An exclusive architect-led, behind the scenes tour of this RIBA London Award winning building by Tim Ronalds Architects.

The building, described by the jury panel during the RIBA Awards process as:

'These exposed layers of history gave areas of the building an archaeological character and there was great skill deployed in the way the building has been reconfigured and upgraded without a loss of patina and atmosphere. While this is a conservation project, as the story unfolded it emerged that the surfaces bore traces of previous occupation and abandonment.

'These found qualities of the building have been carefully preserved, creating a visual narrative more subtle and engaging than in a straightforward restoration. Leaving aside the historical importance of the building as the last surviving Music Hall in London, this is pure theatre and an experience to really savour.'

Join RIBA London on this unique tour to discover the stories behind the Wilton's Music Hall what inspired the architect and what it means to have won this prize. Book now for your chance to hear the what makes this an award winning building.
