Queen's Hall - The Regions Leading Performing Arts Centre, was built in 1959 through the efforts of the music community led by Mrs May Johnstone, a music teacher and partially funded by the Government of Trinidad & Tobago. It is designed as a multi purpose facility to accommodate theatrical presentations and various community activities including sport and has seating for 782. The Hall is located on 3 ½ acres of land at the entrance to St Ann's and Cascade, the 30,000 square-foot arts centre provides an environment for a wide variety of world-class events and an eclectic mix of theatre, music, dance and other performing arts disciplines.
Both national and international companies as well as established and emerging artistes make use of the facility. Its eminent neighbours are the President's House on one side and the Prime Minister's residence on the other. With the completion of Phase II of the Queen's Hall redevelopment, the facility now boasts of the following:
- Box Office
- Ramp access for the physically challenged
- VIP garden/Reception area
- Catering facilities
- Exquisitely designed lobby
- Beautifully landscaped grounds
