In 1895 the renowned theatre architect Frank Matcham bestowed on Belfast one of his most imaginative and opulent creations. The Grand Opera House is one of Belfast’s most iconic buildings, the city’s foremost cultural asset, and the only remaining Victorian theatre in Northern Ireland. The Grand Opera House was the first building in Belfast to gain Grade A listed status, and features one of the city’s richest and most splendid interiors. In 2020 the Grand Opera House Trust embarked upon a £12.2m redevelopment of the Theatre's internal spaces. Kaleidoscope is proud to have been part of the integrated design team who helped secure the funding for this incredible project.
