Watford Colosseum
Watford Colosseum is a 1,309 seat venue in the heart of Watford and is home to the best live music and entertainment outside London. Watford Colosseum was built in 1938 as the Watford Town Hall Assembly Rooms to the design of architect Charles Cowles-Voysey and acoustician Hope Bagenal. Bagenal’s other acoustic projects include the refurbishment of the Royal Albert Hall and the construction of the Royal Festival Hall.

Watford’s premier concert venue is world renowned for its acoustic qualities. Julian Lloyd Webber described Watford Colosseum as “the finest recording venue in the world” and it has been used to record the soundtracks of Lord of the Rings, The Sound of Music and Star Wars. In 1995, Pavarotti came to Watford Colosseum to record Verdi’s Inno delle Nazioni with the Philharmonia Chorus. More recently, recordings from BBC Concert Orchestra have taken place in the auditorium.

    We live in the darkest of times. As power-drunk clowns cast a shadow of despair across the land, our people cower in tumbledown hovels. The children do not dance and the birds are silent. Hope is crushed. Where are the heroes that this world needs, the heroes that this world deserves? Cast aside despair, people, for the tide will turn! We are men in tight costumes, and we are ready to fight with every weapon that our forefathers have bequeathed – the guitar axe, the drum hammer, the bejewelled codpiece, and the banshee wail of righteous anger. And we shall not be cowed by the nay-sayers, nor bought off by the money lenders, nor gagged by the reeking stench of pious indifference that pours from the orifices of the clown-lords. Cometh the day, cometh the band. We are The Darkness and we bring you Light! This is the first day in our new world, and EASTER IS CANCELLED!

      “I remember that winter because it had brought the heaviest snow I had ever seen. Snow had fallen steadily all night long and in the morning I woke in a room filled with light and silence, the whole world seemed to be held in a dream-like stillness. It was a magical day… and it was on that day I made the Snowman.”   One winter’s day, a boy builds a snowman who comes to life at the stroke of midnight… This Christmas, join us on an immersive magical journey and experience the heartwarming tale of The Snowman, screened with live orchestra. This BAFTA-winning classic, with the song “Walking in the Air”, is a cinematic gem and features Raymond Briggs’ story with music by Howard Blake, performed for you by Orpheus Sinfonia. This wonderful event is preceded by an interactive introduction, Orpheus Sinfonia will guide the audience to discover and find the instruments of the orchestra. New for 2019, this interactive introduction includes some 'festive favourites' followed by an opportunity to meet a certain special snowy person... A perfect festive outing for the whole family, that will charm the entire audience.
