The Windsor Hall, Bournemouth International Centre

The Windsor Hall is a part of the Bournemouth International Centre, the largest venue on the South Coast of England. It’s situated on Exeter Road, close to Bournemouth Central Station.

The BIC’s complex of multi-purpose venues was built in 1984 and the 6,500 seat Winsor Hall is its best-known feature. Since its opening the Windsor Hall has hosted some of the biggest names in entertainment including McFly, Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Seal and the Moscow Ballet.

When it first opened the complex contained a leisure pool and gymnasium, but these were closed in June 2004. To compensate for these lost facilities and in response to the popularity of the centre, more modern additions to the BIC were made, thanks to a £6 million investment from Bournemouth Borough Council in 1990. These included the impressively spacious, circular Purbeck Hall.

In 2003 further enhancements were made to the complex in the form of a fourth venue, the Solent Hall. In the same year Windsor Hall underwent expansion, a welcome addition and an understandable development given its status it as the BIC’s most popular venue.

The layout, size and atmosphere of the Windsor Hall make it the perfect place to see an eclectic mix of performances encompassing dance, drama and music. Recent successes include Grease, Motown’s Greatest Hits, The Voice UK Live, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and the UK tour of Starlight Express.

Whatever you decide to see at the Windsor Hall, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
