Malt Cross Heritage Tour: Music Hall & Caves

Fridays at 2pm and Saturdays at 12noon and 2pm

Come along and join an hour-long guided tour of the Malt Cross music hall and the old sandstone caves below.

The Malt Cross is a traditional Victorian music hall and cafe bar situated just off the Market Square in the heart of Nottingham. It is one of the last remaining music halls in the UK and provides a fascinating glimpse at the social and cultural development of popular music and performance.

Learn about the people who designed and built the music hall in 1877 and the performers who graced its stage when it functioned as a vibrant entertainment venue, mainly for the working classes. Hear about its glorious days as a live music venue and the slow decline of the music hall's reputation due to gambling, crime and debauchery which led to it being closed in 1911. 

You will also be invited to explore the two floors below the music hall which have recently been renovated thanks to a £1.38 million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. These floors, which have not previously been accessible to the public, now feature our Arts and Heritage workshop space as well as Plates record shop and the Henderson Art Gallery. 

We also now have the pleasure of offering access to an historic underground cave network below the streets of Nottingham where the public can explore the history of our site dating back over 300 years.

Book online at www.maltcross.com or purchase tickets at the Café Bar.

£3 per person

Access: There is lift access to most floors however the caves are not lift accessible.
