Darke Hall Society

Darke Hall takes its name from Francis Nicholson Darke who was a prominent Regina businessman in the late 19th and early 20th century. For almost a century, Darke Hall was a cultural hub for the city. It was prized by artists and patrons for its outstanding acoustics and gorgeous interior. After a six year closure, Darke Hall has been restored and transformed into a modern, accessible venue while maintaining and refurbishing its architectural heritage.

Thank-you for considering a gift in support of Darke Hall and the focus of being a venue where artists and arts organizations can thrive in an environment that is affordable, accessible, and respectful of diverse artistic and cultural practices.

Employees of the University of Regina can also make a gift via payroll deduction or their APEA fund.
