A historic building in Huron County and the artistic centre of the Blyth community, Memorial Hall is new, improved and cutting edge, while at the same time historic and stunningly preserved.
It was just a few years ago that millions of dollars were injected into the hall, courtesy of the Township of North Huron, the provincial government and local private donors. The result was the complete overhaul and renovation of the hall.
Not only were the seats replaced and the lower hall revamped, but many technical aspects of the hall were also improved, including its sound capability and projection potential, among other areas.
The renovation of the hall marked a new beginning for the Blyth Festival, but also for the hall, which began to attract higher-quality musical acts, such as Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo and the Cowboy Junkies in the years following the renovation.
