Building    From 28/2/1820  To 6/2/1830

Argyll Rooms Concert Hall

Categories: Music / songs

The 'Argyll Rooms' venue opened in 1806. A new building was designed, as part of the Regent Street redevelopment, by John Nash himself, to provide a concert hall, other public rooms and shop space for the publications of the Royal Harmonic Institution who opened the building with a performance on 28 February 1820. The Institution was not a financial success and, coincidentally we're sure, the building was destroyed by fire in 1830. It was replaced with houses with shops on the ground floor.
