Anvilversary

One week countdown until The Anvil's 25th birthday!

Posted on

There's only one week to go until The Anvil turns 25, so we're taking this opportunity to reflect on our fondest memories of the venue - from the world-class performers that have graced our stage, to the community that the venue has built, and beyond.

A Basingstoke landmark for a quarter of a century, work began on The Anvil by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in 1992. The quality of the acoustic was the prime consideration throughout the building process, and the auditorium was designed to have near-ideal shape and volume. View pictures of the building process.

We will be marking our 25th birthday with a special concert from our Orchestra in Partnership, the Philharmonia Orchestra. We look forward to celebrating this milestone with many of you at the sold out concert with cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason. Find out more about the story of our partnership with the Philharmonia.
