In this venue profile, we visit another downtown Toronto venue, the St. James Cathedral Centre.
The Cathedral Centre, originally built in 1909, recently underwent a three-year renovation process and officially re-opened in spring 2012. Adjacent to the Saint James Cathedral Centre is, naturally, Saint James Cathedral. While the cathedral was built in 1853, the St. James parish has been a part of the historic Saint Lawrence community since it was established in the late 1700s. The architecture of the cathedral church is in the gothic revival style and the spire -standing at 200 feet tall- was once the tallest building in Toronto. It is now designated a Heritage Property by the Ontario Ministry of Culture.
In this venue profile, we will be taking a peek at a brand new venue just outside of the city.

Roy Thomson Hall, Saturday, August 27, 2011
“It looked like Hallowe’en in there!” chuckled a guest in full stage whisper as she exited the funeral service for Jack Layton into the North Lobby of Roy Thomson Hall. The service had just ended and I looked at her to see her expression as the tone was light and, well, giddy. She was already busy popping a mini Beef Wellington into her mouth as were the others around her, nodding in happy agreement.
