The King's Hall is a conference, exhibition, sports and music venue on the Lisburn Road in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is the largest exhibition venue in Northern Ireland, having in excess of 10,000 square metres of exhibition space on a 33 acre site. It can accommodate 1,000 conference delegates and provide banqueting facilities for 2,000 diners.
The hall is owned by the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society and was opened on May 29, 1934. It hosts the Balmoral Show, an annual agricultural show. Prior to the Belfast Agreement and the completion of the Odyssey and the Waterfront Hall, the hall was the only large concert venue in Northern Ireland. Bands that have played the venue include U2, Nirvana, The Pogues and The Beatles. The venue is also a famous boxing venue. Rinty Monaghan boxed several times in the hall. A blue plaque was unveiled in his memory at the hall in 2007. In 1985 Barry McGuigan made his first title defence against Bernard Taylor at the King's Hall, having fought there on six previous occasions. Both boxers have become synonymous with the venue. Other famous bouts to have taken place in the hall include Ray Close's rematch with Chris Eubank in 1994, and Dave MvAuley's two fights with Fidel Bassa in 1987 and 1988.
Ireland's largest christian festival Summer_Madness is hosted at the kings hall in early July each year, with 5 days of camping, worship and seminars.
