Description of chosen placeBuilt beneath Cave Hill in 1935, the Art Deco Floral Hall was one of the city's most celebrated dance venues. But today this fabulous listed building, while under the ownership of Belfast City Council, has been allowed to deteriorate into a shocking and perilous state. It costs £13.50 to see the Floral Hall in Belfast Zoo today, which may have helped it become forgotten. But for thousands of Belfast residents of a certain vintage, this wonderful dance hall will always hold special memories.
What do you imagine the space could be?The Floral Hall should be Northern Ireland's centre of dance excellence, holding shows, dances, classes and competitions within its beautifully restored Art Deco rooms. For that to happen, this building needs urgently saved before it's too late.
