The Albert Hall is an elegant example of the ‘Federal Capital’ style of architecture of the 1920s, also called Renaissance Revival or Classical Revival style.

The Albert Hall is unique in that it retains most of its original exterior and interior elements and some features of the original landscape.

Designed by J Hunter Kirkpatrick assisted by Robert Casboulte, its notable features are the arch-headed windows, the lonic pilasters and the Roman tiled roof.

The Hall seats 450 in the auditorium and 140 in the gallery. Information is also available about 2009-10 Renovations and the Albert Hall Reference Group.
