It no longer exists. It is now an excellent Radisson Blu hotel. Gone is the wonderful auditorium and history. Still worth a visit for the afternoon tea.

The previous writer is quite correct, this IS now a hotel. But care has been taken to preserve the opulent facade and the Free Trade Hall remains an impressive building. It's just that it now has a different purpose.

We have spent many an hour or three at the Free Trade Hall. The facilities are first-class and the seating is comfortable. Perhaps it could be improved with a decent restaurant befor and after performances.

The Free Trade Hall has been demolished. Only the impressive facade remains. Everything behind has been pulled down and replaced by the Edwardian Radisson Hotel. I remember it for Halle concerts political meetings and rock concerts. A huge loss.
