Attended a Political Conference in St Columb's Hall in March 2016. The venue is magnificent and the history and character is marvellous. Loads of room and a well stocked bar.

went here to see the undertones at Christmas. the place looks great having been completely revamped and restored to its former glory. there is of course a bar and there are several different entrances to the main auditorium so its not too much of a crush. the balcony is great too, and seated.

Recently myself and some friends attended The Undertones concert in St Columb's Hall. The venue was perfect for the occasion, spacous etc. Also a great location, right in the centre of the city.

We happened to be staying in Derry for a week and found leaflets at our hotel advertizing Derry's 3rd International Choral Festival. We love singing, especially by young people. So we went to three competitions in this splendid hall. Worth every penny of the £3 a day, especially as we got to hear the King's Singers and a couple of... More

This beautiful old building is located next to Derry's famous walls, behind the library and next door to the Forum. It was built in 1886 and it only opens up for functions now. There are two main spaces, which are the main hall and an art house cinema. Apparently pantomimes were popular here in the 50's and 60's.

We recently used St Columb's Hall to host our annual Christmas Party. As our numbers weren't huge, we used the hidden gem Balcony Room which gave us a setting for the most stunning Black Tie party. Our meal which was catered by Morans was incredible, all food was hot, guests had more than enough and they also made sure that... More

I recently used this venue to style and host my first ever Ball. Success from the outset. Management team went above and beyond with the planning and added to the exciting anticipation. The location and venue are perfect - easy access: couldnt be more central and what a building. Civic, historic and oozes character. For the first time it threw... More

St Columb's Hall provided us with a fantastic venue for our corporate event. The building was just beautiful and really added to the atmosphere of the event. The Organisation Staff from the St Columbs Hall group were a pleasure to work with and gave us first class service. I can't recommend the venue enough. Top Class!
