Recognised as one of the Hong Kong's finest performing arts venues, Sha Tin Town Hall is also the heart of culture in the east of the New Territories. It is a well designed complex with integrated facilities giving people opportunities to enjoy culture and arts in relaxing surroundings. Whether for dance, drama and music activities, or for exhibitions and conferences, the Town Hall provides a complete range of performance and exhibition venues. It comprises three major facilities: 1372-seat Auditorium, 300-seat Cultural Activities Hall, 378m² Exhibition Gallery and other minor and ancillary facilities. Since its opening in January 1987, it has come to symbolize the department's commitment in the arts, its support for local arts and culture, and its regard to the cultural enrichment of the community.
The Sha Tin Town Hall is a convenient and well-equipped performance venue for the public to enjoy arts and culture, thanks to its geographical edge and a series of facility upgrades and improvements. It has also been working closely with venue partners, arts groups as well as local and overseas artists to present a wide array of cultural programmes, thereby establishing a reputation for programme diversity.
