princes Hall hosted its first ever ice show, Snow White ON ICE featuring the Russian Ice Stars and over 14 tonnes of crushed ice on the stage.
