The Floral Hall Belfast

View On Black

 

Located within the grounds of the zoo is a 1930s art deco ballroom, the Floral Hall. In the 1960s the hall was a popular venue for visiting musical artists including Pink Floyd and The Small Faces. The hall has been derelict since the outbreak of the The Troubles in the 1970s. Belfast Buildings Preservation Trust are planning to renovate the building, although Belfast City Council have yet to provide any funding. A lengthy search for a wealthy entrepreneur to fund the redevelopment of the building has so far proved fruitless. THis image also appears at bbpt.org/floralhall.php
