Date:December 1963

Description:The front of Queen's Hall on Wedgwood Street in Burslem. This grade II listed building has been both a Town Hall and theatre. Built in 1911 with three entrance doors, Corinthian columns, and an elaborate façade it was originally intended to be Burslem's third Town Hall. Federation of the six towns in 1910 meant that the building became a theatre and not the anticipated municipal centre for the unified city.

The building has a large concert hall but a small stage. Commercial theatre productions ceased in the 1960s and after lying dormant for many years it has become the home of the Queen's Theatre Production Society and the North Staffs Amateur Operatic & Dramatic society.
