The Royal Hall, created for Samson Fox by renowned theatrical designer Frank Matcham and his architect Robert Beale, was completed in 1903. It was conceived as a cure hall, or Kursall, in the tradition of European spa towns. The hall fell in to disrepair but was restored four years ago after a campaign, supported by Edward Fox.
Burrell Foley Fischer led the design team for this sensitive conservation and restoration project by focussing on the authenticity of historic details through careful research. It was recognised with a 2008 BCI Award: Conservation- Highly Commended and a 2009 RICS Pro-Yorkshire Award: Conservation and Overall Best Project.
