The Great Hall

The Great Hall

Since 1889, The Great Hall has been a focal point of Toronto community and current events. Founded by captain of industry Samuel J. Moore to house the West End YMCA, The Great Hall quickly became a hub for public entertainment, speeches, well baby clinics, a major newspaper, and even temporary accommodations for WWII refugees. By the mid-1980s, it housed important cultural institutions like the Toronto School of Art, the Music Gallery and the Theatre Centre. Today, it continues to be voted one of the "Best Live Music Venues in Toronto" while hosting everyone from political party leaders and stand-out figures in the arts to top corporations and memorable weddings.

This Toronto landmark and heritage venue since 1889 is in the midst of a careful restoration. This storied home to decades of meetings, musical and artistic performances, milestone celebrations and major events is getting freshly polished so that our four multi-use venues – the Main Hall, the Conversation Room, the Lower Hall and Studio 3 – are always perfectly ready to welcome you, and future generations of guests.
