ONE OF Worcester’s most historic buildings is set to have a brand new venue to showcase concerts, lectures, displays and exhibitions.

The Royal Porcelain Works will have a 144 seated venue named ‘The Henry Sandon Hall’, after the illustrious Worcester porcelain expert Henry Sandon MBE, in Autumn 2016.

The Bransford Trust and Worcester Live, who have formed a new partnership, made the announcement which will also see the area in front of the Museum of Royal Worcester developed and landscaped as part of the scheme to produce an attractive public space, and will be supported by a new café.

Chris Jaeger, Chief Executive of Worcester Live said: “I’m delighted to have the chance to expand our activities into this historic part of Worcester.




“The new hall will give us the opportunity to stage different types of events than at the Swan Theatre and Huntington Hall, and I anticipate many people will want to hire the space for meetings, product launches, talks and displays.”

Colin Kinnear, Chairman of the Bransford Trust said: “It’s been a long journey but we have come up with the right scheme and the right partners to further the development of the Royal Porcelain Works, and turn it into a cultural centre.


“We have supported Worcester Live for many years and believe they are ideally suited to making a real success of this exciting new venue.”

Planning permission is now under consideration.
