Watford Borough Council – Town Hall and Colosseum

Watford Town Hall and Colosseum form the ‘cultural hub’ of the town centre, with the Colosseum being a 1200 seat premier entertainment venue renowned for its acoustic qualities. The large historic auditorium is home to the BBC concert orchestra.

This exciting £20m re-development project will include the remodelling of both buildings. The visitor experience to the Colosseum will be enhanced with new bars and a second entertainment venue, whilst the Town Hall will undergo a major transformation to provide modern energy efficient flexible office and community spaces.

The historic council chamber, committee rooms are heritage areas within the building will be retained to become new exhibition and museum spaces.

New M&E services will be provided throughout including high efficiency heating plant, suited to a future low carbon district heating system as well as new LED lighting, heat recovery ventilation and ultra-fast data connectivity.
