Saving Darke Hall

darke-hall-intDarke Hall, April 2021

A Temple to the Arts

Opened in 1929, Darke Hall has long-served as the premier concert hall in Regina. Benefactor F. N. Darke’s vision “to build a temple to the arts, and a centre for cultural activity” came to life as groups flocked to the space, prized for its acoustically-sound and visually stunning interior.

Almost 100 years later, thanks to the generous donations and support of our community, together we have breathed new life into this Prairie landmark, restoring Darke Hall to its former historical glory while ensuring that its modernization meets the needs of the 21st century.

With the restoration and modernization of Darke Hall and College Avenue Campus drawing to a close late 2021, we are pleased to share with you highlights from the restoration and a glimpse into the fond memories of generations of Darke Hall students, patrons, and community members.

Darke Hall Grand Reopening

The end of the Saving Darke Hall project marks an important milestone in returning a pillar of our community back to the people of Saskatchewan. Once current public health restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic allow, we will celebrate Darke Hall’s long-awaited reopening and highly anticipated rejuvenation together.

We look forward to welcoming back performers, artists, patrons, and the public to this historic Prairie gem.
