The Ulster Hall dates back to 1862 and lies in the heart of the city. Its interesting yellow-bricked balcony and wrought ironwork add to the building's attractions-and so does its pronounced tilt! The Ulster Hall is among Belfast's premier venues, catering for concerts ranging from the Manic Street Preachers to organ recitals, rock gigs to Rimsky-Korsakov. Political rallies and debates are also held here. Most importantly of all, however, the Ulster Hall is a popular venue for the world-renowned Ulster Orchestra.
