Book Online

Come along and join us for a guided tour of the Malt Cross music hall. The tour usually lasts between 60-90 minutes depending on the pace of the group.

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. 

Please note there is currently no access to our caves due to ongoing repair works.
