G Live opened in September 2011 on the site of Guildford’s former Civic Hall. Its landmark inspirational architecture and light-filled foyers make it the perfect setting in which to enjoy live music, dance, comedy, musicals and a host of famous faces.
The Main Hall offers some of the best acoustics in the UK, and is home to the prestigious Guildford International Concert Season, which features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a host of other world-class orchestras, conductors and soloists. The complementary Bellerby Studio is a versatile space with integral bar that offers an experience that will surprise and inspire, with a range of performances, creative workshops, gigs and community events.
G Live is also a busy conferencing hub and regularly hosts events by national businesses, as well as numerous award ceremonies, product launches and smaller local business networking events.
Visitors to the venue have a choice of excellent dining options, from the contemporary Mezzanine Restaurant which offers a seasonal changing bistro-style menu, to the spacious Café which open during the day for coffees and pastries, and serves light bites and sharing platters pre-show.
HQT&H manages G Live on behalf of Guildford Borough Council.
