The Royal Hall, Harrogate, on Ripon Road and Kings Road.
The Royal Hall was built by R. J. Beale and F. Matcham in 1903. Pevsner describes it as 'a cheerful building with funny short columns on the upper floor and several fancifully shaped little lanterns and cupolas'! Its a great concert hall and a pleasure to sing there in a charity concert with the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir from Danby, North Yorkshire.
