The beautiful setting of Portsmouth Guildhall
The architect of Portsmouth Guildhall, William Hill, was known for designing imposing buildings in a neo-classical style. Unfortunately, much of the original structure was lost to bomb damage during World War II, meaning that iconic elements like the dome above the clock tower or detailed interior decorations can no longer be seen today. Nonetheless, it's a majestic building at the heart of the old city of Portsmouth and an unusual location to see both big and up-and-coming names in the music industry give blistering performances. The history of Portsmouth Guildhall gigs reads like a who's-who in British music: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin all performed here and recent years have seen Franz Ferdinand, The Kooks, Jake Bugg and The xx take to the stage. From classical to pop, blues to rap, you'll find every genre of music represented and musicians from Britain and the rest of the world stopping by on tour.
