We are so excited that the Great Hall has won the RICS Social Impact Award within the leisure category.
Opened in September 2019, The Great Hall delivers Kent College a fantastic new facility which has become a focal point for school life and a key venue for Kent. The impressive state-of-the-art 600-seat auditorium provides cutting-edge facilities for worship, concerts and the performing arts for the school and the wider community including being a key venue to host 4 events in support of the independent charity ‘The Canterbury Festival’ in 2019.
The judges said:
The needs not only of Kent College School but also those of the local people were considered in detail and led to an impressive building with a 600 seat auditorium not only for the school use but the larger Kent community. Cutting edge facilities are provided in the great Hall for concerts, performing arts, conventions, exhibitions and small workshops as well as school assembly and activities and also provides revenue from external users.
